Haha, look at my tree topper. That crazy thing wants to stay up there sideways! I am loving these multi-green pom-pom babies! I actually broke down and bought a pom-pom maker, because I noticed they are so much fuller when you use it.
It’s a pretty crazy contraption, but it works! You can wrap multiple colored yarn and make mixed colored pom-poms. I just took a needle and some white yarn and strung them up, then hung them with tape on our bookcases.
We don’t have a fireplace, so the bookcases will be our mantle this year. I’m dreaming of a fireplace for next year.
I am in LOVE with our mega-huge engineer print. I know you’ve seen them all over the blog-a-sphere. I got mine printed at Staples. I think it cost $8, then bought a piece of black foam board from there for $6.99. I cut both to size and then used Elmer’s spray adhesive to attach the print. You will need two people to lay the print onto the foam when it is sticky. For ours I didn’t have to worry about hangers for the back because it is propped up on the bookshelf. I actually pasted another picture on the backside, so if I get bored of this one, I can just flip it!
Just a quick foster care update. We had our final homestudy today. We did great. It wasn’t scary and only took a few minutes. Our case worker will be out of town for the next two weeks, but after the holidays will write up our report. She then has to get it approved for us to foster, and we are done! Then it will be just waiting for the children. I’m not sure how long all of this will take, but I’m so relieved our part is over.
We are planning on buying a crib to put in our room on Christmas break, from Ikea. They have cribs for like $69.99!
