When the craft bug hits you...

It has been too long since we have found the time and energy to create at our house. But with the introduction of "Pinterest" to my life (thank you Alisa and Melissa) inspiration has once again landed smack dab in the middle of the kitchen table and has caused glue covered fingers, neck aches, paint smears and some not to shabby creations. I really can only show this one. The personal nature of the subject matter would be much to revealing to those who may or may not be receiving these creations for the upcoming holiday....I'm just sayin"

I was feeling inspired...

This year, my Christmas tree needed a little "punch" to help it out. We have a very traditional Christmas tree. We are partial to old family ornaments and ornaments that represent something we love or given to us by someone we love. I love colored lights both solid for consistent lighting and blinking to give the tree motion. I know what I like for our tree.

This year, because of a minor remodeling of the living room, I had to rethink where all the Christmas decorations were going to find homes. I will have to say that some did not make the cut...but because I manage a thrift store they found re-purposing. I decided to update and freshen everything with some new decorations that give the whole room a little more consistency.

So how to tie the Tree into the whole "theming" process?

Tree Picks!!!

I'm thinking of making a come back

Stay tuned for an update from a blogger from days gone by. I'm hoping to become inspired to start using this space again. It may be for new thoughts from my life or maybe the same old things that I hold dear. Either way I am hoping for some inspiration, some clarity, some advice, some social networking and maybe even some humor
