I am so excited. I had a great day today, we had a snow/ice day off of school. It was so good to stay home and just enjoy myself. My son in law was off also so I didn't have to watch the grandchildren either. I slept till 9 which is late for me and then got some much needed me time. I finished up two ornaments and then I got a bit daring. This design is by BlackBird designs "My Pink House", I had stitched it some time ago. the book that it was in had the instructions to finish it on a box. I had all the things I needed for awhile and I just couldn't seem to get the nerve up to attempt to put it all put together. I had never did anything like this before, but I did it, I did it, and I am so happy that I did. I decoupaged all the paper on it and that was a first for me and I really enjoyed it. It's not perfectly even and I followed the directions pretty close, changed a little to suit the box I got. I am very happy the way it came out, so I had to share it with all of you my friends.
I also decorated these 2 shirts for my granddaughter. She loves them. They were pretty easy to do and I was going to add a little more bling on them but they kind of looked cute just the way they are.
I need more days like today, we all do. What fun to get so much done. I also took out an old Christmas UFO and managed to put some stitches on that, hope to finish it in the next couple days so I will be sharing that soon too. The ornies I put together I can't share pics yet because the recipients are readers of my blog and I want them to be surprised. I will share pics as soon as they are received.
If all this creativity wasn't enough, the mailman brought me a wonderful new chart.
Isn't it wonderful, my wheels are spinning around thinking of all the wonderful gifts and ornies that can be made out of this one chart. Isn't it beautiful. Thank you, Bonnie from the Painted Giraffe, who sent it out to me so fast. I love it. I can't find the link to her store but as soon as I do I will post it.
Looks like we may have another day off tomorrow, I have a doctor's appointment though and not sure if I will be able to make it with the roads so bad. Will just have to entertain myself around here I guess, wonder what I can make next? Hmmm I will be having great dreams thinking about it that's for sure. Good night all!!
