DIY Ornament & A Note

Sunday, December 19, 2010

I could talk about how I've only slept 6 hours in the past 2 days, sat on the runway in a plane for 4 hours, flew for 10 more, then another hour, drove 4 hours and all around Iowa...I could talk about all that and how I have to squint to keep my eyes open right now, so sleepy...
But I won't! (even though I kind of already did) because I'm a happy girl! Because I got to see so many friends today and it was all so perfect. Although, I forgot I would have to say goodbye to them again...that is the downside

P.S. Things may be quiet around here for a bit as I'm a little orphan and staying with friends for the next few days - just in case you're wondering why I'm not around!                                




And I'm not surprised I love this!!!
What is my deal with Triangles, I should probably marry them.

I was wondering were you where!! Sounds like you're going to be very busy but in the best possible sense -- have a GREAT time!!
And re the triangle obsession... maybe you should buy your husband a hat or a tie or something with trianlges all over it. It's a thought ;)

I'm bummed you won't be in Wisconsin, but hope you have a FANTASTIC time visiting all your pals in the states! Enjoy, enjoy. Do something very "American" you've been missing... peanut butter maybe? (My German friends tell me it's hard to find over there.)

Alleen said...

Too sweet! This year my youngest daughter's class took plain glass (shatter proof) ornaments and dipped their fingers in paint and placed them on the ornaments! It was too cute and a bit different from the hand prints we've done in the past!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! xx

Good that you've arrived at your destination safely. Yes, feeling better, yet no taste for coffee, yet.:( ...or wine for that matter. Without wine, whatever shall I do when I have to fly?? :)

Megan (Best of Fates) said...

Oooh - I love DIY things that look better when not done perfectly... you know, 'cause I really suck at crafts. So when it seems somewhat purposeful I feel all clever and tricky.

à la Modest said...

Those triangles look hand drawn too. How neat! I like when things are obviously handmade! There is an appeal to them. I like geometric shapes with angles, and I don't care much for circles. I married a mathematician. Closest thing I got to marrying geometric shapes. Haha!

styleonthecouch said...

haha you definitely have a triangle thing going ok, but the baubles are gorgeous and different.. sounds like you had a huge journey but that it was worth it in the end -Merry Christmas!
