Hapiness is Being Crafty

I love that I discovered how much I enjoy crafting. My mom and her family are a crafty lot. Quilts, sewing, cooking, baking, upholstery, woodwork, metal work, gardens, yards…oh, my goodness there is an abundance of crafting in my family. With papercrafting and scrapbooking I’m having the time of my life.

I’ve been seeing Christmas topiaries all over and I love them. I purchased the clay pots at Michaels and came home to play. Everything else I had at home.

Little Yellow Bicycle’s Christmas line and stickers.
Corrugated board…it’s everywhere in my house right now!
Tim Holtz Crackle paint, acrylic paint
Kaiser wood holly and “Peace.”
Tim Holtz Fragments
Shredding material and bows were left over from a shipped gift that was sent to Jimmy.
A bit of Distress Ink to enhance the crackle paint
Rod dowel (shhh, we are not telling!)

I actually made most of this while watching football intermittingly throughout the afternoon and evening.

Don’t Forget Tuesday starts the 12 Days of Home for the Holiday and the giveaway also. I’ll be announcing our guests tomorrow. I’m so excited.
