Time to pull back the curtains and tame this years Christmas captures. Whatever has been picked up at thrifts and sales has been placed in a cabinet for later pilfering. Since I have a day of contractor babysitting there is no better time than the present. It is like finding these goodies all over again...
Just as fun as sorting buttons. I use these small condiment containers to keep them safe and at hand.
Paper pretties and graphics galore. That's what I keep in my toolbox.
With the glue gun warm I had to try out some new ideas.
Irmi mobile angels mixed with vintage greens, reflectors, and glass ornaments.
My first attempt at a Patriotic Christmas...
Reflectors, spun heads, glass beads, aluminum glitter and floral signs.
It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
Beautiful cherub faces dotted with glitter and snow!
On a side note...I would like to say that I clearly have gone into the wrong profession. As motherhood is all consuming and there is never a day off I watch bewildered, angry, jealous, and astounded as my painting crew of two arrive at the very grand time of 1:00pm...take a smoke break in their car (that I had to help jump start yesterday) around 2:30pm...and pack up and leave for their presumably finished home at the very late time of 4:00pm.
I knew I should have just done it myself...I would have been done by now!
