Glass Ornaments and Window Valances

I just woke up from a nap. Yes, a nap. I NEVER sleep during the day. But, I did today. This was one of those weeks. It was just non-stop. We were out last night and then I was up bright and early helping at the school bookair. After that, I had to go grocery shopping. Then, I drove Ryan to visit friends. We were going to use our child-free time to try and get some Christmas shopping done, but I just couldn't. I just came home and fell asleep. Now, I have a couple of quiet hours. :)

As you may know, I've been slowly redoing my scraproom. Just recently, I got my new valanaces. I knew I wanted to use Heather Bailey fabric. Well, I found a wonderful semastress to make them! I was online one night and I googled Heather Bailey Valance. Lo and behold it brought me to Jessica's blog. She had made one in the exact fabric I wanted. I emailed her...and the rest was history. If you need any custom work done, I highly reccomend her! She does beautiful work. Check out her blog. She has some of the most wonderful embroidery pieces I've ever seen! Plus, she's fast and a pleasure to work with.

Here are the pictures of my windows:




She sent me all of the scraps and I used them to spruce up the place. ;) One piece serves as a runner and another covers a bookshelf full of cardstock.

I also used some scraps to tie bows onto my baskets.



My room is so much more colorful now. Thanks so much, Jessica!

I'll leave you with a quick project. I love coloring my crystals to create custom designs. To create this project, I colored them with Copic markers and adhered them to clear ornament bulbs. I created a matching card using some Making Memories and Jenni Bowlin papers.





Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day.
