*Gasp!* Another post?! I know, two days in a row is quite amazing on my part. I had to share what I just discovered! I was scrolling through blogs...while I'm supposed to be working (sshhh don't tell!) and I came across a blogger who used this Typealyzer website. You enter your blog address and it analyzes your personality type. I'm trying this out on both of my blogs.
This one was pretty close to accurate:

ESFP - The Performers

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead - they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation - qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.

According to Meyer's Briggs my real personality is an ENFP, so pretty darn close!
Try it out on your blog and see how it turns out. Maybe as a blogger you're someone completely different!

Its A Very Merry Christmas!

The holiday season is upon us! Since I haven't posted in some time, you know I've been busy! This time of year is hard to squeeze in scrappin, but I thought I'd share some of my Christmas crafts!

See that wreath on the tree? I used my star shaped cake pan, set an empty cool whip container in the center. Scattered fresh cranberries in the pan and filled with water. I froze it and then hung outside with ribbon. An inexpensive holiday touch to our otherwise bare backyard.

This is my homemade holiday kissing ball. I chose to forgo the traditional mistletoe for this beauty. Shopping sales at Michael's allowed me to buy several pearl picks for about 17 cents a piece. A little glue and styrofoam ball, and viola! Pucker up baby!

My end table was little a little bare, so I took some holiday theme paper and cut into varying size circles. I took wooden spools and painted them red and green. Fitted with a 3/4 inch dowel, I stacked it all together with a little hot glue and now we have a table top tree! All for about $5 in materials.

These were just some extra ornaments hung with thread in front of my window. Clever hey?
What can I say, I'm addicted to Michaels. When I saw these glittery poinsettias I had to make a wreath for our door!

Here is our cozy dining room. I scored some holiday wall decals at Border's on sale. Paired with extra ornaments and a poinsettia and our boring dining area was transformed into a warm holiday dinner setting!

All is merry and bright in our living room! Notice the "wreaths" on the window...those are decorative ceiling mounts! I picked them up for $5-$7 a piece at Menards. A little craft paint and some ribbon, and we have some unique wreaths!
As you can see I've been a busy little elf!
I hope everyone has been having a wonderful holiday season!
Merry Christmas! See you next year!
