Happy New Year!

I woke up to snow here in NJ this morning. I want to wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe new year. Since it was my 50th post yesterday I want to celebrate by having a giveaway...perhaps with a Valentine's theme...Leave a comment between now and Sunday at midnight and I'll draw a winner. I will announce the winner on Monday January 5th, 2009.

Snowball Candles

Here's a quick and cute project that Jen over at Sanctuary Arts had a tutorial on. Go check it out. Her link is in the sidebar. I absolutlely love this new product that she introduced me to called Snowtex. I'm thinking of other ways to use some cute snowmen or putting it onto some pinecones.

Look What Santa Brought

Look what I got from Santa. I already ripped open the pink tennis balls and they went into the garbage . I also peed on my bed. My mom wasn't too happy about that. I just wanted to mark my territory! Cali

New Christmas Decor

I went to Michaels, Joanns and the supermarket last night and I just couldn't resist buying some more holiday decorations. Michaels and Joanns had 70% off(yes I said 70!) I bought some berry picks for 29 cents each. I wanted more but all I could find were 9 of them. Don't think I'm not going to check out other Michaels stores for more of them. I also got a felt star treetopper from Joanns. It's a Debbee Mumm and was $4.80. Then from the supermarket I got the berry wreath and bark tree for $5 each. I had some extra garland,already lit and added to the bed. The fabulous pillow is from jenn of noodle and lou.

Not So Pretty...

My attempts at making a gingerbread house did not go so well. I bought the kit on sale at Michael's and thought, this will be so easy. After the wall started collapsing I lost my enthusiasm in decorating it.

Oh Christmas Tree..

Well the tree is up. Just some minor problem with half of the lights not working. I ran over to Michaels for another set and when I got home and plugged them into the rest of the lights...miracle, the lights that weren't working just turned back on. I had to elevate the tree even more this year so Cali wouldn't be too tempted. So far, she hasn't even noticed the tree.

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas...

Last night I pulled out my decorations. The tree isn't up yet...The problem is last year Cali was 4 months old when I put the tree up. I put it up on a table to discourage any curiosity that nosy girl may have had....she was just tall enough to reach the tree skirt(and pull it) and jumped up a couple of times and pulled ornaments off. This year I need to elevate the tree even more...I am thinking of a plant stand that I have...we'll see how that goes. In the meantime here are pics of the decor.
