A little Sunshine State cheer.

Are any of you guys as addicted to Pinterest as I am? I thought so. That's where I saw the pinspiration (that's right, I made that up on the spot) for this project. It's actually the first thing I've made from a pin that I saw on Pinterest since I've joined.

I've been missing my FL peeps a lot, especially now during the holidays. I decided that our new home needed a touch of sunshine from our old home. So what do you get with a 2-foot square piece of plywood, a couple of sheets of vinyl, a can of spray paint, a few dabs of red acrylic paint, some satin varnish, 4 packs of nails, a hammer, and a skein of crochet thread?

[Yes, I totally spray painted our grass. But not to worry! The hubs has since mowed and all is right with our lawn again.]
[Home is where the heart is. And in our case, home is where our family and friends are.]
[Adding some satin shine.]
[Nailed it.]
[Strung it.]

I can't wait to hang it up.

Our Christmas Card

With the exception of one Christmas, I've custom designed our card every year. This year's card was the first time that the hubs and I have taken a picture. And since it's been a heck of a year, this card is also the first with a little recap. [Click on a pic to view it in its larger size.]
Enjoy! And Mele Kalikimaka from Two Weas in a Pod! ♥

It's the first day of a new month--the last month of 2011! This year has flown by at warp speed. Today is not just any other day... it will forever be known as the day that I paid off my loan! It's been four years in the making, but it is the most amazing feeling! I'm thanking the Lord for getting me through this.

(side note... They seriously need to offer a course in high school to properly educate you about credit and credit cards. Now THAT is a life class that's necessary! It would have saved me years of stupidity!)

This seriously is THE greatest Christmas present that I could have ever given to myself and the hubs. It's the most amazing feeling!!
