ok ok ok ok ok. I know that Christmas is long gone, I get it really. And on that note I promise that today will be the LAST Christmas related post until next season. But that still leaves today...so prepare yourself!
My snow day was pretty productive. Neither of these projects are new, I've showcased them on here before, but I was just happy to finish up and be done with the holiday season crafts.

paint palette isn't incredibly expensive, you can't beat free! For the next project I work on that needs a palette for dividing paint colors, I know just where to go looking!
Anyways, here's a peak at the finished product!

I promise my next post will be something totally unrelated to Christmas. I swear my ideas branch out a lot farther...
Off for another riveting, I'm sure, episode of Grey's Anatomy. And then...my 1 day work week! How shall I ever survive?
