There’s a Mouse in our House

The Mouse in our House decided to do some remodeling. New wallpaper & carpet just in time for the babies to move in ! They had  a boy and a girl. There’s also a motion sensor light that comes on & can be turned on by remote. I used a Mr. Beams light.They are wireless and battery operated. I love them. It was the perfect solution for this area. You can see what I did to make this area here.mouse in our house1mouse in our house2MOUSE IN OUR HOUSE3MOUSE IN OUR HOUSE4MOUSE IN OUR HOUSE5

Photo Gifts- Home is where our story begins

I made these for my mother in law. The house she grew up in is no longer there.I know that it being gone has made an impact on the family. Not being able to go by anymore and just look at it. I didn’t have a photograph of the home so I went searching & found an old photo on a property tax website and it wasn’t a bad image.Actually the colors in it were awesome. I used a photo editor to enhance it a bit . I had trouble getting the sizing right & almost gave up on the ornament so I made one in a frame. After a couple tries I got the size right & rolled up the photo and slipped it in the ornament. I love the way it turned out. I printed the Home is where our story begins on transparent paper & attached it to the top. I love making meaningful gifts !! It was a hit & there were tears!The idea didn’t come to me until a few days before Christmas. I think it would be a nice gift anytime of year.
