New year New blog

To all my friends,
I don’t believe in New Year resolutions because I think when we are reedy to change something about ourselves and our lives we don't want to wait for a particular day.  We just start changing yourselves right there and then. Anyway, I do have something I would like to work on this year being myself more and embracing what I am good at and accepting the things I need to work on.
I have been thinking about the future a lot and trying to shift my focus on what I would like to be doing and making them goals. I am not sure if it is New Year or getting a house that make you realize I need to make some important decision. More, importantly to you guys this means so changes on my blog . I am going to be changing the look and feel of my blog. I would love to hear any ideas or opinions from everyone out there on what they would like to see from me. Any crafts you are interesting in seeing or topics you would like to know about let me know. 
So this enters a new chapter for my blog and hopefully my life. 
Thanks for everyone that takes time to stop by to visit me.
 Yours Truly,

I am the mad hatter

      Yesterday I went wedding dress shopping with my friend Julie. It is sort of crazy since I know her since she was fourteen year old freshman in high school. Now she is getting married and it feels sort of strange because through out the years we have done many memorable things, but nothing prepares you  how it feel to see one of your closet friend trying on weeding dress to see her grow from an awkward fourteen year old I meet so many years ago to now an amazing beautiful women getting ready for wedding. Wow is all I could say.

       After watching her try on lots of wedding dress yesterday I want did my own fashion today with my hats. I am not sure how many people know I have collected vintage hats since high school. It is sort of secret obsession I have had and although I don’t wear them on a normal days I like to occasional put them on and make silly faces. Don’t judge it makes me happy.  I went through all my hats and took picture of each so I know what I have and then made crazy faces and took pictures of myself. So I thought I would share some of my craziness with you.

Very Crazy Holiday Season

   It has been crazy last two months we bought a condo and ended up moving in three weeks later. Which is sort of unheard of when buying a foreclosure, but we were ready to move into a larger places and we found our dream house. It has a spiral stair case(swoon) and a bay window in the bed room ( swoon) and an amazing kitchen and living room with incredible high ceiling and a great loft.  
As you can imagine I have been unpacking like a crazy person. With holiday season upon us I have been so busy shopping, holiday decorating and getting settled in I have not had time to check in. So here are some crafts I have been working on and creations I have made in my precious spare time.
I made an ornament wreath. Simple foam wreath, glue gun and ornaments. Oh and sense of adventure.
   I also took some pinecones and flocked them my self. Which is not a torture technique just a really easy way to make them look like it had snow on pine cones. I used spray on    adhesive glue, glitter white and sparkling on flocking. All bought at Michaels with 40% off coupons.
    I made wreath from pre-done one at Michaels (thanks to in-laws for bring me them). Cheap ornaments, bells and bow. This is our Christmas card picture this year and the wreath I made was behind us.I love this picture it feels so classic and yet very tongue and check at same time.
