Hallmark Movies Turn Your Brain to Mush…

So it is “Countdown to Christmas” on the Hallmark channel.  Did you know that they have two channels?  So all day long the play these really awesome (if you like sappy, formulaic, hokey love stories) Christmas movies.  You know the kind.  A woman meets a man in a ridiculous situation and they do not get along.  Sparks fly.  You know right away that they will fall in love. Something happens to make them realize that they love each other (usually after a day or two), but they find out there is something big keeping them apart.  In the end Santa grants a Christmas wish and they live happily ever after.  The last shot is always a kiss. 

After two weekend engrossed in Hallmark channel movies, I finally did something. I made ornaments!


You need double sided Christmas paper and a stapler.  Cut one inch strips, 2 @ 6″, 2 @ 5″, 2 @ 4.5″ and 2 @ 4″.  Start with th 4″ strip put them together with…

Santa Claus Is Coming to Town!

Merry Christmas!

I hope you were on the nice list this year!  I think I was. 😄!

These past two weeks have been crazy!  All my free time was taken up with getting ready for today.

My sister has joined me in the year of craftiness project and has completed her first project.  She is an elementary school teacher and wanted to do something special for her fellow teachers; so she made wooden Santa Claus ornaments for each of them. They are totally cute!

Wooden ornament hand cut and hand painted.

First she used the scroll saw to cut the various pieces.  Then she hand painted each piece, glued them in place and added a button nose.  What fun!

I hope you and your loved ones have a spectacular Christmas and a wonderful new year!
