21 Days to Getting Organized!

Over at A Bowl Full of Lemons, she is having a 21 days to getting organized challenge. Like most people around New Years, I try to set a resolution to get more organized. So, I wanted to join in on this challenge! I've actually started doing some organization in my home, so if something comes up that I've already done, I may skip that day. I'm excited for this challenge, honestly! I would love to be more organized than I am. If you would like to join, too, head on over to A Bowl Full of Lemons and let her know you are joining the challenge!

Christmas Subway Art

 You know how I love subway art! Well, here is my Christmas one!
 I love the swirly tree!

 I ended up putting glitter on the snowflakes to help them stand out more

Sorry the pictures aren't great. I really need to start trying to take the pictures during the day instead of after my daughter goes to bed. :)

Christmas Wreath

I saw this wreath on Tatertots & Jello, and I really wanted to make it! I decided to go with more traditional Christmas colors, so I did the red, green, and added some silver. I started out the way it said, to hot glue the stuff onto the wire form. However, I wasn't as careful as I should have been and when I had a little of it done, I burned my finger pretty bad! The glue dripped down onto my finger. My husband decided the best thing was to put ice on it, and I sat there for 45 min. with ice on my fingers, and they were still throbbing after that. I decided that I was going to wrap the wire form in fabric. I ended up pulling all the stuff off that I had previously glued on.  I then cut some red fabric into strips and wrapped. While I wrapped, I hot glued the fabric down. Then I started the process over. It isn't perfect, but it's good enough for now. :)

Sorry I was a little MIA. My daughter was sick for a little bit, and then I got it. My husband and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary on Dec. 8th! I can't believe we've been married for 3 years! He is wonderful and is pretty good about all my crafting. :)
