All in a day off

It was mostly a very lazy day off yesterday. I took my good old sweet time lounging in my pajamas drinking coffee and reading blogs.

Once I got myself dressed I did some playing in the craft room. I know it sounds pretty early for this but I decided that I wanted to make my Christmas cards this year. I got some supplies together and had some fun.

When I was done with that I layed down on the couch and took a nap. That was followed by a trip to Walmart for dog food and a few groceries.

I think every road leading in/out of the small town I live in is currently under construction. There's no escaping it.

Do over

Sometimes in life you do get to have a do over. A second chance to get things right or make different choices.

I showed you this charger a while back that I had painted. My plan was to put a quote on it in black vinyl but the more I looked at it the more I just didn't like it.

With the help of a can of spray paint I got a do over. After spraying two coats of this tan color and letting it dry, I sanded off the edges and over the little bumps around the edge.

Then I cut my vinyl and applied it to the charger

After setting the charger in a small easel I simply laid the fall picks in front of it. They aren't permanently attached that way I can change it with the seasons.

Now if I could only get a do over on my days off. I could use a few more of them.

A whole lot of nothing

Yesterday after a slow start I headed out the door to get my glasses fixed. A week or so ago one of the leses fell out and I couldn't find the screw anywhere. The only reason it took me so long to go get them fixed is because it's a bit of a drive and I just haven't felt like going.

If I'm going to take the 30 minute drive I may as well make it worth the trip and I stop at Michaels, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby and a couple other stores I only go to when I'm over that way. A.C. Moore is inside the mall and while I was in there it started pouring. Rather than go out in the rain I figured I would walk through the mall until it let up.

With all the stores I went to I came home with only 1 thing.

Best of all I didn't even pay for it. This was absolutely free. While I was browsing through Yankee Candle the clerk told me to make sure to get my free car jar before I left. They were giving them out to everyone, no purchase required.

What a pig

A while back Sandra tagged me in a post on Facebook. It was a picture of a cake and when I saw it I knew I had to try and make it for my sons fiance. Her birthday was yesterday so I took this over to her.

Mine isn't exactly like the picture Sandra posted on Facebook but it's close enough. The one I copied was a taller cake and it had a bow on top of it. This was my first attempt at using fondant. We don't use it at the store so I had to go buy some to use for this. Too bad you can't see his curly little tail on the back side. I wasn't completely happy with the eyes, I wished I would have used a smaller tip but they are what they are.
