But, I did make shelf liners while watching my two favorite shows (30 Rock and The Office). I did swing by Hobby Lobby and find an adorable clock on sale. I did buy a strand of white Christmas lights.... because, well, they were playing Christmas music ALREADY and I'm a giant sucker.
Here's my little clock. I got it for half off, so it ended up being $7. I think it's perfect for the kitchen. I'm going to hang it over my chalk board... but that is another post entirely.
Here are my shelf liners. Nothing phenomenal, but it was fun to do something with scissors. I felt very relaxed, like a kindergartner at craft time. Maybe I should just start cutting things out every night... where are my paper dolls? Anyway, I ran a little short of card stock, so I still have to make a couple more.
And this is what I did with my Christmas lights. I know it's a smidgen Christmasy for a year round decoration.. but I don't care. It looks so happy, so I'll leave it for now.
I wrapped my night up looking at magazines and staring at Mabel. This is why animals lower people's blood pressure. Just look at that face. I cant be mad or upset when I look at her. All in all, it was a lovely Thursday night. I've decided to wrap up my chalk board project this weekend... you are all going to laugh out loud when you see it. I have taken the easy way out for sure! :)
PS... I need to give a BIG thank you to everybody who has given me their opinions/help about my living room curtains. I so so so appreciate all the feedback, I have no idea how I functioned before I started this blog. I cant imagine not having all my blog friends for inspiration! Thank you to Chris especially for the fabric tips.
