Laid Back Weekend

As I was sitting here sipping my first cup of joe (one of my favorite times of the day)...with my son and 2 of my pups...diva dog didn't want to join us, I got to thinking of what I had to blog about. Hmmm...not really much happening. No big projects accomplished, certainly no cleaning done, just pretty much a slug. Maybe my title should have been Slug Back Weekend, hahaha!

But I have addressed some issues. Finally got that pesky Christmas tree down...found something I hate more that putting up the tree...taking it down, ugh. My brother came over to help me pack the tree up. He crammed it in the box and then dropped the box twice. Anybody wanna bet on if that tree's gonna work next year??? Got everything packed away, furniture rearranged. So now my household is back in order...well kinda, back to the slug thing.

I have been working on some metal distressed angel wings I bought from Decor Steals. Wonderful site with daily specials. Lots of shabby chic, country, distressed type items. I'll send anyone an invitation that's interested in checking them out, http://www.decorsteals.com. Plus it will get me a $5 credit...woo hoo... I'll be posting this project next week with pictures. Ordered some rhinestone brooches for a special accent and talk about gorgeous for a great price. This shop also has beautiful rhinestone buttons for all you knitters, sewers (not the biohazard type sewers) and crocheters. Check out this great shop, you won't be disappointed.

Also been working on a small metal tiara I purchased from Decor Steals...sweet...coming next week or the next.

Have been working on my blog site too, adding tabs etc. Not finished yet, so bear with me.

I have been totally ignoring my etsy shop...not a good thing I know. But sometimes ya just need a break to recharge your battery. So come on...take a laid back (slug back) weekend like me!

  1. Hi! I would like to start by saying I'm really enjoying reading your blog. I have my tree down too, we take it down on New Years. I think we all slack off a little this time of year- with all that it took to get prepared and through the Holidays, we need a rest. For me, I just do the minimum for a week or so until I get in my groove again.
    I need some projects to get me through this drab winter in WNY. Seems the sun rarely makes an appearance from now til who knows when. I'm pretty sure I get seasonal depression, too, so I'm hoping blogging and keeping busy with projects will help. I'm interested in the Decor Steals link. Sounds very interesting!
    I am enjoying my first cup of coffee right now as well, I forgot I brewed it half an hour ago! I was on the computer surfing and it totally slipped my mind til I came across you'r blog post! :) Have a great day!!

  6. Love the name Slug Back Weekend! I need one of those. I do! Also wanted to mention that you're doing a great job with the blog! I love the new background, and it suits you so well. =0)
    We were both nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award by Allison! Usually I don't have time to blog about the awards and such, but I am going to try and make an effort.
    Can't wait to see your new projects. I'm very interested in the tiara you mentioned!
