‘Tis the season

for decorating, gift making, and continuing to make things you find on Pinterest. 
I recently discovered deco mesh for wreath making, and I had pinned some candy cane wreaths on Pinterest but wasn’t sure where to find one, but shopping your small businesses pays off!  My cousin owns a shop in Northern Florida called Sunsations, and there is was! So now it graces my mantel……
And at my office is a Clemson Christmas Tree…..
So do you every have that friend that some years it is easy to buy for and other years it is impossible to get an idea?  Well I had that dilemma this year, but finally the idea hit me.  So I made her present, and make some from me as well.  And just for the record the gift giving industry is missing a HUGE market with not making Scrabble designed wine glasses. I guess it is just me and my bf that drink wine and play Scrabble :)
Since there was no where to purchase Scrabble wine glasses I decided to make my own.  I tried to do diy rub on transfers and that was a huge fiasco!  So I went back to my original idea of etching tiles with our initials on them.  What do you think?
I’m helping with a huge National Conference in July 2012, I’m in charge of the table decorations and several other areas.  My idea is Burlap and Lace and there are some of the vases I plan on using.  I’m looking for thicker to burlap to really pop against the mason jar.  Love the lace ribbon!

I squeezed in a little time to cross stitch!  I haven't cut it out yet but I love this little ornament!

And Clemson is headed to the Orange Bowl!
