Save Thanksgiving!


source

Yes, let us save Thanksgiving.  After all, it is the holiday where we stop and says thanks for the blessings in our lives.  I am with Nordstrom, take it one holiday at a time.  Why the rush for Christmas already?  Actually that is a question that I asked back in August when I first saw the Christmas decorations on store shelves.  Really?

It irks me that Thanksgiving is pretty much skipped over and that most, if not all, autumn and Thanksgiving merchandise is already on clearance.  The only good thing about that is that you can get your turkey and fall leaf decor at a great price.  I mean, again, Thanksgiving is about being thankful for many reasons and retailers are telling us to ignore it and concentrate on Santa.  Oh that's another pet peeve of mine.  Retailers shove Christmas down your throat starting in late summer yet quickly shut'er down come December 26.  Wrong.  Christmas is not over until January 6th.  That is when I stop celebrating and then take my tree down on January 7th.

I know I am not the only that is irked and bother by this.  RespecttheBird on Twitter even started the appropriate hashtag #savethanksgiving.  The radio station 105.1 Jack FM out of Kansas has also started their own coalition.  Good for them! Really, I can't be the only one that feels this way.  Yes, I have started my Christmas shopping but not the decorating.  It is not time.  I am still enjoying my pumpkins, fall leaves and all things turkey decor and food.  I am saving Thanksgiving.  Who's with me?  :)

Glass Vase Snowman Decor {Craft DIY}

Hello peeps!  Who is still stuffed from all of the Thanksgiving deliciousness?  Or broke from those fab after-Thanksgiving sales?  I don't do the whole crazy shopping thing but I am stuffed and happy.  I got to watch lots of t.v. and in my jammies.  Woot!  

On to my latest project, except I made this last year so I'm kinda lying.  I never got to share this with you guys because of lots of computer problems.  Anywho, I made a snowman using two floral vases.



I was inspired to make this snowman after I saw another blogger make with decor with round floral vases.  She used different glitter for each vase and then topped each one with a witch hat.  It was classy and cute.  And darn.  I wish I could remember that blogger and her site. 
Well here is how I got down to business when making this snowman.

Supplies:
2 - round floral vases 1 - sponge brush Mod Podge 1 - small jar of white glitter 2 - sheets black felt w/glitter scissors craft or felt glue 2 - lids from food canisters (like oatmeal) …

Easter Egg and Vase Decor {Craft DIY}

Happy Good Friday lovely people.  Easter is my favorite holiday and sadly I haven't decorated much for this Holy celebration.  I have been so busy (I'm always saying that!) and I won't dare go up in the attic to get my decorations.  The attic freaks me out so I always send the hubby to get my things; although he too is a very busy man this tax season.  Anywho, I started this craft project a few weeks ago and just finished it this morning.  Seriously.



Organizing da Hair Accessories

Before my daughter was born it was just the hubby, our boy and me.  I only had me to worry about when it came to all things hair.  Then baby girl came along and little by little the hair accessories, combs, brushes and everything else started to pile up and take over my middle bathroom drawer.  Up until a couple of weeks ago my hair accessory drawer looked like this:


It was so bad and I couldn't stand it any longer.  Actually it had been quite some time that I could not stand but I finally got around to organizing it.  While still on holiday vacation in early January, the kids and I took a field trip to The Container Store.  One of my new favorite stores.  Love!

After browsing, browsing, browsing and more browsing I finally got down to business.  Mainly because the kids were getting restless otherwise I could have spent the whole day there and compiled a huge wish list.  I came home with some Linus drawer organizers and after a major make-over our hair accessories bathroom drawer lo…
