Do it yourself.

I am alive.

Figured I'd let everyone know that bit of information.  I mean, shoot---it has almost been an entire month since my last post.  Please forgive me.  Life gets busy, busy, busy; especially during the holidays.  But don't worry about me.  My busy-ness is all fine and dandy because I must say, I have been spendin' my time wisely. 

You know, just spendin' time playing with my kitty and crafting my life away.
Wise, right?

Don't answer that until you see the picture below.

Ollie boy, the Christmas kitty.  Now don't you see why I can't resist?  He's a doll. 

DIY---(Christmas banner over window is made of patterned scrapbook paper, yarn, and a smidge of tape. 
Cheap and easy.)
Decorating the tree

DIY---(Christmas tree sitting on windowsill is made of styrofoam, yarn, buttons, and a mini pot.  Below, I added a picture that gives you a closer look.  I added the buttons for ornaments to give it a much more bright and fun sort of look.)

The holiday spirit is getting even more intense now that we have approached the month of December.  This is a good thing.  Now, maybe Pinterest people will begin to pin even more Christmas thingamahbobs.  Lets hope so, friends.  'Cause I really like to keep my crafty hands busy.
