Merry Mischief

It's been a cross between Santa's workshop and It's a Wonderful Life around here. I am actually for the first time in a long time, enjoying the Christmas countdown.  (My friend Amy perceptively questioned if it was because this was the first year I didn't have my annual tag sale)?  Hmmmmm.
Me thinks she's onto something....

Anywho...I have been having fun banging out some new product for the store and painting furniture for you wonderful Chumps.  I've had plenty of sign orders to keep me busy and am so appreciative of the new clients I've acquired even during the busy holiday season!  Thank you all!
Here's a little of the mischief merry-making around here:
Santa's little Elf busy at it in the garage/workshop that day too!
Signs, Signs, Everywhere there's Signs.
Growth Chart Rulers for my booth at Not So Shabby.
Lots of painting projects. Here's only one.


Wish you could've seen the before of the chair-ratty old antique with brown leather seat. I recovered it with the backside of a vintage quilt and personalized it for my client's daughter. 

All work and no play makes Christy "Crusty" so I made sure I surrounded myself with good friends and good fun as well last week.  So blessed to be part of a Thursday morning Bible study these past few years with some great girls that have become like family to me.  We celebrated the season with our annual Christmas brunch which my friend Jackie hosted. I had to snap a few shots of the vignettes that her "Christmas Elves" had recently finished. 
Love these adorable pointsettia-toting reindeer!

These oversized bling-a-licious ornaments would put even Scrooge in a merry mood.

Check out the owl in the branches near the top. Totes Adorbs! :)
And a shout out to creative Chump, Amy H. who has a knack for pulling together floral arrangements and making everything beautiful.  I drove by her house on the way to another client's last week and noticed the PB knock off "NOEL" sign that Ken and I sold at last year's tag sale.

Made my day to see it proudly displayed on her front door. (Unless of course, that IS the actual metal one from Pottery Barn) in which case, I'm sorry to have made assumptions but you still get brownie points for incorporating it in your outdoor display!
Amy, if you're reading this, you've won a LOVE sign that you can somehow make cute for Valentine's day. FB message me to pick it up sometime.
Hope you Chumps are enjoying some merryment as well this season.  More soon...

That can be done the two Charles although you should
concentrate more on the actual assessment web site on its own.

I go along really, I'm sure! Would likely this turn into potential to give you your web blog translated into Italian made? Language is actually our 2nd language.
