Floridians on Ice!

This past Tuesday, we went ice skating! It comes every year, and during the summer as well. Obviously it's inside! I think Blake was a little nervous before we got there, and I kind of was as well. I've only ever roller skated, and not with roller blades. A couple of times around the wall and they were off!

I hope you have a Happy New Year!!

Christmas Crafts

I really havent been doing to much craft or project-wise lately. But when I saw the Eddie Ross wreath that's floating around, I knew I wanted to make it! I got my ornaments the other week at Target when they were buy 2, get 1 free. I wanted the blue & silver packages, but they were gone, so I went with the bright mult-colors. I'm not really a red & green girl.

But, in true Wendy fashion, it's not finished. It's been in this state for about 2 weeks. As you can see, I've got some spots to fill in. I think I'm just going to hot glue some in place. I'm not really interested in redoing the whole thing!
And the top isnt done. I havent decided if I should do the ribbon like he did? Or just try & hide that hook? What do you think? AND - if I do the ribbon - what color?!

These were started last year. They sat around in my craft area all year long, but I finally decided to have the kids finish them. They are foam balls, covered in toothpicks. I then spray painted them white. The kids went in with a paint brush and added the color of their choice. Then, while the paint was wet, I added glitter. I couldnt really get a shot of them sparkling, but trust me, they do!

They ended up pretty big, so instead of hanging them, we just stuck them in the tree!

I had plans of making Layla a hair clip holder, but I'm not sure it's going to happen. I found some awesome deals on clips at Claire's, they had been having a bunch of stuff on clearance, and when you bought 10 (they also did 12!) they were $1.00 each. She loves her hair clips, so we stocked up.
But besides that, I am ALMOST done shopping. All I have left is one gift card, and I'm getting that today. Now if I could just get the kids to sleep early so I can finish wrapping!

Under Our Tree....

Yep, thats spray paint!

Ornament Swap Revealed!

I havent heard back from my swap partner, so I'm going to assume she got these already, and go ahead and share. I couldnt decide on one ornament, so I sent two! I really hope she liked them!

Sorry for my lack of posting - things have been busy. Soccer is over, dance is taking a winter break, and Christmas is almost here! Are you ready? I'm ALMOST done, and about halfway done wrapping. Ive still got a ton of baking to do. I have some things Ive wanted to share on here, but it gets dark so soon, it's hard to get decent pics while there is still light out! Im going to try & post again by this weekend though. Have a good one!

Ornament Swap Received!

I've been meaning to post about this, but somehow I never got around to it. I received my ornament from my swap partner! Its very cute, thank you!!

Speaking of ornaments, I made more of these soccer gingerbread cookie ornaments for this years soccer team. We had our last game last week and we supposed to have an ice cream party at this little shop down the road this Saturday. You sit outside here, no cover really, only little umbrellas, and of course, it was cold & rainy! I gave these to the coach to pass out, hopefully everyone gets theirs.

Nothing else really too exciting to post about. I havent been working on any projects really, although I do have my ornaments hot glued and my wire hanger bent, ready to work on that Eddie Ross wreath that's been floating around the blog world. Have a good week!
