Lots to share

Sorry I have not posted in a while, but I have been really busy working on several projects which I am about to share with you.

Lowes Home Improvement store sends out a magazine called Creative Ideas and in the latest issue they had an altered paint can. Just about that same time, Stephanie Ackerman from Homegrown Hospitality also featured an altered can. So, using them as my inspiration, this is what I came up with. A Christmas Ornament Countdown. I covered the can in paper and added some ribbon and a few little embellishments. The ornaments on the inside are all made from various Christmas dp.

The next item I made is an altered clipboard, which is also a countdown to Christmas. This was alot of fun to do and easy too. I think I will definately be doing more of these!

I found these cute little jars at our local craft store and just thought they would be a cute gift for someone you might not otherwise give a gift to (like the mailman, or the coffee shop person that serves you daily!) These jars were only 1.00!

Lastly, but not least because these are my favorites....I found these cute adorable little books on Nicole Heady's blog "Capture the Moment".
These books are so easy to do and you can make them for any occasion.

And with all that going on, I did manage to sneak a few minutes to visit with the newest addition to our family. Hayden, you are so super duper cute! I just love babies and it was so nice to be able to hold him for a while. Until he spit up all over himself and then it was time to give him back to his mom!

Well, I hope everyone is having a good week!

Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.
