It was so nice to have Monday off as a holiday today, but I hope that everyone also took a moment to appreciate Martin Luther King Jr. for the man that he was, and all that he did for our community.
|Off to see the wizard!|
After a rather uneventful 4 hour bus ride Sister #1 and I met up with Sister #2 and we had lunch at the Stage Deli. The food was delicious, even if it came in portions meant for giants. And the humungous slab of cheesecake that showed up for dessert was to die for. Once again, I'm SO glad a diet wasn't on my list of New Year's Resolutions...For any of you who have been to NYC, or have at least heard about it, it certainly is full of lights and people!

Sunday was my Mom's birthday...Happy Birthday Mom! So we hung out at home, ordered Chinese Food and watched the Patriot's fumble the play off game. BOO. Congratulations Jets...that was tough to say.
Today B and I finally got to spend some time together. Between me being wiped out with the flu last week, and his hectic schedule, we hadn't seen each other in over a week. I hate when that happens...
I finally got around to finishing off my colored filter wreath that I gave a sneak peek to here. Check it out!
As you saw in this post, I followed almost the exact same steps. First, I took a foam brush and paint and added a thin layer to the edges of my coffee filters. Before they dried I blew on them a bit to help separate the edges. Then I peeled them all apart to let them dry.
|Filters drying...see the little bit of purple on the edge!|
I started the process the same. Layed the wreath form flat on the table, started at the bottom and continued to glue my filters up and around. For a full tutorial check out this post.
After running out of filters, it took me until now to stock back up and complete the process. Once I was finished, I hung it on the door. See what you think!
Have a great Tuesday Everyone!
