I really can't believe myself. I just get through with a few Valentines crafts and I swore today that it was going to be a free day for me. It's not that I'm a avid crafter or anything, because I am far from that. I have 1/10 of the inventory that most crafters have their own places. Well, I looked in one of my closets and I saw that I had lot of corrugated cardboard, and jeans that I didnt want anymore and thought to myself.. hmm....that could be a craft or two. The wheels starting to spin and after bringing the materials to the front room and sitting there and thinking what was I going to do with cardboard and jeans, this is what I came with. This is the most time consuming project that I ever did. This was an all day craft, but I didnt care, I was not going anywhere. I hope that you like it.

It was hard to take down the Christmas decorations this year for me. The lights and all the colors really made the place looked great. Now it's pale in comparison... but take heart .. because soon I will be doing some crafts for Valentines Day and put a few things colorful around the place. I have a vase in my bedroom that I made out of corrugated cardboard and made paper flowers out of coffee filters. Thats was in the fall when I made alot of crafts before Halloween. I had pieces of corrugated cardboard that I folded into a hexagon shape and then I used tacky glue to make a seam all the way down the vase. Then I sponge painted the vase, put glitter around the vase and made the paper flowers out of coffee filters.

I spend Christmas at one of sister's house. We have a big family but we all live at different states. These year we decided to get together which was great. My mom and one of my sister's live in Florida and flew in to my sisters in Chgo. I took a train, which was a 2 1/2 hour trip. I can't complain about the trip, I bring my magazines and the trip goes really quick. My other sister from California could not make the trip. My sister that had the get together, she has three adult kids and each have their own kids. Well, suffice to say when everyone gets together theres is a crowd. My sister's house is always so cozy with her beautiful decorations and she's been collecting nutcrackers as long as I remember. She also collects old Santa's and put them on top of an entertainment center with a blanket of snow underneath with lights underneath. Her tree with all the ornaments is gorgeous and with the many gifts underneath is a beautiful site. She made up a cutest room for me while I was staying there. She had a Christmas scene quilt on the bed with throw pillows with the same pattern. There was a chair with stuffed animals on it. She had a side table with a fiber-optic snowman that I could turn on at night. My mom and my other sister had the room next door and their room was also cute with Christmas quilts on their beds. Besides of the anesthetics of the house, talk about food, we never saw so much in our lives, the treats that my sister put out. She still with her tradition with 10 or more kinds of Christmas cookies, bars that she bakes and she starts around 2 weeks prior to Christmas. She has the cookies in the dining room table in silver trays with tags labeled they are. We had a great time and they decided that they will do the same thing next year.
