Well, I didn't wake up with the intention of working on Christmas before Halloween, but it just happened. I found out this week that our town square open house will be the weekend before Thanksgiving. I was determined that I wouldn't display Christmas before Thanksgiving, but I'm afraid I'll just have to give in on this one.
This morning I drove to the shop to pick up the small table I was working on yesterday. On the way I stopped at Wal-Mart for milk and eggs. One thing led to another and before I knew it, I had a few odds and ends for projects I've been meaning to play around with.
The first was mercury glass containers. I tend to hang on to things even though I don't always know what I'll use them for. Same was true for the candle holders I used at Eric's 40th birthday. Today those found their purpose. I'm still playing with process. More on that later.
I love paper. I tore pages out of my son's out of date college literature book, mod-podged them to craft paper and slathered on the glitter. There's more to this, but again that's a post for later.
I was already coated in mod-podge so, I tackled the thift store Christmas balls I picked up on our weekend at Lake Guntersville. I used torn strips of sheet music and again, slathered on the glitter. I have LOTS of these so they're no where near finished.
I also finally got around to making a wreath with the boxwood's I preserved a while back.
I hung this to take a couple pictures and realized how much I'm looking forward to Christmas this year! :) Fingers crossed my enthusiasm lasts long enough to get the shop AND the
house ready for Christmas.
Happy Sunday friends and relations.
