Shabby Chic Christmas Decorating

The crazy life never stops at this house. I did have a tough time with McKale not sleeping again, but last night and the night before he slept through the night! Too bad my body is so used to getting up with him that I couldn't sleep. Praying he continues this pattern so we can get back to a somewhat "normal" schedule.
I'm still working on things for the upcoming occasional sale on Dec. 4th at Robyn's Nest in Brandon. I've made wreaths, ornaments, stockings, 5 re purposed chalkboards and I am hoping to get a few fairy dolls done this week. I will also have some handmade jewelry, vintage Christmas decor and my shabby chic items. If you are from the Sioux Falls area I hope you can make it. DETAILS (Saturday, December 4 · 9:00am - 4:00pm 48077 265th Street, Brandon, SD).
Here are some pictures of the shabby chic Christmas decorating I started. My house is still such a mess. I want to clean, but with this show coming up I need to get my projects and inventory ready. Maybe next week? LOL Have a good one!

Fun Crumpled Paper Wreaths

I am so sorry...I've been missing in action for almost a month. I have been busy with life, kids and trying to knock out projects for Nov. and Dec. occasional sales. I have also just been so tired. McKale is now 19 months and still not sleeping through the night...he wants to sleep in our bed, so I get so little sleep. Not to complain...I am trying to enjoy my time with him as he is the last baby in our family!
I wanted to share a little project I've been working on. I see so many paper wreaths out there...I wanted to do something a little different. I am always making crumpled paper I thought I would try a crumpled paper wreath. It turned out so great that I made another one. I love how they turned out. I think they are so different. I will be bringing some to the Dec. 4th occasional sale at Robyn's nest in Brandon, SD. (more details to come) I have been also making some pretty bird Christmas tree ornaments and green wreaths with vintage shiny bright bulbs. I'm also hoping to get a few fairy dolls made to sell if anyone wants them for Christmas gifts. I will also have my handmade jewelry out there as well as my vintage shabby chic items.
