Pintester Movement: Ho Ho Ho Edition

I love participating in the Pintester Movement….it makes me have to go through all 2000+ pins on my boards and find some that I actually have to do. I have participated now for the third time (First, Second) and this one is probably definitely a cop out  the easiest one I have done.

Via: Sew Many Ways

A graduation tassel ornament, via Sew Many Ways . I loved this idea when I saw it because I wanted to save my tassel but hanging it from the rear view mirror didn’t work for me, throwing it on a bookshelf was one more thing to dust around, and I didn’t want it laying around anymore. So…….I headed to a local discount store and came across some clear Christmas bulbs, but they also happened to have a bit of a design….I wasn’t about to let that stop me, so I grabbed the one with the M monogrammed on it…..

A green M and a bunch of red polka dots……my school colors were blue and grey……yeah, this should work out well…..
I removed the pin, and the little metal cap….
Then, I dropped in the tassel….easy peasy…..
I pulled the long loop up through the cap, replaced the pin with the little red bow, and hung it up somewhere in my room to take the picture….
Hanging from my graduation cap, and honors cords…..I graduated in 2011, I need to do something with these……
Okay, so it’s nothing special. It was crazy easy, the colors clash (I’m not even going to pretend they don’t. Will I hang it on my tree? Yes. Will I hang it where people will be able to see it? Maybe not….it might find it’s way to the back of the tree where nobody looks. Yep, that sounds like a plan! 
Merry Christmas!!

Happy Holidays!!

Merry Holidays?!
Happy Christmas?! 
Love to you all for the Holidays, 


Seven Quick Takes: 11/15/13

Hello all! In addition to my usual Quick Takes post today, I have also posted a Pintester Movement post so make sure you check that out as well……you can find that RIGHT HERE. Now that I’m done with my self promotion let’s get on to a Holiday Edition of Quick Takes…..Holiday? You may be asking…..yes, Holiday!

1.) I love the Holiday season….Thanksgiving, Christmas, snow, the lights, the music, hot cocoa, candy canes, baking cookies, wrapping and giving gifts, turkey, mashed potatoes…..I could go on, but I won’t. I think you get the idea….I love the Holidays!

2.) This Holiday season I’m also looking forward to the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special….I’m a nerd, this should not be news to you…..I have gotten completely hooked on Doctor Who and the thought of David Tennant coming back makes me pretty happy!

3.) I’ve been playing Christmas music since Halloween, the tree and lights will go up on Black Friday, and we will be watching Band of Brothers like we do every years while we put up the decorations. It is a tradition that we started a few years ago, and we can get through the whole series in a weekend so it just kind of works.

4.) Also in December (and, I know this has nothing to do with the Holidays, it’s just something I’m really looking forward to) The Hobbitt: Desolation of Smaug comes out! I am can’t wait to go see this one with my family!

5.) We are gearing up for the Children’s Christmas musical, and our Choir and Orchestra concert in just a few weeks and they are going to be so much fun. As soon as the director can find me a husband someone to play my character’s husband I will be able to start rehearsing with the kids, and I am so excited!

6.) I volunteered to bring a sweet treat to my next book club meeting, and I’m looking for some kind of coffee cake, or brownie, or a bar of some kind to take. I’ve been scanning Pinterest (not that I really needed a reason to do that) and have come up with a few ideas but I was wondering if you had any tried and trues recipes that you use, anything that is your favorite, or that you just want to share!

7.) As I always do, I’m linking up with Jen at Conversion Diary. Go check out all of the other Quick Takes, and (*Warning* more self promotion ahead….remember to check out my Pintester Movement post)!

Bonus # 8.) Check out these hand painted shoes I posted about last week…you won’t regret it!

Blessings for warm and Happy Holidays!
