Oh Christmas Tree



























The tree is up.
FooFoo and Bob are checking it out.....
Don't know if they're gonna be naughty or nice....
We played it safe...

Breezy Blow'n White Saturday



Our first snow storm for the year....we started the day with rain and thunder storms and now we have blowing snow.......



It is always fun to watch the birds at the feeder....I use the flower baskets and fill them with seed ...more can fit at one time. It drives the cats crazy!! We get the free entertainment watching them stalk the window...the ears go back and they start chittering as they sneak up for a closer look.


Well not right now.... nap time here. The bad weather has driven the older boys and Oreo into the house for the day...notice Bob in his usual sprawled position.







Bob tends to walk up and plop down on whoever is available.



























I treated myself to some new ink colors. I have been playing with the washers again...





























My special helper Oreo was doing all she could to help me get done with my private Christmas ornament order....she makes quite a nice paper holder....


I try to personalize this order and this one just makes me laugh....hopefully the recipient will too...

I am ready for crafting season to be done so that I can get our home ready for the season....time to get back to work!

Washing Up Christmas Junk Le Bells Style




I have been playing with the washers again! These really are a nice color of red but just not coming out that way when I photograph them.


Here are the supplies you need....




Drop your ink and let it do it's magic then sprinkle with some glitter. I used a craft grade of dimensional coating on these. If you are making jewelry I would reccomend using Colores or Ice Resin they are more durable.



Tie off with whatever you have handy and you are finished.



A great quick little project for this busy time of year.
Thank you to my sponser Jill for Junk Le Bells.....a year of fun ideas!!



I'm linking to a wonderful party with lots and lots of holiday ideas go check it out!
