The Country Living Fair was recently held at
Stone Mountain, Georgia.
If you've never been, it's a must see!
My daughter, Carrie, went with me this year.
Here she is with Cari Cucksey,
of the tv show, Cash & Cari...
How do you like Carrie's scarf?
I made it!
I learned how watching Audra Kurtz's video.
Audra blogs over at The Kurtz Corner.
In her video, she shows how to arm knit an infinity scarf.
Yes, you heard right...
Instead of using knitting needles,
you use your arms!
It's really fun and you can make a scarf in 30 minutes or less.
Carrie was stopped over and over at the Country Living Fair
by people complementing the scarf or asking where she got it.
She graciously told people that her mom made it.
She's made a few too, but none of them were the
preferred color of the day.
Check out Audra's video and start making Christmas presents!
Hometalk & Country Living Magazine
hosted a meet & greet for bloggers, & for me the highlight was meeting blog friend, Linda of Coastal Charm.
She was just as sweet as I thought she would be!
I'm sure you're wondering what any of this
has to do with the title of this post!
Well, one of the things that I loved at the fair
were some altered art pictures.
So, when I came across some old photos
that a vendor was selling for $2 each,
I had to get some to alter.
Check out this beauty...
Hand written on the back of this photo was,
I hope Gwendolynn has a sense of humor!
Gwendolynn, deer, don't be mad!
Then there were these handsome gents...
Don't they look dapper?
This is the one I'm most worried about haunting me...
She looks a little annoyed.
there's this sweet baby...
I couldn't help but giggle after each one I finished!
And, they were really easy to make.
I used a reindeer punch to cut paper for the antlers and glued them on with tacky glue.
The red nose is a 3 dimensional dot
I found in the scrapbook section.
It already had sticky stuff on the back,
so you just peel & stick.
They still make me laugh.
They would make great Christmas cards.
Wouldn't you love to get one of these in the mail?
