Merry Christmas…it was 75 today! It actually felt like July, you know minus the suffocating humidity!
Look! I was crafty. I know I can’t believe it either! It’s a little hard to see in that picture above,but there is actually two different kinds of paper (well three if you count the background). I used sticky backed scrapbooking paper with a print on it and then had the green and red as a shadow effect on top.
Then…I took a brown paper grocery bag and painted it a shimmery silver color and put the letters on top.
To attach the letters to my twine (which you can’t see) I used paper clips. Hey! I’m being resourceful!
After I did that I took some red ribbon and interwove it between the letters.
And hey! Now I have a festive Christmas banner!
Oh, and just to brag, I found my Christmas tree at Target for $20! Go. Me!
I think I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel for my Masters, either that or it’s a train coming to run me over. I’m hoping it’s a good thing. 😉 I only have one more day of class and my research paper is due on the 15th….soooooo close!
What have you been doing to get yourself into the Christmas spirit?
Me? I’ve got Pandora’s Christmas station on full blast right now…it works!
