I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and do my top 10 of 2010. I'm hoping it will get me motivated to get crafting again now that the dust has settled and the boxes are mostly unpacked. And now that my blog is growing, some of you may have missed some of these posts when I only had 17 followers!
Kim from seven thirty three-a creative blog posted this adorable sock cupcake tutorial on Creativity for Kids today. I think this would make the perfect teacher appreciation gift, or even something fun for those Grandma's out there!
While everyone around me is busily preparing for the holidays by decking their halls, my halls are still bare. I have not one...
but two mantels in my new house that are just begging to be decorated and yet, you can't decorate if you don't even have silverware in the drawers yet!
So please enjoy some inspiration while I schlep boxes and beds over to the new house today, in hopes that at least the tree will get set up this weekend. Fingers crossed!
And speaking of trees, don't you love this sweet little rose petal tree? I love the vintage feel of it and could envision several sitting on a mantle. Head on over to Marvelously Messy to see her tutorial
Aren't these fabric covered poster board trees amazing?! I have so many fabric scraps on hand that would be perfect. Go visit Cyndy at The Exchange for the how to .
I love a good mantle with the stockings all hung. So I was excited when I saw that Kalleen At Second Street is offering this adorable Believe printable for all of us.
Head on over and check out all three of these wonderful blogs today. Thanks for the inspiration!
I have zero time to craft these days. We sign the papers for closing on our new home today and start moving in this week. I don't have a single Christmas decoration up around my house but wish that I did. So when I saw these three beauties when I was reading my blog roll, I knew I had to feature them. I only wish I had time to craft some of these guys up!
Isn't this scrabble tile coaster super fun? My mom is a major scrabble junkie and these would have been a perfect gift for her. Definitely on the to do list for next Christmas. Hop on over to Danielle is Nesting for the tutorial.
I was drawn to this handmade pine cone ornament instantly. I love the brown ribbon and the glitter. You can find the tutorial at Room to Inspire.
And last but not least, this amazing berry beady wreath from Joy is at Home. I love the silver and the blue combination. You can find the tutorial here
A big thank you to all the ladies for the inspiration and the tutorials! I can't wait to get crafting again!
I'm so busy trying to pack up our house and prepare to move, that I am super disappointed that I am not able to keep up with all of the Christmas crafts I would like to. I've been featuring a few so that you can be inspired and that I can remember all the wonderful things I want to do when I am not knee deep in boxes.
So when I saw this adorable paper Christmas tree, I knew I had to feature it. Head on over to Joy is At Home for the tutorial.
It's going to be busy around my house for the next month or so. Back in July my husband and I put an offer on this house. We have been waiting for the deal to go through and in terms of a short sale four months isn't that long. We got both of the bank approval papers from the sellers loans, and now are moving forward. So with the inspection behind us and the closing date looming (less than two weeks away) we are moving very quickly. Bear with me as we go through these changes. I will be sure to have lots of posts as we make our new house a home.
While I was on vacation I didn't do a very good job of taking pictures for What I Wore Wednesday. But we did get this sunset beach shot of my family that I thought I would share with you. So for this week, we will be doing the What I Wore Wednesday-garage sale family edition. Are you ready?
From left to right:
My son Aidan: Unionbay shirt-$1
Me: Romy dress clearance $4.99
My daughter Isabella: Gap shirt-50 cents
Justice shorts: $1
My husband Mike: Polo Shirt:$1
My son Owen: Gap shirt: 50 cents
Total for the family: $11.99
No joke! The whole family was dressed for under $12. And we don't look half bad!
And one last show and share: One of the highlights of the trip was being able to see turtles hatch and get to release them into the ocean. Our family is still talking about it. Isn't that a cool experience?!
