packing up christmas & a little project

after getting home from my parents’ and unpacking everything, the mood struck to pack up christmas – so i went with it! it took only a few minutes to undo it all. why does it take so long to put up? i still all looks so pretty, even in a pile! putting it all back in the boxes was fun too, because i was able to reorganize and pack it all away so nicely for next year.

so here’s the little project. its a bit messy as you can see. 1st step: grab the nearest 4 year old. mine happened to be sitting on my bed watching a movie. step 2: make sure baby and toddler are fast asleep. step 3: get wooden candle sticks, craft glue, paint brush, and glitter. step 4: apply glue in sections and sprinkle glitter. repeat until covered. i recommend using the superfine glitter rather than regular. the pink was with the superfine and red with regular.

just in time for valentine’s day crafting! (wow! its not even new years yet!)

    I just saw that in the Martha Stewart mag! Well done. I decided to make some frosted glass vases with stars on them (same magazine issue)!
