New car! yippe!

Since I got in my car accident last month I was out of a car! I did get to drive a very nice 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee for almost four weeks. It was a very sad day to have to return that baby, but it is nice to have a car of my own again. Instead of going the SVU route again, we decided on a sedan this time. It did take me a little bit to get used to the car, but now I love it!

I am now part of the Camry crew!

finished terra cotta Christmas tree... finally

So I know I was supposed to put pics of the finished tree up LAST week...but I got distracted by Thanksgiving!

I think it turned out really cute and so easy! Here are the steps again:

1. spray paint three small Terra cotta pots any green (mine was a dark green to match my living room)
2. stack the largest pot on the bottom, then the middle size pot, and finally the smallest on top
3. paint red/burgundy "ornaments" on your tree
4. use a terra cotta saucer spray painted black as the tree skirt
5. put a star on top!

Enjoy the pics! Happy late Thanksgiving friends!

'tis the season!

I have noticed throughout the blog world on the cute Christmas and winter craft ideas! It has really put me in the mood for the season...forget Thanksgiving, I am ready for Christmas!

I am patting myself on the back for getting ALMOST all of my holiday shopping done! woohoo!

The next thing on my list is this adorable Christmas tree craft made out of mini terra cotta pots! It will look so great on my mantel. An added bonus is that I found some mini pots at a garage sale last weekend. SCORE! Vist House of Hepworths to get the directions to make one of these babies. I will post the picture of MY finished product tomorrow!
