Little Snowmen Village and Other Craft Projects

Every year after Christmas, I always  look for something that I can turn into something different for the next Christmas.  I have these small snowman ornaments and thought of combining them all together in one little village.  The  gift box with snowmen theme was perfect to put all of them together.  So  here it is.   
Aft first I only put 8 characters in there  but I found some more in my little tree so I just added them all together.  
 I have this  card holder and thought that it would be perfect to incorporate it in the snowmen village with this  great message.  I forgot where I got these  but they sure are perfect to my project.  
 I put this refrigerator magnet  on top.  The message "If you have faith, nothing will be impossible to you" resonates with me.
 Most of these snowmen ornament were given to me as gifts  and they are   pretty small for our big Christmas tree.  
 These four snowmen are the original ones.  My sister-in-law gave them to us during my first Christmas here in the States.
 I know that this is suppose to be just  snowmen but I have these small people and the nativity scene SO I incorporated them as well.
 The other  projects that I worked on are these wreaths.  I bought the  plain wreath  on sale, they were 50% off so I thought it would be nice to make some more wreath to hang in our windows next year.
 I also made these small ones.  I used the  pine cones and  old  Christmas balls to decorate it.

Glad my  daughter have a hot glue gun, it helped a lot in my projects.  I haven't   removed my Christmas decors yet but I have additional to   for next year.  I always wait till the new year before I removed all the decorations.

Car Parts made into Arts

Last September, we went to the  state park near our area and  along the way, I saw this house with very interesting arts pieces outside  their  front yard.  I  asked my husband to pull over  so I can take  some photos.  
 From what I see, these   beautiful art pieces  seems to be made  from  car parts like tires and the metal  parts.  
 Whoever made these art pieces is really artistic.  This should be preserve in  a museum  or something because they are beautifully made.  
 I was a little  scared  when I took the photos because  the owner might come out and chew me out lol.  But glad I did because  these  are really pretty in my opinion.  What a creative way to  use  car parts.  
My favorite of all is the horse, the size is like that of a real horse.  What do you think?  Pretty cool and creative  huh?

Christmas Carol at Serra Manor

Torrence Music decided to do a little show for the old folks at  Serra Manor this year.  Some of the students played at a different  facility.  Our daughter  played with other at Serra Manor.  We were glad she was scheduled there because we were able to  see the former of our home.  We didn't know that he is staying there so we were surprised to see him.  We talked to him  while we were waiting for the show to start.  
Some of the kids  were sick so they weren't able to come.
I thought it was nice of Torrence Music to  do this kind of event for the old folks.  
Looking at their happy faces  makes me  happy.
Whenever I go to old folks' home, I feel sad.  It makes me think of the time ahead when hubby and I gets old.  I hope that God would take us when we can no longer care for ourselves.  I don't really want to be a burden to somebody.  If I can live at the age where I enjoy my life with my husband and kids, I am content to go when it's time.  

Here is "The First Noel" that she played. Merry Christmas everyone!

A Father's Love

I was listening to this song "A Father's Love" and it reminds me of my Father. He's been gone  for 13 years now but I still wish that he is still with us so he can see and play with my children. He never got the chance to meet them.  When my son was born, he look similar to my Dad, I knew then that he was with me when I delivered my baby.  Even my husband said that  EJ looked like my Dad.  He even  acts like my Dad now that he is growing up.  I really wish that Papa is still around, he would have love to listen to the kids when they play piano.  He was a big fan of his Dad for  his music talents but Papa never really learned how to play  any instrument.  Our son wants to learn how to play guitar, this king bolt electric guitar would be a nice one for him.  The price is a dollar off to a thousand, yikes, I can't afford it lol.  I will have to find me a cheaper version of this for him.  I am trying to find one that would be  good as a starter for a  beginner.  I hope I can find it before Christmas. Anyway, here is the video of the song I mentioned above.  

It's not Goodbye by Laura Pausini #LegendsOfTheFall
