I hope that you all got what you wanted for Christmas. I got 2 awesome homemade gifts. My son made me a cutting board in shop class and I love it. I actually thought it was a store bought one. It looks so professional! I LOVE it. I cried and he was like, "Mom! What's wrong?" Needless to say he could not understand why I would cry that he made me something. LOL Kids! Me and my kids got homemade glasses from my brother and sister in-law. They are all personalized with our names and designs on them. We all loved them! So cool! As you can see mine says Tina Bug! That is what my brother has called me forever! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Did any of you get something awesome for Christmas?
Also this week over at Every Inchie Monday the last theme of the year is Next. My first thought was those little number things that you have to pull when you go to the DMV. Don't you hate when you go to the DMV and your number is 63 and they secretary is on number 31!!! ARG!!!! So that is where this came from. For this one I used 3 colors of delicas and I like how it came out.
Also this week is the last twinchie over at 2x2x2 is White. So for this one for some reason I went to the white things I HATE instead of love. I guess it was easier than trying to design things that I love. Anyways, for this twinchie I made a spider web with a black widow spider on it. I mean I used to have arachnophobia, but now I am not bad with that but I always worry about walking into a spider web. I mean talk about becoming an instant break dancer! Not many things are worse than walking into one of those and then trying to free yourself! ACK! So here is my twinchie, I used 4 colors of Delicas. I really love the geometric look of this.
Well, that is it for me for this year! I can't believe that this year is almost over. ALMOST OVER! Wow! I pray for blessings over all who are reading this and a blessed next year for you all. If you want to have a fun design challenge for yourself think about joining EIM, 2x2x2, or Dry Gulch. I know you will have fun. Trust me on this!
Have a blessed and creative rest of the year my friends.
Love, love, love your thought processes on your inchie and twinchie and was about to die laughing about the break dancing in the spider web thing. I'm the exact same way! So excited too that you finally entered Dry Gulch. I'm not entering for December, but already have a design in mind for January, just waiting on the colors to be posted. Have a safe and Happy New Year my friend.ReplyDelete

Thanks Kia, this one was a toughyDelete
I'm happy I am not the only one who tears up when the kids make me something! lol! My daugther made me a beautiful felted tree in my fav colors and my son made an adorable (truly ugly! lol!) clay elf (/monster). Both gave me a battle not to cry.ReplyDelete
Yesterday my daugther scored her first goal in her debut basketball game in our yearly cup. That had my in tears too. Annoying! Lol!
Great idea for your inchie and twinchie (hate 'em too, I can't breakdance tho. ;)
Happy new year!
Thanks Ann, aww so glad that you got so many cute/ugly things! Moms dont care what they get, and the kids just dont understand that one. LOLDelete
