First Week of 2014 Recap!

 I ran to Target after church last week and was pleasantly surprised to find out that they still had Christmas Clearance items! I made out like a bandit in the dollar spot! I got this super cute pillow which was marked down to 90 cents!!
 They were also selling these glasses? Not sure why, apparently you only need to be hydrated at Christmas time? I bought 3 of them, 2 for makeup in my bedroom, and then I created this cute little pretty thing for my desk. Oh yes, and they were only 30 cents!
 After I created one pretty thing for my desk I decided to do more! So I grabbed this small little candle holder..
 And then I found a Mason Jar and rigged up this cute thing. I thought it looked very wintery and snow life!
 New Years Eve Day I was a busy busy girl! I had to run out and get craft supplies to finish Katie's Christmas gift. My Mom told me I should give E6000 Glue a try instead of my trusty glue gun (that I always burn myself on. Multiple times.) This was the warning on the back of the glue. I was not supposed to breathe it in, or eat or drink while using it. Creepy.
 The Finished product! I taught myself how to make sparkly monograms and made one for Katie and her hubs! I was pleased with how it turned out! Their grown up room is black, white and red, so I knew I wanted something to match those colors!
 I was really pleased with how it turned out!!!
 Continuing on my domestic diva day, I made Cookie Dough Fudge to bring to her house. It was SO good!!!
 I forgot to take a picture of the actual breadsticks, but I made a knock off of Olive Garden's famous breadsticks. They.Were.SO.SO.SO GOOD!!! I'm not skilled at making bread, so I was really proud of myself!! I had to smile when I realized I had wrapped my bread in towels to keep it warm, just like my Momma does!
 Thursday Audra and Cubbie were coming over for Dinner so I decided to mess around with my hair. Isn't it beautiful?!
 Juuuuussssttt kidding! I finger combed out the awkwardsauce curls!
 It was nice to do something a little different!
 The back just thrown together with bobby pins. Bobby Pins are my BFF. (Ignore the fact I was washing my bedding!
 I thought oh how pretty when I looked at this picture of myself. And then I uploaded it to my computer and saw just how dirty my mirror was. (IS) hahahahah oh awkward. I need to clean that!!
 Cubbie likes to snuggle on the couch with me, so he made himself comfortable and used my pillow for his head! HA!
This was taken earlier this morning. It's been snowing and snowing and snowing. We are approaching Blizzard conditions, and our temps are going to be around-18 to -20 the next few days. SO Thankful I do not have to go outside! Although i did not stock up on Coke so this could become a tad dire.
 Now that Christmas is over I can finally show this awesome present that I made for my bro and sil and my parents! It's my Grandparents wedding Picture, my parents, and my bro and sil's! And since Snugglemuffin and I are not married :) Just a cute picture of us together! The blue sign on the side was given to me from a Piano Family and it fit perfectly! This is on the top shelf of my TV Armoire.
 The script on the top is the verse that says "I have no greater joy than to know my children walk in truth" the verse underneath me and B is "Choose this day who you will serve, as for me and my house we will serve the Lord."
 I was holding this sign in my hand to try and hang it somewhere else and accidently set it on the side of the cabinet and was shocked it didn't move! Upon closer inspection I had little somethings that It was able to hang on!
 My New Years Eve Date. Joey Armstrong. :) Watching him get in and out of this costume was the most hilarious thing! Bless his heart!
I am in denial of how big he is! I also put shimmer on my cheeks which was an ill advised idea. Whoops. Sam Sam was my snuggle buddy all night, but I didn't get a picture with him :(
