Are we Merry yet?

kellishouse.blogspot.com is hostessing Show And Tell...be sure to take a look at her wonderful blog.
My show and tell is some Christmas signs I have started... I only got the Merry part done...I need to buy more blocks....the last ones my hubby tried to burn...thought it would be great kindling for fire wood! It's O.K. When he starts to make me mad (remember I'm MADly in Love) I just have to threaten his farm tools or tractor...then he adjusts his attitude. PMS (punish my spouse) doesn't even play into it! Are you following me?
Back to being Merry!
I used Christmas music...a little scrapbook paper...glitter on the letters...

and voila! Have you ever looked for tractor keys, in the dark, behind the chicken coop? I have to make myself keep my ever lovin' mouth shut! Are we Merry yet?
Soon I will share how I met this wonderful man! (Big smile)

debbie - I love the energy with which you craft and share them with us, I look forward to reading your blog every day!( I deleted my last comment as it had too many typos in it..how embarassing!)

Janene said...

You have been very busy!
These turned out very nice.
I can think of about 15 places that these would look fantastic in my home!
Have a restful weekend!


Darlene said...

Morning Debbie,

You are again making the CUTEST things....that Merry sign looks FABULOUS!!!!! Hope you have a GREAT day!

Hootin Anni said...

Yes, oh yes....I'm always Merry!!

This project turned out super! Well done.

My Show n tell this week is all Thanksgiving, stop by if you can find time.

Hope your weekend treats you well.

Your blocks are very nice. You always amaze me. You have so many pretty papers and layer everything so nicely and make the most awesome things.

I totally sense your sarcasm in your post :D My dear, sweet hubby is always trying to trash my craft stuff. I'm always having to look through the garbage after he cleans out the shed because you never know what made it's way in the can! Grrrr! He just doesn't see the beauty in things that I do :)

Have a great day!

So cute--I like it just with Merry. The grumbling verse is a good reminder for us all. It seems like with the economy these days there is more grumbling going on. I am trying to be extra cheerful and full of grace with checkout people, etc.

Those are really cute. I like the Merry!

A Hint of Home said...

They turned out really cute. I wish I could say I'm always Merry but then I would be naughty and not get anything for Christmas.

Voila - you say, wow! This is magnificent.

You made me giggle with your story about them too!

thanks for sharing

How adorable and very creative! You have such talent!

Love it too... my mind is whirling! Where did you get those blocks?? Plaques or 2x4s or what?! Might try and write out some chrismas words, joy etc.. and make them stand above my kitchen cabinets for the winter!! Can't wait to see the rest! God bless!

Jules said...

Love your craft idea! Thanks for sharing your tallent. I also like the set up of your blog.

Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful said...

Debbie, your block letters turned out way cute! I especially love the JOY sign.

I can totally relate on the hubby burning your cute blocks as kindling. I get in trouble if I throw away pizza boxes...they burn really well!

I am so not a glitter girl but everything you do looks cuter and cuter. You may turn me into one.

LOL threatening farm tools might be considered spousal abuse but I think burning craft supplies is the perfect defense!

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

I love it! I can't wait to see the Christmas part. I know it will be equally if not even more fantastic.
I was reading that you are in So Cal too. What rural area if you don't mind my asking. We're scoping out areas for when my hubbs retires and we'd like to go "rural" yet close to "town".

Colleen/And Baby Makes Five said...

You just crack me up, Debbie! And every time I see something glittery, I think of you and all of your clever crafts. I can't wait to see this project completed...

Susie Homemaker said...

reading your post has helped make me "Merry"...thanks so much for the smiles!

Warm Wishes,

These are so cute! I love the music paper on the back. This would go great in my living room by my piano!
