Project 365: January 16th through January 22nd

January 16th: For Yule I got some of our family members digital picture frames for a great deal at Best Buy.

I opened them all up clearing out all the packing.

I got really inexpensive SD cards from Ebay which I loaded up with 2 years worth of Project 365 photos. I loaded up the SD cards onto the digital frames so they just needed to be plugged in.

Macha helps me sort through the pages...

I staple the 12 pages together which describe what each day's photo is of.

And Macha continues her help warming the digital frame boxes.

January 17th: SNOW DAY! Or actually night since it melted off as fast as it came in.

January 18th: My new scarf hanger and my scarves all organized.

I found these gorgeous candle holders at Home Goods for cheap to use in my wrought iron sconces. They are greenish with gold.

January 19th: My friend Jemiah's gorgeous and super sweet kitty always hits on me when I visit.

January 20th: Soup party at Dana and Seth's. While playing card games I laughed looking at the floor and seeing how the twins have decorated their parent's house.

January 21st: Heading out to Sunday's birthday party I packed her present up and topped it with some rosemary from the garden.

January 22nd: 1am at the Rocky Horror Picture Show with Robert, Kandice and Kevin.

Organizing the Christmas ornaments creatively. We take turns each year with our Christmas trees. Here are the ornaments for Patrick's tree which are blue, silver, clear, black, a touch of purple and white with snowflakes.

Also a small stack of beautiful blue lighting. Here you can also see the old ornament boxes which were scratching up the glass balls from their paint jobs.

I cut up sheets of silver foil address labels which I had that were unusable since ink did not want to print on them and pen would also not work. I used them to separate the glass balls and protect them.

I used up a small stack of small Christmas wrapping boxes I had been holding onto for years and have never had a use for to reorganize the glass balls.

I taped the boxes to give them more stability.

We take turns each year with our Christmas trees. Here are the ornaments for my tree which are red, gold, bronze, moss green and copper.
