ooooohhhh pretty....




Wanna know how to make these???....ok I'll tell you...





first go to walmart looking for the Star Wars Millenium Falcon Transformer (MFT)...the one where Han Solo and Chewbacca snap together to make, yep you got it the Millenium Falcon...You will not find it however, because apparently it is this years sleeper "tickle me Elmo". Everyone you ask will say "I just saw one at ......" and I go there, but they are gone....ok off subject...anyway...since you are there at walmart, you'll of course pick up about $100 worth of "stuff" that you need because it's there...kind of like when you go to target...and inspiration will find you between the vases and the silk flowers....so gather some styrofoam balls, I used 2 1/2 inch, some pretty ribbon, some clear pebbles (the kind you put in the bottom of a vase) and your (low temp) glue gun.....because the "Amy Factor" always means an accident is just around the corner.





I'm all about 5 ingredients or less, in cooking, crafting and pretty much all aspects of life...anything that requires more than 5 steps just gets too complicated and makes my brain too noisy.








Using your glue gun cover the styrofoam ball with the pebbles...




As my models, Britain 12, and Landon 9 are showing you it is really quite easy. I'm am so loving the time that I'm getting with my boys while we make stuff, they've never really been interested in it before. Tie a ribbon around it, secure with glue and then I tied another one and secured to hang it from the tree. These do end up kind of heavy. They catch the light beautifully though.

I also have a layout for Christy's prompt #15



I haven't been around as often as I'd like. I, like everyone else I think, am a little overwhelmed right now with the holidays, work, kids, husband...I am off tomorrow though and I hope I'll get some more stuff done. That is between running my husbands errands, laundry,usual boring house stuff.


I snapped this picture of Cocoa today when I got off work.


oh and ps..I gave in and got the Star Wars MFT from ebay, now I just have to hope it gets here in time.

I love the ornament, and really love that's it's so simple to make. It's so cool that your kids like to do all these things with you.

Loving that ornament! And I love the contrast of the distressed letters on the layout!

I have decided that you simply don't sleep. I barely sleep, but I don't work and I still don't get half done what you do. You are my hero!! smiles...

Oh Amy did you sneak in all of these post overnight. I swear I was just here and it was still about doggie poo.

Another Nora fan, yeah! I have actually read every single book of hers. The year Villa came out, a lady at work knew I like to read, and she said I would enjoy this book, so she borrowed me Villa and that was the beginning. I began to read every book she had put out, and that even included ebay for out of date books. Now I see they are being released again. Of course this was after I had read all of them. I guess searching for those older books was a bit fun. The funny part was keeping and Excel page for keeping track of what I had read. All I know is I love reading her books, and it's nice to see someone else who enjoys her books too. But I haven't read her JD Robb ones. I don't know why, just haven't.

I also love your cooking style. I cook that way too. LOL Also, love all your projects you and your kids have been doing, very cute. Plus you have great writing skills. You make it so fun to read your blog.

Love the ornament! I miss Walmart. Of all the things Poland has, craft stores are sadly missing (not that Walmart is a craft store, but you know).
