Merry Christmas To All..........

and to all a good night!!  The retail insanity has just a couple of days left.  Then sleep will come.  For those of you who have ever worked retail you know how it goes. 

I would just like to take this time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and thanks so much for all the kind words and praise.  It means so much.

I leave you with a photo of my Christmas tree in all its nighttime glory!!!!

Itty Bitty Sheet Music Trees

A couple of weeks ago before the open house at "Not so Shabby", I made some large sheet music trees following the tutorial on  I loved how they turned out!!  And they were quite a bit of work but easy.......just labor intensive!!

When I was working in my booth last week, a customer requested that I make some small (like 5-6" tall) sheet music trees to use in homemade snow globes.  So I thought, why not, I can do this!  I made my own cones out of a cereal box.  I then followed the same method for making the larger trees.  When I was done I glued either a star or a small bead on the top.  I also used some glitter glue to embellish a few of the "branches".  And yes, they are for sale in my booth but I had to photograph them next to the church in my Christmas village.

So, so cute!!
