Would you believe it..
I sit here with fuzzy socks, wrapped up in a comfy blanket, sipping hot pumpkin spice coffee and I am trying to fight off another head cold.
Michelle brought a cold home with her from Holland.
Sally was sick with it last weekend..
and well, Mom as usual, didn't escape the colds wrath.
It's no biggie.
Meanwhile, while I am too lazy to do anything else
I figured that I should get a head start on some blog posts.
They've hiked up my hours at Michaels.. which will limit my blog time this week.
Next weekend is the Harvest festival that I am working.
This year, I didn't make many seasonal crafts..
but I did make a lot of Raven's themed stuff and I made over a bunch of things that I already had.
Around here.. football fans are crazy about their Ravens,
so I made a bunch of these Raven Pom Pom Gloves.
Raven's stuff always sells!
See my pretty orange and white polka dot cardigan..
Picked it up at Target last week. Loooove it!
More Raven's ..
Debra, the amazing floral designer at my store made some of these pumpkins,
and I just copied her idea and then added some peat moss and a raven to the top.
I bought this cabinet a few years ago at the goodwill.
It was the perfect spice cabinet and I always had a vision for it but never did anything to it.
After sitting in the basement for the past year,
I decided to finally fix it up and get rid of it.
Chickens.. everybody loves chickens.
How do you like that mess in the background.. yep, it's still there.
You can't have chickens without some chicken wire!
Lots of staples, hot glue and rafia to finish it off.
I am not to crazy about that tall chicken.. but the overall project turned out ok.
What was I thinking?
After many coats of paint,
I finally got to the fun part of embellishing.
First the base.
And then the lamp shade.
I hot glued pretty ribbon around the base.
I don't know if it will sell, it's a little early for a Christmas lamp...
but it's sooo cute.
That is some of the things that I've been doing.
I usually do pretty well at this fall festival.
I hope that I made good choices this year because any profits that I make are going toward a special girlfriend trip that I have coming up.
What about you all.. What are you doing on this sunny Monday?
