A little bit of everything....

First check out the Awesome amount of snow we received on Thursday!! I think we ended up with almost 7 inches. Some may not think it's awesome but I love snow, it brings a smile to my face.

Secondly, Are these not the coolest push pins ever? I found these Christmas Eve in the clearance at Hobby Lobby while doing a little last minute shopping.

I bought a bunch! I LOVE them! They are a nice size and heavy


 And these giganto scissors husband bought me. They are about 18 inches. We seen them Christmas Eve at Hobby Lobby and they were on sale for like $6?....I have been wanting some to hang on my wall in my craft room. These will go nicely with some super cute artwork I'm working on for in there :)

I haven't gotten to do ANY crafting the past few days as I am hard at work getting my craft room organized as I HAVE to have it completed by the end of tomorrow so I can go down the list. Next is the kitchen and I will be posting about that on Wednesday. I have been working on some new fun blocks, like the one ( don't worry it's not done ) above.

I also did finish these up last week. They turned out ok. I just printed my pictures out on regular ole printer paper. I added the letters to my pictures using my fave Anyways, I was just playing around and trying them out. I do like them and they will look so much better using the proper paper and color. They are supposed to be black and white but they were printed on a black and white printer only so hence the dullness.

Also some more Love blocks.

Oh and check out my new etsy banner, isn't it cool? Love the little owl! I got mine here and let me tell you this girl is Rockin Awesome!! SUPER FAST and she does a wonderful Job workin with you! You can get a custom etsy banner or blog header for about $12. She's working on one for my blog now :)

I have lots of cool projects coming your way this week and FINALLY the washer video tutorial. I am working on a photo wreath, a couple of knockoffs from Ballard Designs and Pottery Barn, a giganto bulletin board for my room, and finally finishing up the toile dressform that has been sitting and waiting for me....

I also now have a few things to make and mail before Tuesday as today I found out that a girl that I went to highschool with is battling cervical cancer and they are having a benefit next weekend the 16th and I was asked to send some things to be auctioned and of course I said yes. She is married and has 4 little ones, so please keep her family in your prayers. If anyone is interested in donating an item to be auctioned contact me and I'll tell you where to mail it.

Have a Lovely Sunday!
