What a whirlwind!

Wow, it's been a whirlwind preparing for my "Favorite Things" party on Sunday.

Preparing gave me the perfect excuse to finish a major project, a belated birthday gift for my dear friend Katie. If you want to see what it use to look like, check out this link

I've also been finishing up projects big and small, in case any of my guests (or non-guests) would like to take some rescued chairs off my hands.
Here's just a few:

I like this piece because it fits with Christmas, but I think it can carry you all the way to Valentines...
I was glad to finally wrap up this project too! I picked up this great cabinet at Genesee County's Habitat For Humanity's Restore shop. I then hung it in a dead space in our dining room to give me more room for storage and display. My aunt suggested I build it in, to give me additional room for cookbooks. This was a whole lot of trial and error, but I think it looks pretty good.
I was wishing I had some more Tomboy tools!
If you can't come to the party, but are interested in looking at the tools designed to empower women to tackle dyi projects visit . Orders should be made by Dec. 13 to count toward my party and to ensure Christmas delivery!
And since I'm out of staples, it's time to tackle the food.
