deck the halls

just spending the day getting the house ready for winter, the holidays. so far, i have managed to drag several tubs up to the main floor. now i am sitting here looking at them and thinking it's time for a break already. ha!

one item i am so eager to play around with is this fabulous wire wreath...here's a little peek at it. more on that in a minute:)

taking photos for my december daily album, of the process...

ok. i'm tired now. i think i'll take these back downstairs and pretend i decorated. why do these things that i really enjoy sometimes seem like a lot of work?!? am i just lazy? that's a rhetorical question, fyi.

one more shot, just to take up more time.

oh - and now back to the potential of this fabulous wreath! i have had my eye on these for over 2 years; but every time i tried to get one, they were sold out. so this year, beth, the gracious owner of Patina White was kind enough to place another order for these after her wonderful winter event was over. i am the proud owner of three of these now. and i can say that because my husband doesn't read my blog.

so anyway - this wreath seems to promise great things - it can be decorated for every season or for no reason at all! and now i'm ready to show you what beth did with one of hers...

ack! isn't it fab-u-lous? and this photo is borrowed from beth's blog, so all credit goes to her...thank you, beth, for getting more of these beauties for a few of your customers! it's much appreciated:)


days of december 2011

just a quick post to share photos of my december daily. yes, i'm going to do this for the second year and it is going to be very simple...i love simple, more and more. here are my covers:

everything is from my stash. the covers are made from brown shipping boxes that we had around here. i mod podged the crate paper peppermint collection - ski lodge on the outside covers and then applied (vintage) hambly and (vintage) making memories rub ons.

i'm sad to say that three fabulous sheets of hambly paper were needlessly hacked to pieces due to my poor measuring skills...and then mod podged to the insides of the covers.

i like the irregularities of the handmade covers, the corrugated pattern that shows through from the box pieces, and the overall imperfection of this handmade project. i have plain white cardstock pages punched and ready to go - now i'm wondering if i'll go with kraft instead. either way - simple and easy is my 2011 december daily philosophy!
