A Crafter I Am Not

What do you do when you have a pushy daughter who is relentless in her efforts to make you step outside your comfort zone?

A) Start a blog

B) Join a Bunco group

C) Participate in a craft swap

D) All of the above!

If you chose D, you are exactly right! And I'm glad I did all these things. Thanks, Lauren!

Here are the ornaments I made with my own two little hands for the craft swap my daughter started. I take no credit for the idea....got that off Pinterest. Twelve ornaments cost me about $5. The wood was free--thanks, Lowes! The scrapbook paper was 40% off at Hobby Lobby and I just printed off the words. The original post used wire, but I already had twine and being the cheap frugal gal I am, I used that. But, of course, I couldn't leave well enough alone, so had to add a little bling bling to the mix. Back to Hobby Lobby for some sparkly do-dads and voila!


Can't wait to see what the other participants have made!

OMGosh, these are the ornaments I made for Lauren's Christmas Exchange Party! HAHA! Great minds think alike! I didn't jazz them up at all. But I did rip around the edges to make most of them look more rustic. That was my own personal touch. I try to do something fresh from my own head when I do pintrest things to not be a total Drone! =)
