I think my blog skipped Thanksgiving!

I am in the middle of trying to find some finials for some decorations I am making. I normally post about what I am looking at currently and well ummmm.....I think other than a delicious pumpkin pie I have moved directly into Christmas. So sorry for those out there that are looking for great Turkey day ideas but you probably wont find them here.
I was mostly looking at color scheme on these projects. I think Christmas should be full of fun and color. I love what the most recent Grinch Movie did with the color and fun throughout the WhoVille city. Anyways these ideas were stalked off of a site that you can buy anything you see. It's called Trendy Tree if you want to go see! (sorry I know so silly having talked about a DR. Sues Movie and then the rhyming begins).

I know it's not chrsitmas yet but.....

I recently went yard sale shoppin' and found this really great old tin. The women said I had to take the stuff that was inside the tin too or their was no deal. So when I got it home I found that there were all sizes of foam balls in them. So in efforts to make Christmas decorations with them I did a search. Didn't find what I wanted but did find these little amazings.

The DIY for these lovelies is at HGTV

Can be purchase at colonial candle
(however it does look fairly easy to duplicate if you have the time, when my husband and I were dating he was too cheap to buy a tree so I made him one out of wrapping paper and taped it to the wall. I imagine this would be the same process)

Not Martha

Recently went and stalked a site called Not Martha. This gal has so many great how to ideas. I'm excited to do a few of them for Christmas this year already. I think I love the name of the site just as much as some of the projects she comes up with. I am just wishing that I would have found her pre-halloween to snatch up some of her great ideas. I guess there's always next year or perhaps just playing a really good joke on some unsuspecting family member during thanksgiving (I know I'm a sicko but sometimes I can't help it). Anyways she's fantastic and worth the looky. Here is a quick teaser of what she has up.

I had never seen these before they are called party balls. A great little idea for a kids party. The concept is simple you start with a ball and place a prize inside.
Then you wrap the ball with a streamer and meanwhile hiding other goodies as you wrap.

In a different tutorial she shows how she makes her kitchen functional with some amazing organization skills. This little beauty that you could just see in the display room at Ikea for example>>

Check her out then come back and tell me what project you loved! Happy Crafting, Oh and Not Martha You have officially been Stalked!
