Motivational Monday

How was your weekend? Mine flew by!! I feel like I say that almost every Monday, so I don’t really know why I am ever surprised by this realization… 😉

I did enjoy our Family Ugly Sweater Christmas Party… A few of us actually made our own tacky creations, and some just had some plain ol’ traditionally ugly sweaters lol.

I just love that Ugly Sweaters are becoming a sensation… it’s so much fun to see the different sweaters some people create! And it was actually a lovely weekend to wear a sweater… I was worried we’d literally be Sweating … thank The Lord that we weren’t!

I get a scripture sent to me by text from 89.3 KSBJ every Monday… today’s verse was Psalm 40:8, “God, I surrender my plans & desires to You. I want to obey Your will for my life. Show me the way so I can do Your will.” This verse was extremely motivating for me, because I felt a little worried and anxious about a few things this morning and then… When I read that scripture I was like Thank You for reminding me Lord, I do surrender my plans & desires to you once again today, and I do want to obey Your will for my life.

So instead of worrying, I’m watching and listening for guidance and direction. Thanks for the motivation Lord!

I’m finding some really cool links for planning my Spring Garden… which I hope to start planting in January… I’ll be sharing this info soon!

I just wanted to thank everyone that came out to the class last night! Myra and I had such a blast, you guys were such a joy to be around 🙂 …and special Thank You to Jeanie Fry who put the class together! She did a wonderful job creating a Christmas themed arrangement and teaching the gals how to create it in their own way!

We started the night with some amazing “Crack Dip” and Pineapple Pink Lemonade Party Punch…

Then we got our created juices flowing with “Bing Crosby Christmas CD” and guidance from the lovely Jeanie Fry of Blue Orchid Florals.

Jeanie provided vases with a “mercury look” that she created by spraying mirror paint onto the outer surface of the glass. Greenery was in abundance as we began to fill these cute little vases… the smell of Christmas was definitely in the air 😉

Tastefully elegant splashes of color were added by everyone… white & red roses, glittery sprigs, flowing grasses, and ribbon for bows!

Cheerful laughter drifted through the blissfully sweet air as the girls finished their florals… Talents ranged from a beginner to a seasoned florist, but that didn’t stop anyone from creating a beautiful masterpiece of their own.

Until Monday… We’ll be creating more Christmas-y beauty 🙂 You guys have a glorious weekend!

DIY: Repurposing old Mismatched Christmas Decor

So today Me and Myra pulled out all the old faithful Christmas decorations! …even the ones way wayy wayyyy back in the dusty cobweb filled corners of the attic 😉 Some were still in great shape, some were worn, and some were mismatched from everywhere there and back. We spent a little while sifting through the boxes and I realized we actually had a lot of great stuff to work with!

There are lots of cute Christmas trees ranging from small to large, round to traditional. Ornaments, garland and lights… So we decided to choose a color theme… and we went with silver to start 🙂 Silver pairs well with just about anything and it makes for a good backdrop for other colors…or glitter…or more Silver!

Here are a few things I played around with today… Oh my goodness y’all I can’t wait to get home and make room for my Christmas Tree and all the decorations I have inspiration for!!
