Howdy do everyone!
Hope you all had a wonderfully relaxing weekend. Most of us could certainly use a little down time following Thanksgiving and Black Friday!! Did anyone get any great bargains? So far I have spent a grand total of $6 on Christmas gifts......lol. I haven't even bought myself anything!! And that is a shock!!! I'm hoping for some cool Cyber Monday deals!!!!
Today was rainy and just BLAH here today. I took one of the boys with me earlier and we were on the lookout for those flame-less tea light things. I have 3 beautiful angels that are a bit high up that I would love to light up but they are in a spot that I really don't need to introduce fire to....lol. I keep them out year round because I love angels :) We never found them tho after hitting a couple stores. My bones were hurting with all of the rain and dampness so we made a sonic pit stop for drinks and then headed back home.
I decorated a bit and it's starting to come together nicely. However Jesse and I are the only two in the house with any Christmas spirit what so ever. Bob gets the grumpies around this time every year anyway.....we were going to do a family photo around the tree but that just wasn't happening this weekend.....grrrrrrrr!!! What's wrong with the people I live with???? I do have a really sweet photo of Jesse to share.....OMG I just love it!!!!
And here is one of Him and Brandon decorating the tree.
I can't wait to scrap these!!!!!
Ok......today's craft is a pretty simple one and they are popping up all over pinterest......it's a wrapped cone tree......a simple styrofoam cone that I already had on hand for some odd reason......jute and beaded ribbon. Also on hand. So the totle cost for this was zip, zero zilch!!! Gotta love those kinds of projects. But if you wish to create your own you can make the cone out of cardstock or find one fairly cheaply at the dollar tree. I got the jute at Bog Lots several nonths ago in the hardware dept......all that is involved is a sinmple matter of wrapping....thats it!!!
Thanks for visiting today.....the boys go back to school tomorrow and I am heading to Goodwill to dig for a HUGE picture frame for a project.......I'm sure I will come home with everything except what I am looking for.......lol.
Have a good one!!!
