In a rut

Wow! It's been a while, I know. Several times a week I would log on and start writing a post or downloading photos, only to get interrupted by life and I had grandoise plans of sharnever finish what I'd started.

Admittedly, there was/is little happening in the way of additions and improvements in our space due to both lack of time and funding, that I guess I just didn't have much to share...nor did I even feel up to posting for whatever reason.

Maybe I have the December blues? Between the cold, the ridiculous amounts of snow, the early days, working 1 and a half jobs, taking care of everyone while Cory works 14 plus hour days, and just general life crap, I've had no desire to do ANYTHING!

I am hoping that come January, I will be revived and renewed, and everything willl just fall back into place. I am craving creativity and crafty-ness again so I will need to start a project soon but nothing Christmasy was speaking to me this year.

I hope to get my act back together in the next week or so, to share some of our Christmas decor and the like, but in the event I don't, I just wanted to throw my well-wishes out there to each and every one of you who stop by. Even though I am not posting, I am occassionally stopping by and catching up on my favorite blogs! I'm so inspired by so many of you!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Oopsie times two

So, did you know that the "surface hot" light on your stove has nothing to do with the oven?

Oh and that metal spatulas on a hot ceramic cook top will pretty much act like branding iron if you touch them...?

I do now! Yes, both hands got burnt. I bawled for about 4 hours and didn't sleep well. Thankfully, they seem to be healing well and I don't think I will have scars.

That's what I get for cleaning and then saving the dog from putting the smokin hot spatula I dropped, in her mouth!

Good thing: I just so happen to have tomorrow and Monday off from work so at least these babies can heal!

I don't know why my phone photos are showing up sideways... I rotated them..

Fairyland Christmas

I can't believe it is Thursday already! This week just got away from me.

I had a big day yesterday. I did 2 trees and out mantel! But since there was an incident involving my head and a shelf that resulted in a broken plant and water and electronics... I am waiting to see if I fried my router at home! I will get pics up as soon as I can.

In the meantime, I thought I would share with you a photo of the tree I "fixed" yesterday at work. This was a festival of trees purchase a few years back that was looking a little "tired". Plus, it wasn't my style at all so I decided to take it to bare bones and start from scratch.

It's not a typical Christmas tree and actually looks a little more like something in an enchanted forest. There are pinky gold pointsettia branches, metallic mesh leaves, crystal maple leaves, green beaded icicles, green glitter feathers and various baubles in golds and different greens. In my re-do, I eliminated some cheap green plastic ribbon garland and weird, gold vine thingies that someone said looked like mr. Noodles!

Apparently, everyone says it's a big improvement, so I am pleased with my hardwork!
