Good morning everyone! It seems like FOREVER since my last post! I hope everyone had a GREAT Thanksgiving! I'm still trying to recover from eating so much hee hee! I didn't do any Black Friday shopping either I stayed home safe and sound in my bed this year lol! I can't believe Christmas is just around the corner and other than having my Christmas tree up I'm no where close to being ready eek!!!!
For todays project, (which I debated over and over if I should even show it hee hee) I got the inspiration from pinterest. I love trying to new things and putting my spin on it but then I start doubting myself and whether it looks better or worse than the original idea and that's where I'm at with this! Here's the picture of what I took my inspiration from (click here and be sure to scroll down) I think the one she made is soooo cute and mine doesn't even come close! But I will say this it was super simple, quick, and FUN! I ran up to our local Fred's and looked for the supplies to make this. They didn't have any gloves (other than black) so I started trying to look for another alternative and ran across this pair of socks which reminded me of a Santa hat. Instead of using a single bag of popcorn I used a box of candy. That was the only two items I had to purchase. I wrapped a piece of white cardstock around the box of candy and glued that. I took the face from the snowman on Doodlecharms (using my Gyspy I had to hide some parts) I glued the face parts to the front of the box. I added some chalk for the blush. I then rolled one of the socks and stuffed it inside the other one and slipped it over the top for the Santa hat. The ribbon is from my stash. I used a safety pin and a cotton ball to complete the Santa hat (I would have glued it but didn't want to ruin the socks hee hee so this way you can just unpin the cotton ball and the socks is unharmed!) Now, for the sentiment you KNOW no project is complete till you use one of Emma's awesome stamp sets! The Merry Christmas is from the Gift Card Sentiment stamp set. I will confess I did stamp it directly onto the cardstock but messed up and had to cut another piece to cover it up! So be SURE to stamp whatever you want before you glue your cardstock down!! (I always learn stuff the hard way hee hee)
Well, that's it for today! I'll see you back here tomorrow for day two!! Thanks for looking and I hope you have a wonderful day! Hugs, Leanne
