Hairpiece and Christmas RAK

Phew!! i can't tell you how good it really feels now that the weekend is here... it's been another loooong week and i'm just excited that's it's a 3 day weekend for me.... Yay for weekends... LOL... have a lot on my plate this weekend... most important thing is DD#1's special hula day tomorrow at the mall... i was told to have her dressed in her practice clothes with a flower in her hair... any kind of flower, real or fake... they will be having a contest on who's hairpiece is the nicest or something like that... we don't know all the details until we arrive there tomorrow but from what i heard, they'll be singing Christmas carols to Santa.... how sweet! anyway, me being so last minute, i finally finished it tonight... =D
picked up a bush of poinsiettas and some branches with flocked snow, all fake from the local craft store... bought a decent size barrette from Wally world and made this...
with my handy dandy glue gun i stuck everything on the barrette...
to showcase what it looks likes in your hair i played guinea pig and put it in my hair... so yes, that's me, i just didn't take a pix of my face... LOL.... i'll try and get a better pix of it in DD's hair tomorrow....

and i just have to show you what i got in the mail yesterday....
i've been meaning to make one for myself to hold my favorite recipes.... but i guess if you really wish on it, your wish will come true... a big THANK YOU to 1LuvnMama for sending me this beautiful recipe box... ain't it just pretty?!?!? she does amazing work.... her creations have a lot of heart... if you have a moment, go and check her blog... lemme know if your jaw drops at her door...
here it is with the top off... wow girl!! you put a lot of work into this... it's beautiful!
here's a few of the tab dividers... look how she matched it to the label.... CUTENESS!!! Thank you so much girl!!! this was well needed... i've already added some of my fave recipes (mainly desserts because it's sweet like that).... =D another great Christmas gift!!!!!
As we count down the last days to Christmas, sometimes we are so caught up in the whole season, that we don't take a moment for ourselves.... i'm taking a moment now, to reflect what made this Christmas even merrier this year.... i've grown quite a bit, emotionally and mentally... and i have been one to doubt myself often... but getting back into crafting and meeting all you wonderful people, i can now say i'm beyond that point in life.... in the beginning of this journey, i never had thought i'd be a name you all recognize or even a person that would inspire you.... where i am at now, back then, it was never foreseen i'd make it this far... i'm ever so grateful to all my friends/supporters/fans for giving me a chance to show my style, my creations... i am over the top for the 2 teams i now design for, for believing in me and giving me a chance... 5 months ago, i could have only dreamed of this... i am proud of my accomplishments... but i could have not done any of this without all of you.... so, THANK YOU ALL for making this Christmas EXTRA SPECIAL... i am so blessed to have amazing friendships in each and every one of you.... to my biggest supporters... DH and DD1 and DD2... i LOVE you with all my heart, and i THANK YOU for the huge support through this new found happiness in life... {tear}

You sound like me about pics of myself...By the way I like your family Christmas Picture that you put up..Very sweet all of you.
