So, this just happened!

I guess the Shopkins beer episode was inspiring?

Air Fresheners Anonymous

  • Pine-scented
  • Not in need of new air fresheners for months (unless I find a new scent!)
The first step in curing your addiction is admitting you have a problem. I wouldn't call this a problem...I call it Christmassy Delicious!

Christmas all day, errr' day!

So, I guess by now you've realized that I'm slightly fixated on Christmas....You THINK you know, but you have no idea! Sure, my crafting is 98% Christmas-themed, but my LIFE is at least 30% Christmassy on a daily basis! Probably more.

Coffee mugs? Yeah, I have about 20 and most of them are Christmas mugs. Potholders? Yup, snowman-themed. PJs? Forget about it!! About 80% of my PJs are covered in snowmen, snowflakes, reindeer, crazy get the picture. Socks? Yup, 95% of those are Christmas socks. Pictured above is my dearly departed doggie modeling a pair of my snazzy socks.

I've also worked the theme into my kid's fricken NAME!!! Yeah that's right, her middle name is "Noelle" which is bloody gorgeous in my opinion...and Christmassy! My husband Jaime even has a Christmassy surname (in my opinion) - REYES! Ya know, like the 3 Kings? lol. And lastly, I have decided that my middle name sounds suspiciously like the activity that those people do, singing from door to door every Christmas - Carolyn (CAROLING!!!). I was destined for the Christmas Life!

I didn't choose the Christmas-crazy life, the Christmas-crazy life chose ME! Hahaha.

I ALMOST started making ornaments last night, but..

~OrnaMENTAL Status~
  • Beer-buzzed
  • Finally, inspiration has hit! I thought I was going to be doing Christmas Piggies, but NAH! Stay tuned to see what I will do instead! P.S. it's not Shopkins. This little sucker just happened to infiltrate my beer bottle last night.

I finally got inspired for this year's craft foam Christmas ornaments, and was planning on making the templates last night but then my husband gave me a beer and I got sidetracked lol! So instead of ornament template pics, this is all I have to offer...

Tuesday Time Travel to Christmas 2015

~OrnaMENTAL Status~
  • Pro-wrestler procrastination
  • An actual damn HURRICANE passed over Belize but all craft supplies are safe and dry...and untouched bwahahaha

Ok, so it's already August and not a piece of craft foam has budged from its storage box. MEH!!! Here I go again, trying to inspire myself with a flashback to last year's creations.

Sophia stands ready to swipe everything off the table.

Assembly line! Who needs elves? Not me!! Unless house-cleaning, litter-scooping elves exist, cuz then I'll take 3!

Starting to look more like reindeer now, and less like poo-shaped pears with antlers!
