Altered clock and other stuff...

I have been blog SLACKING lately!!! Seriously, I have been so busy. And I have barely even made time to catch up on my blog reading list, let alone write about my crazy life!

I finished reading Twilight. I seriously LOVED the book! I ordered the 4 book collectors set, I got the whole thing {including} shipping for $35. I hope it comes soon. Although, I really need to do other stuff besides read ALL day long!

I also seen the movie. With Mitch. I thought he'd hate it. Well, he REALLY liked it. SERIOUSLY??? I have mixed feelings about it, but will buy it when it comes out on DVD, and watch it again. I've heard it is better the 2nd time around. That's understandable. Now that I know what happens, and how it compares to the book, I'll actually be able to relax and watch it. Instead of being all judgmental.

We had Thanksgiving the day BEFORE Thanksgiving. It was small, just me, Mitch, Sami and Justin. But it was my first one ALL by myself. YIKES! Everything turned out awesome! Mmmmmm mmmmm Yummy! Mitch made the turkey, well it was a group effort, but HE did all the ICKY stuff, and heavy lifting!

Crappy picture! Sami made me take pictures of our little feast, AFTER her and Mitcheal picked at it, LOL!!!

This has got to be the FULLEST my oven has ever been!

Don't look too close at how dirty it is inside my oven. Ewwww. Oh, and here is a picture of my full plate!!!

Now, it may not look like anything unusual to you. But.... if you knew me, you'd know that I never ever ever eat sweet potatoes, stuffing or cranberry sauce! Well, I ate it all!!!! I think it had to do with the fact that I made it, and I made it just the way I like it. Oh goodness, it was Yum Yum Yummy!

Oh and I made pumpkin cupcakes. Actually, I made Sami make them, while I did the peppercini wraps. Which was harder, because the cream cheese WOULD NOT freakin' spread!!! And the thin slices of turkey kept ripping. GRRR! But the cupcakes turned out sooo good! The recipe is over at Little Birdie Secrets.

OK, so before I head to bed, which I need to do VERY soon. Mitch begged me to come to bed tonight BEFORE 2 am. Hmmmm, getting close. I wanted to share my altered clock I made today. It is for my father in law, for Christmas. Here it is BEFORE!

And here it is AFTER!

He loves Harley Davidson. He has a shed in the yard that he keeps his in, and it is decorated inside with Harley stuff. Soooooo, I decided to alter a clock I had here in my studio. It looks way way better in real life. I designed the clock face in Adobe Photoshop Elements. Added brads. Then added the leather eyelet trim around the edges.

I really like the way it turned out. And it's handmade! Or semi-handmade, since it is altered. So it is keeping with my plans to do a handmade Christmas this year!!!

Anyways, it is 1:37, so I need to go to bed now! Good night!! :o)
