It´s beginning to look a lot like christmas....

Well...maybe not...but yesterday it started snowing again.  Tonight I made my first christmas card for this christmas. It is really simple but I love how it turned out. 
I used my favorite snowflake stamp (Stamping Up) and Tim Holtz distress inks to stamp the flakes(watercolor style) on white cardstock.  Used a blending tool to ink the edges. Matted on chocolate cardstock and put onto an easel card. Decorated with my favorite snowflake and border punch (Martha Stewart), a ribbon, glass bead and a sentiment stamp (says Happy holidays). 

Are you getting into the christmas cards mood?

Life's rollercoster

Oh my goodness, its been months since I posted something. We had a water leak and had to move out of the appartment for FOUR weeks! yikes! But we are back. Still loads to do but I can finally sleep in my own bed :)

We needed to completely renovate our laundry room and finally today we have both washer and dryer up and running after SIX weeks without them. Today I am LOVING doing the never thought that could ever happen to me! 

With all these constructions and renovation I feel like I need to do little changes here and there in the apartment. If I can't work in the laundry room, it's logical to just attack the living room :Þ 

Armed with a white spray can I have altered my old chandelier. I still need a few more chrystals to put around the candles, but this will have to do, until I find something I can work with. Hopefully I can find something perfect when the holiday decors hit the stores.
