Got time for a quickie?

This is a cute little count down hanging plaque that I picked up at a close-out store. I just knew when I saw it that I would have to make a Christmas count down with it.IMG_6356
Well, I kept putting it off until today. Now that there’s only 10 days left. Why not?! I used Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps on it with some of Stampin’ Up!’s glass glitter, small jingle bells and some pretty ribbon.

I love it!
Thanks for stopping by. XO, Mimi

oH nO yOU dIDN’T!

Oh yes I did!
Look at this awesome beauty shop chair that I picked up at a local thrift shop.

Of course, I will have to re cover the loud colored cover.

This chair is sooooo comfortable and look at the foot rest! And, it goes low enough to be my new desk chair. But if I want to change a light bulb, it pumps up way high with the foot pedal.
Just kidding. It doesn’t go THAT high but it does go up real good.
I LOVE IT! You know you love it too!
Hope my hubby doesn’t divorce me over it.XO, MimiIMAG0235

The BEST crafting night EVER!

I had the most wonderful evening with my daughters, crafting. I don’t get my older daughter to craft often but since she has been pregnant, she has helped me create aprons and now, these miniature works of art.

I saw this post and I just knew that I had to make one. So, after taking my daughter to a doctors appt. we stopped at our favorite craft store so I could pick up some supplies. While there I asked her if she would be interested in playing too. I tried to contain my enthusiasm when she said she would love to.

I think they turned out magnificent. I love how different they all are even though we had the same table of supplies to work with.

Maggie’s is a manger scene with many, many birds on top. Katie’s is a forest scene with decorated trees and snowmen and has an angel that she made on top. Mine is a little house with trees, a sled, snowman, sheep and the girl is me. Lots of yummy glitter goodness.

Life is sweet. XO, Mimi
