Easy Peasy Banner!



Happy Monday from a Virginia Winter wonderland! We had a foot of snow over the week end! Oh my, Micah and I sure had fun in the snow!And speaking of snow... See my snowman banner? I just took all my snowmen cards that I've saved and clipped them onto this snowflake garland with these snowman clips!
I knotted the ends and stuck ornament hangers through them and then hung it up on my computer room valance. Easy peasy!
I wanted it to hang uneven like icicles and it turned out just the way I wanted it too! NOT ALL projects end up so!
My kitty was distracting me by wanting to go in and out! Silly kitty!
I was given another vintage card this Christmas so come back tomorrow and I'll share it with you!

Good Morning Sweet Friend...
I had to stop in and say hi for my Holly of the day. Hope your morning is going well so far.

I love the garland, it looks so festive, and ofcourse I am lovin the snowmen. My gosh how fun is that? I especially love kitty playing through the window. In and Out, In and Out. That is what they like to do. Very beautiful kitty though.

I pray everything is good for you and your family. I think of you every day. Have a beautiful day sweetie. Country hugs and so much love...Sherry

Hi Holly, Merry Christmas! Are you staying cozy? I'm living in pajamas and eating cookies and coffee for breakfast! Thank goodness this season doesn't last or I'd weigh 200lbs. lol. Ive had to put our kittens in the boys bathroom, they have been naughty.

What a cute idea Holly. It definately pays to hold on to old birthday, Christmas and other greeting cards as you just never know what creative and fun ideas a person could come up with to recycle them and use them in a different way so they can still be enjoyed for a long time to come. Glad to hear you've been having fun in that snow. Minnesota is in for more later this week and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it won't make driving too bad for getting around town to spend Christmas with my family.
