a last minute Christmas craft

This project is so easy, it literally takes 10 minutes.
You can use any leftover ornaments and all you need is a wire hanger or wire.

I didn't have any so I went to the local dollar tree and bought about 50. Some of you may have seen this picture I posted on facebook. Funny stuff...

This was my inspiration, but I wanted a Christmas one so I bought Christmas colors, but it would work year round.

Just for good measure we hot glued all the tops so they wouldn't come off...

 Unfortunately I didn't have a wire hanger and neither did my sister, so instead i bought some floral wire thinking it would work...but it didn't. As we strung them on we soon realized the wire was too flimsy and when we connected the ends it was more like an oval, not a circle. We improvised though and tied down the ends and I just left it like this and strung it across my mantel.

It's still cute and easy, but if you want a wreath you will need to use a wire hanger.

Fat guy in a little coat

When I saw this at Wal-Mart for .97 i couldn't pass it up. See inspiration here

He hated it but I enjoyed every minute. Needless to say, it was a tad small and meant for xx small dogs and since my cats are bigger than most dogs his hair was spilling out at every opening.

It was hilarious.
Thought you'd enjoy

clearance clothes

**This is a guest post from an advertiser**

‘Tis the Season for gift giving and although Black Friday/Cyber Monday is over; there are still a lot of retailers that have great deals.  Right now is having a clearance clothes sale with items from 50-70% off. Hoodies start at $15 and long sleeved tees are just $10. They are offering free shipping on orders of $100 or more.

If you prefer to go to a retailer near you, these sale prices go through Dec. 24th. On their web site you can print a coupon for $10 off or $25 off.

Their cropped sweater is only $30 and whether you wear it with high-waisted jeans during the day, or a mini at night, it will make your legs seem longer.

The multistripe sweater is also very fashion forward and it’s the perfect time of year to be cute and cozy and wear cuddly scarves with tassels or a bold stripe hat.

Aeropostale is featured in 7 magazines this month. The company provides high-quality, fashion merchandise at compelling values. With stores in 49 states you would be hard pressed to not find one near you.

My mom has been watching Oprah since her show started over twenty five years ago. When Oprah announced that this was going to be her last season, my mom was very upset. She said that she did not know what she was going to do at four o’clock in the afternoons now. She said that she was really going to miss everything from the inspiring stories from the guests on the shows to the advice on decorating and losing weight. I told her that the new Oprah Winfrey Network would probably have shows that were about most of that stuff. She said that she did not get that channel. I told her that I have direct tv and I get the OWN channel. She said that she was going to look in to getting DirectTV, because she would really like to have the OWN channel. She said that in the meantime, she will just have to come to my house to watch her shows. Lucky for her I have this channel and she is welcome in my house any time she wants. However, I do think that it is a good idea for her to get this channel at her house too.
