a {NOEL} Project

For this project I am using another vinyl cut from Janey-Mac that I designed. My inspiration was the Metal Noel sign from Pottery Barn:

Here is what I created:

Door Vinyl

I placed an order with Janey-Mac for some vinyl and got all my goodies on my door step last week! I cant wait to show you what I have done with all of it! 

The first thing I did was add a little something to our doors.  Take a peek:

I just love all the little details that make a house a home.  Of course the hubby had to ask what the number 1 was for . .I just told him it looked pretty! Enjoy.  If you like any of my vinyl designs. . you can get them at Janey-mac.com and just tell them that I sent you!

Happy Thanksgiving! Christmas Wreath and Mantle

Happy Thanksgiving!
Just in case you did not see my post last month here is my thanksgiving table to inspire you this day:

Today was my favorite day of the year . . Putting up the Christmas Decorations! What made it the best this year is having my mom here to help! love moms . .  I will spend the next few weeks sharing in detail my Christmas creations.  But today I want to show you my Outdoor wreaths and Mantle. 

I just love the way my wreaths turned out!  By grouping ornaments and ribbon in the center of the wreath it changes the traditional look of them!

I love glittery things, especially for Christmas.  I have used the Mercury type glass for my inspiration this season.  Adding in Silver, gold and White. I used the German glass glitter for the "JOY" project.  In addition to placing that on my mantel I have finials, stacked books with Partridges, and a beaded and fir garland.  I hope you get some inspiration from this!  Happy Holidays!

Christmas Banner

Here is another project done with the Old sheet music.  All I did was print "Peace" in the font Kunstler Script (dafont.com) on the sheet music.  I very lightly burnt the edges, punched holes and ran a ribbon through the sheets.  I did tape the back of the sheet music for extra strength before I hole punched them. 

Get creative . . the possibilities are endless with this project! I thought about doing it for gifts this year . . Stay tuned for more Christmas decor from me! enjoy!

{Christmas Decor}

I am thrilled to share that I have now started decorating for Christmas (and have been listening to the music and watching the movies that go along with the season for weeks now) but we don't need to get into that.
The best day of the year is when I pull down the boxes filled with magic and start decorating for the Christmas Season.  I have had a smile on my face since that day!

I would like to share with you my first project for Christmas.  I will have more projects to come but stay tuned as I will put all of the projects together and show you my transformed home!

I love glitter when it comes to Christmas and this wall is full of Sparkle!  I just love it. Here is what you need to create this same look:

I started by arranging the music sheets on poster board then taping them in place. I traced the trees and then glued and glittered them. I used these handy Velcro hangers to apply the poster board to my wall:

 I then started working on the "Merry Christmas" garland.  I hot glued the letters to the doilies, then attached them to a ribbon with metal clips.  I knotted the ribbon in between the letters to add texture. I also used the Velcro hangers to hang the garland on the wall. No holes! Then I added in snowflakes to make my new wall sing of Christmas!

a little addition

I have been busy enjoying my new kitchen and taking a breath of fresh air from all of my projects.  But not to worry!  I have many projects stewing for this Christmas season! 

We did how ever make a little addition to the kitchen:

Audrina Chandelier from Pottery Barn
White Ceiling Medallion from Lowe's

I love it! In addition to all the new things in my kitchen I just have to stress how much I LOVE my single bowl sink!  I don't know why you would ever need two bowls (except for my mothers generation who still insists on washing the dishes BEFORE they enter the dish washer!)
So if you are about to remodel I recommend you consider the single bowl sink!

Enjoy!  And more to come soon!
