Christmas Gift Idea.. Getting Crafty

Standard

If you’re like me… ME = Loves XMAS. Loves giving, BUT on a limited budget this year…

THEN

You, my friends, are in for a treat.

In order for this to work, I guess the need for a crafty person should be thrown in to the mix..

I saw this idea (and some other awesome ideas) at this blog.

I’m planning on making these calendars for gifts this Christmas!

To begin this wonderful creative and crafty journey, I headed to JoAnne Fabrics, but to my disappoint they only had four of the wooden cubes, and they were only an inch on each side. Grrrr

BUT, since I truly believe in making lemonade outta lemons, I decided to give it a go.

I ended up making these adorable (well, I think they’re adorable) cubes that have my God Daughter’s name and birth year on them.

So let me know what you think.

I’m going to order the wooden cubes online because I don’t think any of the craft stores near me sell them, but then I’m going to give these calendar ones ago.

No More Bare Walls… (almost)

Standard

My mom came to visit this past weekend and helped me pick up a few pieces for my walls.  Hooray!!!  I’ve lived in this house for almost 2 years and have hung nothing up. 

The main reason being money.. it’s expensive to decorate.  And now that I’ve finally got all the pieces of furniture that I want, I can work on accessorizing.  But I think I have a good start.  No more bare walls… almost.

(I just need to get my boyfriend to help me put some things up now haha)
