Craft time.


So glad it's the weekend! It's been a LONG week for me...

I'm excited to relax a little this weekend, and to do a little Christmas crafting. (nerd, I know)

Did you guys see Sherry's ornaments she made for her Pinterest challenge? Well, they inspired me to make some of my own, and I'm going to get to it tonight. I bought chartreuse, kelly green and turquoise paint to make some of these guys with:


Except I don't think I'm going to make mine "swirly"...I think I'm going to try to do them solid colors. Yes, I would've just bought the ornaments pre-colored, if I could've found them in my weird new Christmas color palette I'm going for this year, but alas, I could not. Last night, I bought the clear glass ornament balls and the paint, and I also ended up buying a new Christmas tree (oops. hah!) You know me, I always have to change it up. I also bought matching wrapping paper and bows...what is happening to me (answer: turning into my mother circa 1995.)?

Hopefully I'll have some photos to share with you guys next week...have a great weekend! :)

  1. Wow, what a great idea! I'm getting rid of all the ornaments I got last year from my dad... purple and gold just isn't my thing... so the kids and I are going to hand make more candy themed ornaments to fill the big tree up. Can't wait to see how your new bulbs turn out! :)
