Happy Tuesday everyone Two more weeks to go before Christmas. Last weekend we put up our tree and changed the table decor ( there you can see my Christmas candles).
Our first Christmas at our new place!
I'm sharing my cup of green tea with Elizabeth at T Stands for Tuesday
The book I want to share with you is Joel Osteen's "Daily Readings from Your Best Life Now". This is my second book by Osteen. I loved his "Your Best Life Now for Moms". I love books and speeches that are filled with positive notes. I feel there is always something good that we can attain from them.
Dear Dawn, you were so much in my thoughts when I started reading this book. I know you enjoy these kind of books-:)
Hand made watercolor cards. The snowmen cards are from last to last year. They are a favorite of mine. They are the prints of my original watercolor snow man paintings. I'm planning to get more new prints from some of my recent paintings.
Do you have a favorite here?
I clicked this picture of our tree yesterday night.
On the side there are more Christmas decorations. That lovely Santa was a gift from one of our old neighbors.
We have two new members in our home now. The children had been asking for an aquarium for a long time. So, here is one of our cute little fish-:)
Now let me share with you an upcycled project that I did some time ago. When we moved, I was badly in need of some storage space for keeping my paper supplies. Cash was short-:) so I was on the lookout for converting some thing that I already had. This cardboard box in which we buy drinking water gave me an idea.
I covered the outer sides with pattern paper and modpodge. I mainly used tons of scraps that was in my stash, which otherwise would have been still sitting there.
I also adhered the partition that was in the middleof the box with pretty paper.
The paper layer and modpodge made the box even more strong. It was a quick project that just took me less that 2 hours.
Im so happy with the box. It can carry almost all my paper supply and rests under my craft table.
Sorry for the long post. Hope to visit everyone at 'T' today
Have a great week
