Burlap Wall Hooks....DIY day!



First let me say it's 5:47 am, and I have NOT been to bed. Now I stay up late way to much but this is just awful. My littlest bugaboo, whom is one is yes sick again. I am not sure we will ever be rid of the colds, coughs, sniffles, and flu in this house. It's AWFUL! Anyone else feel this way? We are all JUST getting over it, my tonsils are just now feeling better and here the poor little guy has it all over again and way worse. I called the nurse a couple of hours ago as he is breathing very hard and so congested, and coughing like crazy, but she said to do what we have been doing and so I will just call the Doc in the morning. Oh and get this! Our oldest is in second grade, Guess how many kids were in school in his class today? FOUR! The rest out sick. I have to admit at first I played with the idea that it was our fault as all the boys were just at our house, lol but no.

Anyway...It's Snowing! Yeahhhhhhh! I hear snow plows and I love it!!! I love love love the snow! We have winter storm advisorys today!! Wooohooo!




Ok, so I bought these hooks over the summer at Hobby Lobby, they were in the 90% off clearance and I love getting things like this as you know you can alter them. These yes are cute but not my cute.




So of course I added some burlap and cut out stencils with my cricut expression, then got out the black paint and stenciled away. Numbers + Burlap = My obsession. Love them. It's just to easy.

I am participating in DIY day for the first time in FOREVER over at Kimba's. Seriously it's been awhile. Things have been crazy hectic but I can't let that get me and my blog down. Go over and check out everyone's Awesome Diy Projects! Be prepared to be inspired! I will have a few more DIY's up in todays party!

Hi Nicole ~
You poor thing - I hope your son gets better and you get some sleep. I get up about 4:30 a.m. with hubby - so I blog a little before getting ready for work.
I haven't visited in a while and I see that you have burlap fever ! I am impressed that during the holidays you are still creating ! I have been too busy decorating to be crafty...don't worrry I will catch up !
I love your moms creations - the apple doesn't fall far from the tree :o)

I hope everyone is feeling better and you get a good nights sleep! Those hooks are so cute though, I too love burlap and numbers. What would we do without those fabulous 90% sales?

Nicole,
Those look like they came right out of Antropologie! Perfect! And the balls below-they look so pretty! I had forgotten about them as I used to make them when I was a little girl! We used to use the previous years Christmas cards...I will go check out Martha!!
I do hope you all shake this thing...Luckily I was the only one here to get the flu (knock wood) but now I have a stinkin' cough!

Yucky sickness! And wowsers! I could never stay up that late and function (let alone be a mom)! Loving the crafts - you are amazing! Looks like you take after your mom's talent! Oh and so you don't think I am ungrateful...I never received your package you sent...must have gotten lost in the mail. And I would be interested in those sites that you were talking about if you have time to email me them that would be great! Thanks!
