Happy New Year!!!! I hope that you had a wonderful Holiday season and that the new year brings a renewed sense of peace, love and joy to you all!!!!
As I'm sure occurs at your home, the holidays bring along with it so much craziness! i have been so swamped with "life" that the blog has had to sit on the back burner for a while. Sadly there just aren't always enough hours in the day to do everything you'd like.....But I'm back today with a super simple Simple Sunday project. I think this took me longer to gather my supplies than to actually make. And I am SO happy with the end result :)
I got this fabulous Mom Agenda desk planner for Christmas and while it is such a pretty color I felt it needed a little touch of personalization. So I dug out some chocolate chip decor elements and some self adhesive rhinestones and got to work. The decor elements were a little tricky to get to stick but once I managed to get them on there (with quite a bit of rubbing) they are stuck done really nicely. I love the look of the chocolate on the tangerine!!! Then I added just a few rhinestones to bling it up. I also took a little bit of stickles and put it on with a q-tip and then quickly wiped it off. What this did was leave just the barest hit of glitter along the edges of the flower with out over powering the flower. Then a simple run of ribbon along the binding of the cover with a few more rhinestones where the ribbon overlaps. Then to tie it all in I added some polka dot ribbon to the already existing white ribbon bookmark. LOVE!
We've got one more day of "vacation" before Elizabeth heads back to school on Monday. But happily it's only a few days then until we are off to FL for the annual Disney Marathon Weekend! I'm walking the half with my sister and my husband is running both the half and the full marathons! I can't wait!!! It's looking to be a little chilly but no where near as cold as it was last year. Chilly I can deal with *wink* and honestly anything is better than the snow covered ground were have here in NJ. As pretty as the snow is, and I really do love it, it just makes all the drivers on the roads go crazy or something. Just getting around town is enough to make you want to pull your hair out!! it's crazy!!!!
I hope that you had a wonderful holiday and I thank you for hanging around with me!!!! I've got lots more to share with you so hopefully you'll come back and visit soon!!! Until then, thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great one :)
