Oh Betsey!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I sure did. Christmas is my favorite holiday and every year I love it more and more. I get a lot of gifts that I love, but this year I received a Betsey Johnson accessory set. It was probably my most favorite gift! If you know me, you know how much I LOVE Betsey Johnson things! Maybe I will post all of them at a later date?!? Here's my gift from Christmas:

I hope everyone has a great New Year!

Canvas Tree

So I had a blank, white canvas and had no idea what to do with it. I was on a new site called pinterest and saw this idea. The person actually used all cream buttons, but in order to save money, I used all the buttons I already had. I think it came out alright. Drawing the branches was the hardest part. I think my Dad said it the best "That could probably sell for $1 million dollars in some fancy, weird art store!" Thanks Dad, but probably more like $1.

Tree Magnets

My first inspiration for this magnet was obviously a Christmas tree (HELLO DECEMBER!) But as I got to making them, I realized I can use any pattern of paper and use them year round. Hope you like!

Pointsetta wreath

I recently made this from a Martha Stewart craft kit. It was originally $16 and I found it at Marshalls for $6.99. It took a lot of time cutting the petals and leaves. But, I'm happy with the way it turned out. I think I'm going to give it as a Christmas gift.
