Sneak Peek in what I"m working on!

Happy Monday peeps~
Hope you're weekend was awesome, I've done no crafting over the weekend.  I committed myself to helping hubby do some major cleaning around our house.  We tore down our fence frame in front of our house and re-build a new one.  After years of being weather beaten and faded paint we decided to give it an up do.   Love the new look now, and being that the holiday's are approaching we decided to do some general cleaning around the home.  While we waited for the paint of the frames to dry, we jump into taking our window screens down and giving them some washing.  Weather was really beautiful over the weekend and it was perfect doing what we wanted to achieve.   Whew came Sunday evening we were both pooped working so hard.   I've tried sneaking in between of some breaks we took and catching up commenting to all my bloggy favorites, if I didn't get to you yet I'm playing catch up today in between of getting caught up with my DT commitments and starting on my holiday projects.   
Last night I dreamt of doing something different for this Christmas as far as money holders.  And it was really weird  I played around with some junky papers first, didn't like the way it looked and kept tossing out all my papers and this was all in my dream.  When I got back home from my workout this morning, I tried to visualize what I wanted to make and lord behold here is what I ended up putting together.    Of course I will be adding more embellishes to it and making each one different and I will post as I get them accomplished.
Hehe, I guess dreams can come true....I think this looks really cute.   I'm kind of proud of myself.   

Here's what I used to make this present money holder:
Papers - My Minds' Eye
Offray ribbon, gold cord, sentiment (My Creative Time)
Spellbinders oval & scallops 

Thanks for peeking in - hope to get more of these weird dreams again, LOL!
