This Or That Holiday Style

This or That Link Up

I'm linking up with Candra again for the This or That Link Up!

It is Christmas Eve and I am at work for another hour and a half. This is the last This or That link-up and it is about my favorite holiday! Which is tomorrow. I am finally getting in the Christmas spirit. It happened about an hour ago. I have been pretty Scrooge-ish this year. But anyway, on to the questions.

Holiday Style

Halloween or Thanksgiving
Definitely Thanksgiving! I just love being with most of my family and just hanging out and talking.

Christmas or Your Birthday
Both. I can't choose just one on this one. My birthday is special because of course it was the day I was born. But Christmas is special because it is the day Jesus Christ was born. He came to earth to serve one purpose. To save our souls from hell. So they are both very, very special days.

Visiting Relatives or Your Relatives Visiting
How about neither? Either way I get banished from my bed so heck to the no! But I would rather visit my relatives because then I can choose when to leave instead of being the bad guy and kicking people out! Haha

Valentines Day or St.Patrick's Day
Ha. Both are just days to me. So it doesn't matter, but I'll choose St. Patrick's Day because I hate seeing all the mushy stuff all over everything when it is time for Valentines Day.

Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
Black Friday. I love online shopping, but I am usually an instant gratification person so I hate waiting on things to get here. I would rather have it the minute I pay for it.

This Or That

This or That Link Up

Fashionable snow boots or Practical snow boots
I'm going to have to go with practical. Although down here in good ole Southeast TN we don't get very much snow.

Hat or Ear Muffs
Hat or ear warmers. No thanks on those fluffy balls sticking out of the side of my head

Snowed in or Playing out in the snow
Well, I can't be snowed in due to my job. We don't get snow days there. So playing in the snow.

Sledding or Snow Tubing
I've never been snow tubing but I would love to go.

Almost winter or Winter’s almost over
Winter's almost over most definitely. I am not a cold weather person!

On Monday, July 8, 2013, I got a brand new niece. My older sister had another little girl. She was born at 0754, and she weighed 9lbs, 7oz and is 20 inches long. She is absolutely beautiful, and she is such a little chunk. I am so excited to see the relationship develop between those 2 precious baby girls. I'm so glad they have each other. There is nothing like the relationship between sisters.
I also have a prayer request. My sister and baby A.B. were supposed to be released from the hospital today, but my sister is having panic attacks pretty bad and we don't know if she will get to come home today. I am headed down to see her in just a few minutes, so hopefully she will be feeling better and her doctor will be ok with releasing her.

Pinterest project part 2

Here are the things I used for my pinterest project. That post is below.

I also used an unfinished S as my base. It was just raw wood and I didn't sand it down or anything. I think have maybe $20 in the whole project and I had to buy everything. I found the flowers and the buttons on the clearance rack.

Pinterest Project

So a few months ago my friend Brittany called me and told me we needed a wine and craft night. I was all for it, but if you know me at all, then you know I am not a crafty person at all. I also didn't have any idea of a project that I wanted to do, so I did what most of us would do. I got on pinterest. So I was looking through pinterest on my phone as we are riding to Hobby Lobby and I find this. I was so excited, but then I realized the link went to an ETSY shop, not a blog that gives intructions. I showed it to Brittany and she said we didn't need instructions and that we could do it.

I don't have any before pictures and I still don't have the burlap put on that I am going to hang it by. I didn't turn out exactly like the one on the ETSY shop, but I am extremely happy with how it turned out. It may turn me into a crafty person yet.

A few words of advice though. Always paint the lighter color as the base color. I painted the grey first and it took about 6 good thick coats of the yellow to cover the grey completely. I also just used regular scotch tape which worked well for me.

I just painted the entire letter grey and let it dry completely before I taped it off, then I started on the yellow. But here are the pictures I did take. Please excuse the blurry cell phone pictures. I didn't have my camera with me.

This was my inspiration

This is my S after the grey had dried and I had taped it off and started painting the yellow.

Paint dry and untapped!!!

Almost complete!! All that is left to do is the burlap to hang it by!

I bought all of the stuff to make it at Hobby Lobby. I got the flowers in the scrapbook section and that is a button in the middle of the yellow flower and I got it off the clearance rack in the fabric section. I got 3 buttons for $.98. I absolutely love it. I chose to do my first name because I still want to be able to use it after I get married.
