{coffee table}....finally done!

This project has been sitting around for so long I no longer have the early build pictures. Well, I probably do somewhere but with our computer crash the beginning of this year and the loss of some pictures they may just be gone forever. However, that doesn't take the joy out of a finished product! Just in time for the {Holidays}!

Getting a head start on {Christmas}

Has anyone else been in the Christmas spirit since before Halloween? I am unashamed to admit this fact. I'm usually the one complaining about those very people who jump the gun on Christmas. While I'm happy for Thanksgiving's arrival it seems to be {at least for me this year} a stepping stone to get to Christmas. I've already started on Christmas cards this year. I got my inspiration for this card from here. I wanted to keep it a bit more simple and left the twine off.....although it is beautiful either way.

Super excited to get these out in the mail.....oh right, Thanksgiving first!
Happy Crafting!

photo project {coasters}

So I will admit to having a slight obsession with photos....old photos, but not just any old photo (although they are all pretty cool), old family photos. I adore them, I enjoy looking through photos and thinking about peoples life before I even existed on this earth.

A while back I was visiting with my parents and got to flipping through some pictures with my dad, my interest must have been written on my face because my dad offered to make me a cd with all of our family photos...well almost all. I was extatic and once home got to working on photo projects right away! One of those projects was a photo night light which I'll tell you all about later. This project porphed into something that I was even more excited about-photo coasters. I've seen different variations around the web but prefer this version.
My parents wedding day, don't they look so happy!

My two favorite pictures! My dad with his best man just before the ceremony and my mom with her soon to be sisters-in-law....oh how I treasure these photos!

Every time we have company over there is usaually always something said about these coasters, they are a wonderful conversational piece and it gives me an opportunity to share with others my life and the lives of those I love!

Happy Crafting!
