Altered Wooden *JOY* and just 1 day left for my Blog Candy !!

Hope you are in for along post today!! hehe I purchased these wooden letters and snowflake from Michaels awhile back and just got to altering them now. I have so much Christmas paper but I keep coming back to these My Mind's Eye papers. They are just so beautiful! All the letters are covered with them.

The "J" has some white Pom-Pom trim along the top, a Me and My Big Ideas Deer Sticker, which I added some glitter to, a sparkly snowflake bow, a felt snowflake with another snowflake sticker in the center and lots and lots of glitter!

The Snowflake "O" has some Me and My Big Ideas CS Stickers, mini pearls, hemp cord and more glitter!

And the "Y" has part of a holiday pick, foam and felt snowflakes drenched in glitter, buttons, hemp cord, a jingle bell on some wire which I painted white and yup, you guessed it, more glitter!!

This display looks so pretty up on the fireplace mantle. I hope you like it too!

Tomorrow, Saturday the 13th, over at Scrapbook News and Review is the Big Playtime at the Pole Christmas Crop! You shouldn't miss it! There are going to be lots of fun games, challenges and lots of fabulous prizes!! It all starts at 8 am CST and goes until 8 pm! Hope to see you there!
Well, I'm off to play with my son! I can't believe how smart this little guy is! Not only does he speak in full sentences now, but he can count up to 8 at the age of 2 and a half! He says thank you and please all the time and covers his mouth when he sneezes and coughs! And the things he comes up with are just too hilarious!! I am just in awe of him! He is definitely the JOY in myself and hubby's life! I don't know what we ever did without him! Oh that's right, me and my hubby had a life!! LOL Just kidding! hehe I just came across this photo I took of him 2 years ago for our Christmas cards! I can't believe how much he has grown! Boy, time sure does fly!!

And don't forget you still have 1 more day to sign up for my blog candy!! Just go to THIS POST!
Have a wonderful evening!! ;)

Hugs, Melissa
