Craft Night

Monday night I had the joy of having Tami and Shelly over for a little crafting and a house tour. I'd been wanting to do a project from pinterest for awhile now, so that night it was going to happen! And the fact that we found a leak in the roof the night before and I had no time to prepare anything else!

If you want to see really nice pictures go to Tami's blog here. She took much better pictures than I did!

Tami worked on these beautiful ribbon bedazzled bookmarks, of which I was blessed to receive!!

And got the first letter done in the word PEACE. She is working on this for next year! I'm always working on things from past years!

Shelly found some vintage shorts (hers, and from the 80's!) made of silk and started cutting them into strips. Remember, the 80's shorts were quite she got quite a bit! She's making a fabric/ribbon valence to go in her kitchen. It's looking really pretty!

 This is my pinterest project. Glittered Christmas bulbs. I had seen them on pinterest and thought they looked like fun...not really my style, but fun. The picture doesn't do them justice! They are gorgeous. And sparkly. And really, really fun!

They were so fun, that while it was doing this yesterday...

I decided to do some more!

I save way too much stuff, but in this case I was glad I did! We don't use colored lights anymore, but I still have all the bulbs! I think I did at least a hundred of these!

Mod podge and glitter, and about 30 seconds for each one!

I did a batch for my daughter's room too!

Off to do some wrapping...and a Christmas movie!


  1. Thanks Holly for such a fun craft night. I popped the bulbs you gave me into the arrangement I have by my kitchen sink...cuuute! Every time I see them I think of you and smile ;-)

  2. Those glitter covered bulbs are fabulous! I think perhaps I will have to take all the bulbs out of our old lights (we replaced them with LED lights this year) and glitter them! I have quite a few strings too!

    I must admit, I was kind of hoping that some of that snow would stick (as long as it melted off any roads by Christmas travels) so that it would really feel holiday-ish!

    Happy Holidays to you and yours Holly,


  3. I had such a great time at your place. Crafting, sipping, munching, visiting with dear friends... it doesn't get any better!

  4. Fun! Love the bulbs. I will have to watch for some to use next year! Have a Merry Christmas Holly! We are having our gathering on Sunday, the house will be full.

  5. What a cute idea! Love the different colors! And so easy! I'm thinking.....why didn't I think of that! LOL!

    Merry Christmas,
