Deanna made a fabulous Christmas Tree out of curled papers and a Styrofoam cone. I just fell in love with it and knew I had to go to Hobby Lobby and purchase everything to make myself one. Here is the website where Deanna found the tree idea http://murdocks.typepad.com/polishedtoperfection/2007/11/index.html This lady has made some wonderful Christmas trees. I wish I had taken my camera with me so that I could have gotten pictures of Deanna's tree. I loved the paper she used. The paper defiantly makes a huge difference in how beautiful they look. So after a fun evening, I came home and did a little reading on the website she shared with me and planned out my shopping trip to Hobby Lobby. On Saturday after a work picnic, I headed to Hobby Lobby with a couple of my friends. My friend Glenda gave me the best gift ever. I was so surprised when she said she had something for me. I was even more surprised when I saw what it was.
Again I used Basic Grey "Fruitcake" on my tree. I guess you can tell by now that I really do love this paper. So now for my tree, alls I need now is a topper. I plan to go back to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to find just the perfect star for my cute little curly tree.
Today, after sleeping very late, I went over to another one of my friends house and we worked on Christmas cards. She wanted to learn the prisma/mineral spirits technique. Together, we created a couple of fabulous Christmas cards for her to make for her sewing students. We had a great time Stamping and chatting the afternoon away!!!! I love weekends like this one. I cannot think of too many other things I like better than spending time with my friends.
