ready, set…christmas!

well, halloween’s over. that means it’s time for christmas shopping, decorating, baking, etc.! yes, there’s that pesky thanksgiving holiday between now and christmas, but i’m not all about filling my home with turkey decorations. i saw a super simple but cute idea on ravelry to make yarn christmas trees, so i decided to use the rest of a gift card i had for michael’s on the supplies to make a few. i had to dig out the hot glue gun from storage in the basement, but i think the end product was worth it! i made two tonight and plan to make a third soon. i still feel like they are missing a little something on top, but don’t really have the right supplies/yarn to make a star, so they are staying like this for now.

christmas ftw

About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
