Pretty things...

Mr. Finn came home on Friday and brought me these amazing containers.  There are endless possibilities for them and I can't wait until I can get them filled to the rim.
What would you do with them?

This was given to me several Christmases ago from Nyoka and I never got it put up.  Mainly I couldn't figure out what to use for the names until I stumbled across these at Joann's.  Little chalkboards clipped on with binder clips.  Seemed easy enough and I kind of like it.  I just need to antique their poor little frames so they blend better.  I am still working on getting the names done, but you get the idea.  Tomorrow night for FHE we are going to Cats and Dogs; The Revenge of Kitty Galore.  Mr. Finn says it reminds him of a James Bond movie.  Should be fun!

I got to visit a friend that I never knew was so talented.  She taught me how to make bows for Miss Boo's hair.  I have always wanted to learn and so we made lots and lots of bows. I think I got a little out of hand.  Boy! Do I ever owe her big time.

 This is my favorite.
OK.  I know I should have cleaned the hot glue spatter off first.

Miss Boo's favorite.  These spiders were to die for.

I have always said I was creative as long as I was with someone that had all the talent. 
I have always plagiarized ever since I was little.  I know that is horrible to think that YES I have made things and acted as if it were I that had come up with the idea.

But this time I will give the credit to Kimberly because she really has a great talent and one of those is that she won't help you do it.  She will teach with one and you are on your own.  So... maybe it is mine?   Just kidding.

Mr. Finn is home...

... until Sunday and then he is off to the "mother ship" again for a week.

Those are the sweetest little bows! Love the chalkboards, too. I used those for Christmas tags one year - a white paint pen will look just like chalk! As for the glorious containers - different kinds of dry cereal; my kids would think they were in snack-heaven!
