2014 Christmas Ornament

Today was filled with lack of sleep, scraping ice, driving, fun, laughter, making new friends, crafts, and a short search for Chocolate Covered Lay's Potato Chips!

My day started out at 2:30am when my pup decided she needed to go outside.  It was raining and icy so I wasn't sure what the rest of the day had in store for me.  I tried to get back to sleep, but alas, I ended up flipping through QVC, HSN, and some advertisement for a blower that I think I might need to get.  Perhaps everyone will receive gifts from QVC this year - who knows!   LOL

The alarm went off @ 5:30am and I pressed SNOOZE!  I did not want to wake up - AGAIN.  I always wonder why I'm MORE sleepy when my sleep is interrupted during the night.  I finally got up at 5:45, took a shower, got dressed, kissed my honey goodbye, scraped the sheet of ICE off my car, and drove to Herndon to meet a former co-worker for breakfast at the Silver Diner.

After breakfast, I walked through Kohl's and then headed west to see some friends.  We spent a good part of the day visiting, having lunch, and working on this wonderful project that is now proudly hung on my craft tree! I have a tree in our Kitchen that is for HANDMADE items only.  There aren't many items on it yet because I just added the tree in 2013 and don't really get many homemade items.  I better start making some ornaments, huh?  HA HA

Well, here's my first handmade ornament of the year.  THANK YOU to all the ladies who made this ornament adventure lots of fun.

I'll be making more of these... - WHO WANTS ONE?

Who knew a styrofoam ball could be so pretty!  This was the process.

The finished product!!  I added little flowers with sparkle, and a gold ribbon to give it a more finished look.

oops!  Almost forgot; if you're wondering about the Chocolate covered Lay's Potato chips….  One of my friends posted a very convincing video on FB regarding this product today.   I thought I would go on a mission to find these chips and see if they are really that good.  I visited 2 Walgreen's (where they were previously spotted) and couldn't find them, the workers had never heard of them and I chalked it up to it was just not meant to be!  If anyone tries these chips, please do let me know how they taste.
