Well, I don't ever make New Year's Resolutions, but I did make a resolution to get Jessie's closet cleaned out over the four day's off for New Year's.
Julie, (son #2's girlfriend) had left a book for me when she came over for Christmas and I made the mistake of picking up this book......................
on New Year's Eve, and I couldn't put it down! So now you see why I don't make New Year's resolutions, I couldn't even keep the one resolution I made for the weekend!!!
I have gotten a few crafty things done in between the hustle and bustle of the holiday's. I made the ever popular (to crafty bloggers), washer necklace. Excuse the bad quality of the pictures.
A closer look at the ribbon covered washer.
I used wide ribbon to cover both sides of the washer. I should have changed out the blade in my exacto knife for a smoother cut. It hangs low and looks good with a colored sweater.
I also made a slipcover for my lampshade in the bake center. This light stays on all the time.
Once I got the slipcover on I decided to paint the lamp white. It was black.
I like it so much better! Since I had the white paint out, I painted a thrift store mirror I had in the garage.
My sewing room is decorated with white framed mirrors. I may try to "shabby" it up with some wood appliques painted white. I think I have some in my wood/craft supplies, leftover from other projects.
We are supposed to get snow starting in the early morning. 2 - 4 inches possible. I am hoping for another 4 day weekend! Only so I can actually get the one resolution I made, accomplished and start the year off right!!!!
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! (with no power loss, please)
