It was quite a full week around here. Take a peek.
To use up a couple of packs of bakery bread in the house, I made French Toast to fuel us up for Sunday's day ahead.
Pat wanted to get the shed cleaned up so he could move more of the items from the damaged barn over before he began tearing it down. This is what we were working with inside the shed.
Monday was all about the errands: groceries and picking up gifts.
I didn't leave the house at all on Tuesday as I worked on chores and began a Christmas craft that I hope to share soon. I did make a pretty yummy Mexican lunch of bean burritoes.
I spent the bulk of Wednesday at my mom's house. We ran a couple of errands before my niece came home from school. In the evening, she and I dove into a cookie-decorating kit.
I woke to a foggy Thursday morning that gave a beautiful haze to everything as the sun rose.
Pat and his sister's partner worked much of the day on dismantling the roof of the barn at the bottom of that picture. Me? I began another Christmas craft.
The evening was just as hazy as the morning. When I went out to close the chicken coops, the flashlight's beam highlighted the water vapor in the air.
I finished the rest of my Christmas shopping on Friday, which is a new record for me! We also met a friend at the Fairhope Brewing Co. for a couple of beers outside.
On Saturday, the Japanese Maple was glorious!
While Pat removed the plywood walls in the barn, he found this gem and called me out to there to admire it.
I kept on track for #CarveDecember this week.
Shortly thereafter, I had an epiphany.
Like last week, I only found a few snippets of inspiration to share with you. What can I say...I've been busy!
- The tutorial for these Dipa Earrings on Halcraft Collection caught my eye. What a neat design.
- I have to admit that these sculptures from Alessandro Gallo are a tad disturbing but so well done!
- Here are 10 DIY Christmas Ornaments from Crafty Little Gnome.
- Speaking of Christmas ornaments, this Easy Ornament from a Dollar Tree Gumball Machine really speaks to me for some reason.
- I've been saving this Fun & Funky DIY Christmas Tree tutorial since last year. It's so fun! And Michelle Mach pointed out on Twitter that it would make a great earring display too.
- Nunn Designs also shared this Holiday Ornament tutorial last year that I thought was worth saving to show you.
- I thought I ought to share this fabulous British show with you. Pat and I have been binging on Taskmaster for a week or two now. You can find it on YouTube. It's a good laugh and so much fun to watch.
And, that was my week. Now that my shopping is done, I feel like I have a world of options in front of me. So, I need to focus on what it is I want to accomplish before this year is out. How are occupying these last few weeks?
