Holiday Craft Ideas... Some to make & some checked off the "To Do" list!

Hey everyone!!

I hope this finds you well.. and you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had lots of fun with family and friends! What a great time of year! Sigh...

I love this time of the year!

We finally put up all the fall decor and busted out the Christmas decorations! YAY!

LOVE- LOVE-LOVE Christmas! Who doesn't ? Seriously!

With all the holiday decorations going up, I always tend to donate some of the old hand me downs that we were given..
Well.. it helps decrease my 9 bins of Christmas stuff and it gives me an excuse to make some holiday stuff!

So here are some ideas!!!

Ruffle Pillows
Coffee Filter wreaths for mirrors
Wrag garland
Tree Skirt
Canvas Pictures
Wood Frames

Christmas wreath for front door

 Small Chalkboard from frame

Cute gift box
Made for less than $3.. Had most of the stuff.. Old box, little balls from $ tree, ribbon and spray paint!

Recipe/Pic Holder
Great gift idea

Mantel for stockings and decor on LR wall (IN LOVE) Idea came from Shanty-2-Chic's blog!! It looks just like it and I will post pics once I paint the wall its going on!!

Chalkboard coffee mugs
Definitely need to get a chalk pen!

 These are some of the simple ideas that I finally had a chance to conquer during nap times!
So excited to complete the "To Do" list so I can get my holiday decor in order and completed so we can enjoy this joyous time of year!

What have I been up to the last month!

So as you can tell its been a little while. WOW!! A month!! It has flown by!
Well here is a project that I have been working on for a little bit. I am glad to say it is done and I can display it for all you to see!! YAY!!
 My sister-in-law had found a hutch on craigslist for her front room.. Well to say the least, it wasnt the prettiest thing in the world when she bought it! But a transformation was due to give it new life!
Here you are...
Forgive me for taking this as I started priming... And the darkness..
During naps, and after bedtime has arrived is when I get to work on big projects.. So apologize for the dark pictures.. You will get the idea! U-G-L-Y!! It had cracks, sap build up.. Besides that it had good bones and I knew it could be amazing!!
Yes, I store stuff on top of my projects every now and again..
And are you ready for the after??!!
Black enamel with poly sealant! Awesome!!
It is officially done!! Distressed and everything! Love it!! Cant wait to see how she decorates it for the holidays! Thanks for allowing me to conquer this bad boy!! Enjoy it!
