Christmas Treats

A Home for the Holidays

Our first Christmas as a married couple in our first home. I'm the luckiest girl alive I'm a princess in a 1905 dream castle and I couldn't be more happy. 

what we have to be thankful for....

So Thanksgiving was a bit stressful... with school on the mind, awkward moments with the relatives, and our beautiful Cadillac being badly hurt from a run in with a deer-the poor deer didn't make it either. However, we keep our spirits high by thinking about how blessed we are! Not to mention we have the love of two very handsome young pups.

what a very sad weekend for a crafter and her pup

OH! POOR POUCH! Not only was it a hard day for little Milly but It was a very long depressing weekend for Victoria and I. OH WELL-Better luck next time! I HOPE!

the sale...

All ready to go...a friend at school was so sweet and bought some of my work to give to her expecting cousin. So I wrapped in up in sweet pink so that it will arrive to the new mom in style. I hope she likes them!

Here are some pics. of the sign I made for the sale-I'm very proud of it-Because its just so cute!


Last year about this time I was busy making these adorable little elephant cards and tags. They were a complete flop! I only sold a couple and I know they bought them out of pity. But I still love them and they have been very useful this year for gifts at baby showers.

More homemade art

I've been busy working on my crafts to sale at Chrismas bizarres and are the latest of the bunch.
Please don't be scared off by the terrible saturation of the photos....I promise the colors are much more pleasant in real life!

new family member!

Santa(AKA my husband) suprised me yesterday with a very early Christmas present!!! It was love at first sight! OH Charlie(our Jack Russle) wasn't very happy at first, but tonight while I sit in class-my husband calls just to say they are playing together! YEAH! So the tree wont have any gifts under it for me but wouldn't you say it was worth it?!!

linens on my mind....

I spent almost all Saturday trying to find napkins for my diner party today. I found nothing! Eventually I settled on 8 basic red ones because they would match both my china and my everyday set. So when I got home I started my online are my favorite finds-

my wedding

Lately everyone has been sending me pictures they took at my someways I feel like I wasn't even there because so much of it I never saw. But now I think I have wedding fever....AGAIN! I can't stop thinking about just how perfect it was!

Last Christmas I came downstairs to this beauty. The ultimate dream for any 22 year old! It was like I was 5 all over again. I was so excited I couldn't believe what I was seeing. My own PINK Hello Kitty Bike!♥

Now I just need to get my husband on some fly John Deere Wheels and we can cruz the town in style!

Halloween is coming to town.....

For the first time I can decorate the way I want to! I made these glittery pumpkins and letters last month when my mother-law was in town. This is a very inexpensive project-I bought all the pumpkins at second hand stores. However glitter can be a bit pricey! I can't wait to share my halloween costume pictures....I'm going to be a fairy-and my husband wants to be Joe dirt-GOOD GRIEF!☆

new crafts

I have been busy busy working on my crafts for this holiday season. Each year I start a new craft and take them to craft sales and such in the hope that I'm going to find that craft that I love to do and people love to buy. Last year I made this really cute elephant cards and no one baught them and I felt terrible. But they have been great to use through out the year so no big loss. I will post a few pictures of what I have left of the elephant cards later. Today I would like to show you just a couple of this years project. My friend helped me name my idea......"Chelsea's Childhood"-Picture Book art.....
Anyways let me know what you think of I said they are just a few....these things are all over my house.

I should note that some of these are part of a set....

my very own ribbon jars

I got inspired one day by a post at one of my very favorite blog spots-Happy Cavalier. The post was about Ribbon Jars that you can buy...I thought that they were just so wonderfully colorful. So I got busy making my own ribbon jars with all my ribbon I had hid away in a drawer.

let's talk cupcakes

I am pretty sure that if you look up the word cute in the dictionary there is going to be a picture of a cupcake right next to it.

I'm sad not to share a close up of my wedding camera crew totally blew that one. But let be tell you they were fabulous! We had different kinds and different sizes. Each cupcake was its own unique peice of art. And I made the stand myself so that all together it looked like one giant cake. I also was in charge of all of my I lived at Goodwill for months collecting all the treasures for a shabby chic bird themed wedding.

I got this cupcake cookie jar from my grandma. One day I realized it was no longer on top of her counter and I insisted on knowing where she put it. Thank god it was only in the grandmother has a way of throwing things out!

These little guys would be quite charming next to my cupcake jar. You can find them at Rose and Radish.
