So we had family! Lots of them. And instead of cleaning my house in anticipation of their arrival, I whipped out some gold glitter spray paint and created a Thanksgiving wonderland on my mantle. Behold.
Is "wonderland" too strong?
Really get in there and soak up some of that glitter. Don't really. I'm sure it's hazardous and not intended for soaking.
It's hard to properly portray that extreme glitteriness of this spray paint. You know what isn't hard to portray? The price tag on the back of my chipboard letter that I was too lazy to remove. This "project" took approximately ten minutes. Plus drying time. I just sprayed the letters not very carefully, then took some extra linen material, burlap and a ribbon I had on hand, and cut out my flags and letters for the "Give" banner, and hot glued them to the ribbon. Sooo quick and easy.
Is it just me, or do you feel like this post is turning into a gigantic confession? Lack of motivation, laziness, procrastination...
Well, things got cleaned, and we had a grand time. Here's a representation of most of the party animals occupying my house. We're missing Grandma...she came the next day. We've got Anthony's twin brother, Andrew with his wife Rachel, and their three girls: Alayna, Hannah and June. That's Anthony's sister Angela in the middle. Lots o' Johnsons.
Rather than give you a play-by-play of the week (though I'm sure it would be riveting), I'll leave you with a few of my favorite pictures.
Hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving!
