Almost finished

Sorry to my LJ friends.So much to do that I cross posted.
Jas has wanted a wooden chest for several years.I couldn't afford one.Last week? I think, I found one for 8 dollars at our thrift shop.It had tempura paint poured on top,tacky to the touch.Parts of wall paper stuck to the inside and the latch broke.Looked like it had been beaten and left outside.After murphy's oil soap,a wire brush,2 types of sand paper,bruce wax stain for the top and a new latch I'm almost finished.I'm excited and worried.She knows that I've been working on something in a big wooden box that's been draped in my room.It's gotten to where the waiting is killing her and she loves it.She says it could even just be a box and she will happily take pictures of herself peeking out of it.So, yay.
I'm making Cin an N7 pin.I hope it comes out ok,too.
Cin and I are making Paul a storm trooper mask out of milk jugs.Here is where we got the directions
And I want to make my mom some slippers to go with her pedi kit.All may not get done but I will be happy with what does.
Have a Holly Jolly Y'all

Ferndale Tractor Parade/2nd Largest living xmas tree in US

My youngest daughter loves the tractor parade.My middle girl only went cause her friend wanted to go with us.My oldest isn't into being out in the cold and rain.It was cold,wet and fun.Hot cocoa and family.This is the trophy for best float

I tried to get a pic of middle girlie with tree.It's the 2nd largest living Christmas tree in the U.S. Yahoo says so.But here's the problem:Cell phone photography and a really dark rural night.
All 3 girls(youngest,middle and middle's friend) were in front of the tree in this photo.Middle girle,Cin, hasn"t ever seen the tree.I took them up to the base so they could see that the bulbs are colored light bulbs.Like the kind you use in a lamp.She was amazed.I wanted to share that with her.I'm glad that I did.This was Sunday.Gosh it was fun.
