It all started when I went over to Mimi Sue's cottage (her link is in my sidebar) and just about died after looking at all these adorable snowmen she made. On her Site, she told of this link which has a tutorial: http://joli-paquet.blogspot.com/2008/11/snowman-box-tutorial.html Thank you joli-paquet and Mimi Sue.
My inspiration: The Polka Dot Pixie and Lori Mitchell. I LOVE their work!
Finished product. And if you're in love with these two trees, like me, you will find them at Hobby Lobby this week at half off, which makes them $10 each. : )
So proudly waiving his flag.
I dug this little bell up out of my button bin. I think I've had it since 1832 (J/K...maybe), just like the little red pom-pom for the flag above too. See, even in 1982, I knew I would need that someday. Hee-hee. : )
I decided to shake things up a bit for the big day next Thursday. I took some of the things off my living room table and moved them over here. And then added a few more things just for fun. The table looked sad after I took down the Halloween display. So...
And since I figure half the blogs will be about the midnight showing of Twilight today, I wanted to throw these in so I will look like I'm still "all that". See Sara, I'm right on top of today's lingo. I've switched from "hip and happen'" to "all that". What's that you say, "all that" is from the 90's??? Well, at least I've made it from the 70's to the 90's. No wonder all your friends think your Mom is the "bomb". Ok...I'll stop.
Here's my cute daughter, Emily. I had to meet her at the theater with the ticket Sara picked up for her a few days ago. Em lives 45 minutes out of town. Isn't she just the cutest, cutest thing? Her T-shirt says Team Edward. She went with a bunch of her married friends and Sara went with a bunch of her young friends. However, Em and Sara found each other in the lobby and Sara tells me they got some pix taken together. How fun!!!
