I have been so excited to show you guys some of my Christmas decorations this year, but I was waiting on my new Decor Elements to arrive to put on the finishing touches! They are so easy to use. I have had this idea in my head ever since convention and was so excited to finally see it finished. Here it is:
I found an oval mirror at the salvation army for $20. It was perfect..nice beveled edge on the mirror, crappy gold frame and in need of painting! I took it to Michael's to have them add the wire hanger on the back, the original hanger hung it vertically. I painted it with cream color acrylic paint and then with crackle medium and then barn red acrylic paint on top. It didn't crackle as well as I would have liked but it worked out fine...I attached the red and cream striped ribbon with a glue gun (it isn't actually hanging from that..the mirror is too heavy, and then rubbed the decor elements in the middle and I love it!!! Here it is over my mantle:
I used three rolls of the red and cream striped ribbon in my christmas decorations..here you can see it on the tree:
and here it is on the staircase:
I will have some more Christmas gifts posted soon using more decor elements..I am so loving these things!
So for my Bikram update: 9 classes done....dare I say it is getting a tad bit easier, although I am not correct in all, scratch that, ANY of the positions, I don't feel like throwing up constantly and the room heat isn't bothering me much anymore..in fact last night we all thought it was not hot enough!!! Another big change I am seeing is in my skin. It is getting so soft! Huge change! I am not very good at moisturizing and in the winter my legs looks pretty chaffy. Especially as dry as it is here, but I am not having that problem at all this year and it is so soft! there is something to be said about sweating a gallon every class!
Ciao for now!!! Deidre
