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!


  1. That chippy frame with the quilt remnant(?) in it is beautiful -- gives me some ideas... And I want to tell you how *inspired* I am by how much a mom of 5 boys gets done in a day! :-)
