Yes. I am STILL procrastinating on my edits. The BS with Amazon did not help with that, though I did get my account back last night (finally). So, instead of working on what I SHOULD be working on, I played.
That crazy kick in the butt from my creative muse? It was another nutcracker project. My amazingly wonderful cousin collects santas. I had considered buying her one this year, but could never find one that I really liked. After decorating this year and pulling out my giant nutcrackers I made last year I got to thinking… “If I can do massive, why not do a smaller one?”
I finished that craft project my crazy muse demanded I work on. I’m only giving a sneak peak because it is a gift and I don’t want to spoil the surprise. Pictures of the finished project will come after the gift has been received. That said, I’m really pleased with how this turned out as, because as usual, I’ve never done this before. Kinda. I had really hoped that once I got this out of my system I’d be ready to get back to edits, but… now I feel like I spent the last two days doing hard labor, which I really didn’t. I think I’m going to just take today and the weekend to veg and get back to it on Monday.
I figured now would be a perfect time to repost this in case anyone is feeling ambitious this season!
Oodles of hours, multiple trips to both the hardware store and the craft store later and my life size giant nutcrackers are done! Continue reading “Repost: Giant Nutcrackers How To”

Today started out not so great but ended up way better than I’d hoped after the way it started. Continue reading “Getting Closer”
I got all of my major painting done (maybe), thank goodness! I’ve realized that I’m really not a fan of spray paint. I learned yet another new thing yesterday. It can trigger migraines. Yay. Continue reading “Little Bump”
After taking my lazy day yesterday, I’m back to working on my giant nutcracker project. Continue reading “Back To Work”
This took longer to get to than I had hoped, but I finally managed to work it in between other projects and got this finished. Continue reading “Ottoman Recover Finished”
My ottoman recover project got put on a slight hold. I had fully intended to get started last week, but hit a snag and may end up going a whole other direction. Continue reading “Temporary Hold”
We recently got new living room furniture. The original plan was to completely replace all the old, but once we got the new all set up and arranged, I decided that I didn’t want to give up my old ottoman. It is this big piece on wheels that is perfect for sharing and with all the new furniture being more modular with just a couple of chairs and a love seat, I really wanted to be able to have options. Sadly, the old one not only didn’t go with the new, but it really looked bad because it was old and getting pretty thread bare in several places. Continue reading “Upcoming Project: Ottoman Recover”
