Bring on the Christmas Spirit

I have been busy decorating the studio for Christmas.

I had to have this when I saw it.


Peace is something I pray for everyday. We need more of it in this world.


I found these sliver sprays and snowflakes

at Hobby Lobby (1/2 off of course!)



I picked up the blue & silver balls from Wal-Mart.

They are plastic...so that means they

will last more than one Christmas in my house :)






I have a ton of these wreaths. I used to have a huge Christmas tree

and I would place these all over it.

It was beautiful.

The tree had seen better days and is now in that happy place in the sky.
(Well...more like Goodwill but you know what I mean.)

From Drop Cloth to Painted Rug

I had a wheelchair ramp built going into my house for my 6 yr old who is in a wheelchair. I have loved having it. He is getting so big that it was getting difficult to get him in & out of the house. This is so much easier!   Here's the problem:  It's ugly and my welcome mat/entry rug doesn't fit! No bueno!!   I looked for a rug that would fit but didn't want to spend a lot of money on it. So...I decided to make my own.   I got a canvas drop cloth from Lowe's for just under $10.00.    I gave it a good ironing to get the creases out.   I had some white house paint from another project and painted the drop cloth. (Tip: Even though this is a drop cloth the paint soaked through to the backside. I put a plastic drop cloth under it to protect my table.)   Then I stenciled it.  I was going to do a different pattern and transfer it on to the drop cloth but I already had the stencil and let's face it...
