I had the best week off last week! I’m sure you all had fun with family and ate lots of food like I did, but I bet you didn’t have as much fun crafting as I did.
The day after Thanksgiving I stayed at my mom’s house and she helped me make stockings. When my son got married, I felt bad that my new daughter-in-law didn’t have a matching stocking at Christmas. Three years later, I finally got them made! I saw some on Pinterest that I liked, and decided to tweak it a bit to suit my decor. I just wish I had gotten bigger letters. Here is how it turned out…
I made them out of burlap and even made a lining for them out of muslin. I painted my family’s initials in red, then mod podged some glitter on them, and then tied them on with some pretty ribbon. Pretty cute, huh?
I got my wreath made (also a Pinterest find) and think it looks fabulous!
Yes, I glitted the K initial too! Love that bright green!
And then I finally got the courage to paint a canvas like I saw here:
I decided to paint mine with a deep red background to go with my new stockings. I think it turned out quite nice.
And here is a picture of me “in process”. My husband took a picture and scared me…glad it didn’t make me mess up!
So today I go back to work on this Marvelous Monday. (sigh…I declare it to be so!) I’m thankful for the time I’ve had to rest, recuperate, and rejuvenate over the last week and I hope to live the week fresh, happy, and strong. Whatever I do I pray I glorify my LORD.
Have a Marvelous Monday!
