Snowballs for Sale!



Good Morning Everyone Happy Wednesday!!!! I wasn't around much yesterday in blog land so hopefully I will get a chance today to stop by and visit everyone...More and more Holiday shopping.....and housework....!!! I don't think housework ever goes away!!!

My husband is having knee surgery today so I will be sitting with him at the hospital.......Please say a little prayer for him if you get a minute. He is having knee surgery.....he has had knee problems for years....but since he has had this issue for so long...why oh why does he schedule his surgery on our wedding Anniversary....????? I can't figure this one out, am I not paying enough attention to him on our Anniversary....LOL!!!! Thought maybe some of you could tell me some funny things or interesting stories about your husband that you just don't get!!!!! HEHEH that sounds like fun, I need a giggle today!!!

Well getting on to my project today......Inky Impression's challenge this week is to add snowflakes..!!! I had this cute little pail with snowflakes all over it that I found at target for a dollar.....I just love these tins they make such a great quick gift.....!!! I saw this really cute design with snowballs in one of my many magazines. I wanted to use this sweet idea and add my style and personal touch to this fun project....I used the adorable image Angelica's sled....I just LOVE this sweet image!!!

Hope you like my project today and if you get a chance come on over and check out our challenge HERE. We would LOVE to have you play along!!!

Hope everyone enjoys their day and thanks so much for stopping by.

Hi Crystal, I am sending lots of prayers your way. I'm sure your hubby will be just fine! Crummy way to spend your anniversary but maybe you can celebrate on another day..? I wish I had something funny to tell you about my hubby but I just can't think of anything right now - unless you count the year we both forgot about our wedding anniversary (the kids had to remind us) :o)

Love your project! Such a cute idea and great gift for teachers/friends! hugs, Angela

Stef H (Glitterbabe) said...

absolutely wonderful.

praying for hubby. aren't they all alike. does he KNOW it's your anniversary????? my hubby is a diabetic - does not take care of himself and wonders why the doc says he needs to take better care of himself. he (hubby) does the same with the car.... sure it's making noise, but as long as it's still running, don't fix it. men!!!! grrrrrrrr!

hugs,

Darlene (SCS:akronstamperdpk) said...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY my friend!! I will keep both you & hubby in my prayers today! For him to come through the surgery with flying colors and for you not to worry too much! I certainly know what it's like to sit at the hospital while you're beloved is going through a procedure! But I also know that the good Lord will watch over you both! Hang in there Crystal ... if you need ANYTHING ... you know where I am ... don't hesitate to ask ... REALLY!!!
Oh yea, your project is adorable .. you are so good with these little giftie ideas!! HUGS!!

jen said...

It took all of my will-power not to buy those cute snowflake tins!! This is an adorable project!
Happy anniversary- I'm sure your husband's surgery will go well- and in a few years you can look back & laugh at the year you celebrated your anniversary this way- it will be memorable! :)

I hope eveything goes well with your husband's surgery. Very nice gift idea, this one! I have been thinking of making small chocolate-cookies for some girlfriends. I'm thinking I will put it in old jam-jars, and cover them with paper. Maybe I'll include some stamping on those, too =)

This is absolutely adorable, Crystal!!! I love that sweet image and the snowballs look fantastic! FYI, I asked my hubby if he would ever schedule knee surgery on our anniversary and he said "I don't see why not". Sheesh, at least you're not alone! Happy Anniversary!!!

Denise said...

Hey Crystal, that is the cutest! Here in Hawaii if I want snow I have to buy them, so can you take my order? LOL

Totally cute project!! Love it!

Lynn said...

Hope your husband is doing well following his surgery!! This will certainly be an anniversary that stands out in your memory!!

Great work with your precious pail!

Shelly said...

Happy Anniversary Crystal!!! We spent our 25th anniversary in the emergency room with me having a major allergic reaction to a new medication, so I guess wives can be just as bad. lol I hope all went well with your dh's surgery. I'm praying for both of you as he recovers. Most men don't do very well with being sick or injured. I hope your's like that.

Be sure to do something special for your anniversary when dh feels better. That's what we had to do.

I love your project!!! It's one of the best ideas I've seen this season. I definitely have to try it.

Jenny said...

wow Crystal! This is fabulous. Your project are always stunning! I love the snowballs on the sled, great idea. Happy wedding anniversary, hope your husband get better soon. I'm sure he'll make it up to you.

Diane said...

What a cute idea.....I make cookies and candies to give away...waht a cute idea to add to the "box" of goodies!!

Hope your hubby recovers soon and you don't have to wait on him too much....maybe hand him a clipboard with a stamped image and some watercolor pencils...bet he won't bug yopu after that...heehee...and as for not figuring our why my hubby does some of the silly things he does, well there isn't enough room here...Thanksgiving weekend was a perfect example of "what was he thinking"!!

Marion said...

What a cute idea for a gift.
I hope your DH feels much better for Christmas and happy anniversary.
hugs Marion

JulyeB said...

Hope the surgery went well and that you can have a substitute anniversary when he's fit and well, though knowing how men are it may be a while as i'm sure he'll want lots of sympathy and casrying around. julye
