Just Checking in....

Hi there,
Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.  I did.  And survived the Black Friday shopping!!!!  There was nothing I needed at those early hours.  I didn't leave the house till 9:45, made it to both Michael's and Jo-Ann's before 12 to get the extra discount.   And the mall was having the doorbuster sales till 1 and got a few things before that time!!!!   By 2:00, I had had it and headed home" with my treasures"!!!!!

Here's a OOAK sled I found in GW.  It was painted a wine color and the top part was blue.  Took it all apart, sanded and painted a Renee Mullins snowman on it.  I put snow tex on the white paint.    I have it posted on my Etsy site. .... http://www.etsy.com/shop/loisling

On Sat. I took all my fall decorations down.  Now to just finish cleaning up the house before I get the Christmas decorations down.  It seems all I've been doing since Thurs is run!!!!  Need to stay home and get something done!!!  Hubby will be out hunting.

Till next time,

Take care,



  1. Hi Lois!
    LOVE that sled. Nice find! I took down all my fall decor the other day too. Now to find the time and motivation to get the Christmas stuff out. I'm hoping by the end of the week.
    Our Thanksgiving was a good one and we cooked our own turkey on Saturday just so we could have the leftovers.
    Hope you have great Monday.

  2. Good morning Lois, Love the sled. You did an outstanding job with thst snowman. Love him! My Christmas decorations should be finished today for the most part. I think I will be tweaking up till Christmas Eve. Want a stress free holiday so I am trying now to wrap gifts as I purchase them and will be putting cake layers in freezer this week. Hope you have a great day.

  3. Wonderful sled Lois!! You did a great job on it....We had a nice Thanksgiving (well, as nice as it can be with 31 people in one medium sized home (my sister's) and 9 children under the age of 6. !!!! But you're nutty crazy for doing the Black Friday thing...Yikes - not me. You won't find me anywhere near a store that whole weekend. In fact, if I had my way, I wouldn't go near a store until mid-January! I'm still working (slowly, very slowly) on taking Halloween and fall down...(Why doesn't it ever go down as easily as it comes up???) Have a great week! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  4. That sled was a great find.Love what you did with it. I need to get started on my decorating too.Hugs,Jen

  5. Hi Lois, your sled was a great find and I LOVE your snowman redo, it's beautiful!! I'm not surprised it sold so quickly! :)
