Thankyou too, to those who offered advice re my selling dilemma. I have had some recent success with ebay including the bedhead that I recently made over.
So I will soon be listing this cute little cupboard that Sandy at Paint Me White painted beautifully for me.
I thought I would show you just a couple of Christmas ideas that I did on the cheap before Christmas completely fades from our minds.
First... I wanted a novel way to display our Christmas cards (we seem to get less every year, sign of the times maybe) and spied this bamboo expanding garden trellis for around $5. I will probably paint it and use it to display photos once I have de-Christmased the house.
Next is this wreath which is just a polystyrene ring covered with a 5 dollar feather boa purchased from the childrens dress up aisle. I have another one to do and once again will use them in the house throughout the year.
Lastly, and I hesitate to do this as it's putting myself out there a bit, I have included a link to my Church website. It contains video of our recent Christmas Carol Service at which I sang a solo. I have done a lot of singing in the past but not so much in recent years so the old pipes are a bit rusty. If you can be bothered viewing I hope you enjoy the song and appreciate the message contained in it. I had a power point showing at the same time, mainly to deflect attention from myself, (although that was a bit hard given there was a blinding spotlight on me!) but it also really helped portray the meaning of the words.
