Well, today was supposed to been one of those days where I got alot accomplished, but you guessed it. I had several other things I had to do first, and next thing I knew it was time to start dinner. I had to go down to my dads to meet with nurse, they are discontinuing the nurse coming to the house and took out his pickline today. So I guess, we will have to take him to hospital once a week to get his blood checked. Then his hemotologist called and told him he needed to admit himself to the hospital, he was still anemic. He refused to go, so I guess we will see how it all works out.
I had planned on having my elf wreaths finished. I managed to get 5 heads done, 2 still need hats. I have to stain and distress them tomorrow. The striped fabric is some that I found at Joann's Fabric years ago for a $1.00 a yard on the clearance table, and of course I don't have much left, so may have to change the color of their hats.
What the finished wreaths will look like.
Next, I found these wooden hangers at a show for a $1.00 a piece a couple of years ago and never did use them. I painted these black and sanded them down. Added a little sprig of greenery and berries. I found 3 of my red ticking stockings in my stash of to-do projects and put them together with the wood hanger. I still need to get some sweet Annie and fill the stockings up closer to the show and put a prim tag on each of the stockings.
These trees sold like crazy last year, I had some old vintage coffee cans and tucked the trees down into the cans and added moss around the tree. Last year, I sprayed the trees with spray adhesive and then sprinkled on mica flakes and couldn't keep them in stock. I also added a vintage tag. This year instead of using mica flakes, I had some of the snow that you spray in a can, and sprayed the tree pretty heavy with the snow. I added a few red berries here and there. Be sure to leave it outside in the hot sun to dry.
I got a couple of doll orders today for Christmas dolls, and better get started on them. I hope everyone is enjoying our Christmas in July. I will adding some free patterns shortly and having another giveaway. A big thank you for everyone commenting and reading my blog.
