NYE - 2020 Style!

Image
  It's been a year.  Everything is weird, including the holidays, and that will include New Year's Eve.  Have no fear, I have a solution!  Tell me what you think...... I  grabbed a plastic container and a package of iridescent shreds   from the dollar store. Then  I bought a small bottle of champagne  and put some Hershey's Kisses in a cello bag with a cute tag.  I was practically done!    The whole thing needed a little sign, so one was designed and cut from cardstock on my Cricut.  I added sparkly embossing powder:  Tapped off t he excess  and heated it with my heat gun: The black hat was glued on and the entire thing was attached to a wooden skewer painted white. Everything was arranged in the container and it was done.  Now, there are other things that could be added: a noisemaker, champagne glass, NYE Hat, etc.  When I went looking, those things were not out on store shelves.  Since the Covid numbers have been rising around here, I wasn't going out again in search

Rosie is an Angel

Image
  If you know anything about Rosie, you are definitely thinking that this title is a mistake.  Rosie, my Sassy Dress Form is decked out for the holidays as an angel and it's mostly because I found this fabulous set of wings at an estate sale this year.   As soon as I saw them I knew what her Christmas look would be!  In these days of climbing Covid numbers, I had no desire to go out shopping for her outfit so I did the next best thing, I shopped my house! A white t-shirt and some of those pretty slips from another  estate sale gave her the perfect base. The outfit was looking pretty plain and we all know Rosie will not stand for 'plain' so I dug out some lace panels, also found at an estate sale. After some wrapping, draping, pinning, and, of course adding the wings, I had a look that made me happy.   Rosie had a few thoughts.....Yes, she was outraged that she was dressed in curtain panels.  After reminding her there was a pandemic and I wasn't going shopping, she sti

The Christmas Mermaid

Image
  This little project got it's start almost a year ago.  I was walking through TJMaxx last January, perusing the leftover Christmas merchandise, when I spotted her:  The Christmas Mermaid.   It just so happens I know someone who loves mermaids, and a Christmas Mermaid?  Bonus points! Welcome back to the 'Do It Over' Designers blog hop.  We are a group of bloggers who love to recycle/upcycle/DIY.  I'm so happy to host this blog hop and hope you'll visit everyone to see what they have to share with you.  Their links will be listed at the end of this post.  This mermaid was originally a large gift sack.   It came with two red rope ties that I pulled out before I took the picture. I thought it was a shame to use it for gift-wrapping - never to be seen again, and it already had this wonderful channel sewn-in at the top: So, out came the seam ripper and the side seams were gone in no time at all.  I cut the sack across the bottom and I now had two large pieces.  Here'

Christmas Barn

Image
 I'm back! After 3 weeks of healing my injured finger and dealing with a bad flair-up of my vertigo, I am finally on the road to recovery...the sad thing is my 'holiday mojo' seems to have disappeared.  I just don't have the enthusiasm that I normally do at this time of the year and I'm not sure if it's because of my recent health issues or just 2020.  Is anyone else feeling the same way?  I need to shake this off, so any and all suggestions are welcome. In spite of that, I do have a sweet little project to share with you today.  This one was started a few months ago and the only things left were a few finishing touches. As many of my projects do, this little barn started out as a scrap of wood.  I drew the pattern and cut it out. Naturally, I started cutting and then realized I needed a picture!  You love that about me, don't you!  LOL Since the barn needed a roof, I grabbed some popsicle sticks, gave it a quick measure, and cut them with a hacksaw.
