More Crafts

A certain special someone has been gone all day at work (he won't be home until about 1 AM--- I married a hard worker) so I decided I was going to do a little craft. I have lots of time on my hands when I have NO work and NO school and NO husband. Not to mention, NO kids. Eddie gave me some horse head hooks for christmas, and I have been needing some way to hang my necklaces so they don't get all tangled. So I decided to make the following:

I need to tell you that I didn't notice how "rustic" it would look (with the chicken wire and horse heads and all) until I was almost done with it. I wondered how I wouldn't pick up on this earlier, but then I remembered that I spent about 5 years in 4-H while I was growing up. Long enough to even hold an office--- I think I was the VP? And I was a happy child. I had horses and rabbits. And I'm getting chickens in the spring!! But not with 4-H. I'm in my 20's. That's RIDICULOUS!

Also, I realized it doesn't hold much jewelry. Where am I going to put my young women's medallion and fake peals I got when I was 10??

Christmas Time!

Here is ALL of my christmas decor, literally, ALL of it.

Craft time with Bree! I made this at work. I'm a GREAT employee.

My Mom made these for me! She's amazing.

Borrowed this tree from my in-laws. I made the garland, with the intent of buying a small tree. But then Eddie's parents let us use there HUGE tree, so here is my little garland obviously not fitting on our big tree.

Did You Just Say That??

I'm going to say something shocking. Its something that no ones going to believe, so I'm just going to say it. Ready? THE CHRISTMAS BAKED GOODS THING HAS TO GO! I'm not saying I don't appreciate it, I really do. I really appreciate it. Thats the problem. People bring me some baked goodies, and I want to eat it all before it goes bad. So here I am, trying to eat all the baked goods my lovies bring me before they go bad. You know what this is a recipe for? A girls feeling like shes going to BARF. Because I don't eat anything else! I just try to eat all the yummy things. And, trust me, it hurts to see it thrown away. Thats what makes me sick really quick. And I contributed! Next year, its official, I'm not giving anyone anything with sugar. I'm coming up with another little gift.

I was noticing...Ikea is the only place I've seen thats actually lowering instead of raising prices because of the economy. I think thats really cool. They think about us. They think "Oh, things out there are not so good. Lets lower the prices so they can afford our kind of junky furniture." I prefer that to "we're not making as much money as we used to so lets raise our prices." Because then no one shops there. I really think ikea is pretty great, partly because the sell meatballs.

Oh look at me---being all concerned with the status of our nations economy...This is coming from someone who really doesn't understand our voting system (and doesn't even care to figure it out).

Heidi and the Headband

At my everson family reunion, my really hot cousin, Heidi Haglund, and my photographer cousin Jefra Linn, took some pictures for me of my headband. Here was my thought process-- I need to stop taking pictures with my camera phone. So my first option is to take pictures with my real camera, except remember how I said my battery died? Well I wish my battery was dead. I wish I had a battery to die! I thought the reason it wouldn't turn on was because the battery was dead. Turns out the battery fell out and I have no idea where. So then I just had my lovey couz take some for me. Now are you going to expect this of me every time? Professional pictures...
Here's my headband.
