Organizing the Pantry
5 hours ago
Yesterday I decided it was time to create so I whipped up this paper tree. I have made paper
trees that are round , but haven't made any square ones until I made this one and I love it!
I have cut tons of round circles in the past and now I am cutting tons of squares! :)
I added a tiny vintage ornament for the tree topper along with some glass glitter and she
I did have a blooper along the way though. I thought it would be so cute with a white
porcelain doorknob as the base so I glued it in and guess what? It just rocked and rolled all
over the counter...rocked and rolled and rolled! I could not get her to sit up straight for me
She is now dubbed my "ROCK AND ROLL TREE".
On to plan B...which was sitting the doorknob in a vintage silver
creamer. I can't get her out of the door knob unless I ruin it in the process.
Hubby says to put something on the bottom of the knob so she will set up straight,
but I haven't accomplished that yet. :)
I am working on another white tree, but she isn't quite finished yet. She looks much
different being all white and shorter. Each one is unique and fun to make.
Are you ready for Christmas?
I am not ready.
Hubby's work being the only income in our family for the most part, and him losing his job
has thrown a kink in some of our plans.
Please pray with me that he will find a new job soon. This isn't just a lay off and back
to work...they closed the plant. No warning. Wonderful Christmas present eh? Just
makes a person wonder. To top it off...I don't get near as much done during
the day now with him home and the man thinks he needs to eat at lunch time.
What in the world is up with that??
