The Whoville/Grinch Christmas Party

 
Had so much fun
decorating for our ward's Christmas Party this year.
Had some great friends who all rallied together to get decorating and a
 program ready for the activity.
 
A backdrop was made for people to
come and take a picture in front of. 
Everyone was told to dress as a Who from Whoville,
the outfits and hair were amazing.

 
 
That's right we had a Grinch too.
 


 
 
Fun ward christmas party.
 
*See the program below for a link to the Grinch's performance*
 
 This is the gym during set up,
 before the napkins and cups (red)
 were set and
all the center pieces were on the table.
 It ended up looking so colourful.
 
Wrapped the tables in paper
 so the kids could color on them
and had
extra Grinch colouring sheet
and cups of crayons on the tables too.
 
We made coloured poof trees (tissue paper puffs) and garland for the walls
and one of our friends made the 3D snowflakes
 


 
 We had 3 different center pieces.
 
This one was made from a dollar store tree. 
We squeezed it into this
cute "whoish" shape
and glued mini pom poms on it
and then hung an ornament from the tip.
 
We decorated the cute white pot
with red circle stickers and green garland.
 

 
This one was just bought from the dollar store.
So easy and a nice pop of colour.
 

 
The red springy red balls were also bought
from the dollar store and
added to a tall
 glass vase full of
 green Easter basket filler
and then tied with a ribbon.
 

 
The program was short and sweet, with a great message at the end.
 
We modified and shortened the
story of the Grinch for our narrator
 
and had some musical numbers through out.
 
Everyone sang the Whoville song "Welcome Christmas"
 and then my father-in -law sang "Your a mean one Mr. Grinch"
and then two little 6 year old girls came and sang "Where are you Christmas"
and then the whole Primary came up and sang "Silent Night"
and we ended with a portion of Pres. Uchtdorf's message on the Grinch.
 
*Here is the link to the performance of the Grinch in the middle of the program*
the worm is my favorite part.
 
 
 
Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and
remember the true meaning of Christmas.
The birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Chalkboards Cards

 
I bought a box of 40
blank chalkboard cards
 from Michaels
and
with my bistro chalk marker
have been having way too much fun.
 


 
I love having cards done ahead of time
 so that I'm not rushed when I need them.
 

 
Can't forget the thank you
 and get well
 cards too.

Chevron, Jack and some Ombre

 
Who knew that when I mentioned on one of my
 posts that you could hire me to paint you a
Union Jack
 that someone would take me up on it.
 
 
A nice couple phoned me and we discussed
4 pieces of furniture
that they were interested in for their home.
 
I found the pieces on kijiji
that had
the modern lines
that they were looking for and bought them
 (they were all in really good condition, not something I get to buy very often)
 
The first thing I did was
a cute chevron pattern
 on these
two bedside tables.
 
Before.
 
 
 
 After
 
 
 
A long Union Jack dresser in grey on this long one.
 
Before
 

 
 After
( I love how this one turned out)
 
 
and the last one was a tall dresser done in an ombre
 
Before
 
 

 
After
 
 
It was so fun to do these and I am so
 happy that they
travelled well to their home.
