My first project was figuring out how to cover our canopy structure. TWO years ago, the tarp covering ripped due to sun damage and weathering. It turns out that our structure is an odd size and we can't find a replacement canopy!! So. . . it's been sitting in our back yard as an open (& useless) sun structure! Thanks to my creative, talented & sweet friend, Elizabeth, she created a beautiful covering made out of sunshade fabric and put up twinkle lights. The finished effect was amazing!! HOWEVER. . . during the night, a HUGE windstorm tore through our area & the poor canopy was hanging in rags when I awoke the next morning!!
Luckily, once the wind died down (3 days later!!), we reattached everything AGAIN & it was ready for Thanksgiving guests!

My last "made-it" is our Christmas tree!! Christmas is my favorite time of year and I was so happy to have the time to decorate before heading back to school! Each of my ornaments has a special meaning or history and it takes FOREVER to put them all up because I get distracted with the memories tied in to each one! I especially LOVE collecting creches (nativity scenes): both large tabletop displays, as well as in tiny ornaments (along with my collection of angels & Santas!!). It's not a designer tree, but a joyful tree!
