Oh Christmas Tree, oh Christmas Tree...

I have been a very bad blogger.  Work and the Holidays have taken me away!  While I'm on my  mini blog vacation, take a look at this crafty blog a fellow Punkymom posted!

Skull Ornaments

Do you remember this post?  Well I have successfully completed four skull ornaments for our tree so far...
Take a look!

The skulls are all cut out from material I already had, then hand sewn with a contrasting back piece of material, stuffed and finished off with a loop.  They are so fun, I want to make more!

Salads continued...

Do you remember this post about Artistic Salads?  Well, I found some wonderful prints of a clients in the office I work at.  They are vintage, vegetable themed and I just had to share them with you!

and this is my favorite!

Here it is!

The Christmas wreath I made for hubby's truck in place.... 
I think it looks great!  What do you think?

Christmas Wreaths

It's beginning to look allot like Christmas at our house!  I've been busy putting up the tree & crafting Christmas Decor which left me with no time for blogging until now!

Last night I made some Christmas Wreaths from some $1.50 green wreaths I bought at the thrift store on the corner...

This one is for the front door, I used an ornament I picked up at the Cookie Decorating Party this weekend from the lovely Blue and some ornate ribbon I bought at a doll show last year, with some ornaments from our tree!

I also made a wreath for the front of my husband's truck, per his request!  I'll  update with a picture on the truck after he hangs it...

Meanwhile, HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!!  Hope your homes are filling with cheer.

Artistic Salads

I'm sitting here eating a very lovely tostada salad from Baja Burrito Kitchen and started thinking about beautiful salads.  That's right, salads can be pretty too!  Here's some I found:

Bruno Munari, Roses in the salad, 1983

And this is just plan scary!

Winter Wonderland Shopping

A ribbon fashion necklace

Fleece Scarf

Fleece Hat

...and THIS is actually something I did make at the last craft night with my gal pals:
