I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is next week and then we’ll be well on the way to Christmas!
This year has flown by.
Have you started decorating for Christmas yet?
I’ve been digging through boxes and boxes of decorations this week. Trying to decide what to keep and what to sell at the Rink.
Which is where I came across this…..
It WAS a Santa with this beautifully embroidered coat.
With pretty detailing. I was pulling him out of his box one year (brand new) and promptly dropped him on his face, which was porcelain and broke him. I was sick. SICK I tell ya! Okay, maybe that’s a bit dramatic. :)
Anywho……he’s been stuck in the closet for years.
Heather and I were shopping last week at T.J. Maxx, and yes, I am now extremely BROKE!…… And found the cutest felt snowman head ornaments.
So I tore off the Santa head and replaced it.
Replaced the Santa outfit with white fabric and bling and my Snow Girl Diva was born!
She absolutely refused to wear all white! Boring, according to her!
Besides, I just had to use that gorgeous coat!
This was about a 30 minute project and used things that I already had in my craft room.
Nothing better than getting new Christmas decor for nothing!
I did something similar to this guy last year.
Are you ready to craft? I bet you have some old Christmas decor that would be perfect for this kind of a project.
So now that I’ve saved you potentially Tons and Tons of money :)…….perhaps you would consider something that would bring a joyous Christmas to others.
The BETHEL FOUNDATION is a wonderful wonderful non-profit organization for single Mom’s and their children. If any of you have struggled with being a single mother, you know how difficult it can be both financially and emotionally.
Their Christmas program is called Angels For Mom’s. I know that times have been difficult this year for many of us, but if you have just a little to give, Bethel would really appreciate your help in adopting a mother and her child or children for Christmas. This would be a great project for the business where you work. Everyone could put in just a little money and you could give a family a wonderful Christmas.
As I said, times have been difficult and the need this year has sky rocketed.
Heather first became acquainted with Bethel when she was a single mom, and now works there three days a week.
Your can reach them at 405-286-3700 if you are interested. You can also access their web site from the link above if you would like to know more about them.
Of course, I intended this message for anyone local, since I know that there are many of you who read my blog. However, I am sure that they would accept out of state assistance also. :)
Just ask for Heather!!
NOW GET TO DECORATING!! CHRISTMAS WILL BE HERE BEFORE YOU KNOW IT!
