You got that straight?
It could also be known as the CCCCCCC... Candy Cane Christmas Crate Copy Cat Challenge. So I sailed the 7 C's.
But before I get to my project let me
The above photo is looking out my front door. Christmas turned white.
See the log reindeer on the right all covered in downy white fur?
So this morning I was up at the crack of dawn with coffee in hand, to finish work on my copy cat, and this was the view from the kitchen table. I was surrounded by cold white flakes.
Now I'd like to tell 'ya I was up so early because I am very devoted to having something to link for the copy cat challenge but the truth is I needed to get this painted and off my kitchen table. We ate dinner with it smack dab in the middle last night.
And I am that devoted to the copy cat challenge.
I wanted to use a big galvanized bin to put our Christmas tree stand in. But the stand didn't fit. I wanted to use a basket. But it didn't fit in that either. So I asked my wonderful husband who had more than enough other things to do (like shovel or plow the driveway) to make me a three sided faux crate that I could cleverly slide in to hide the tree stand.....
On my shopping list is some fabric for a new tree skirt that of course I found on Pinterest, maybe tomorrow, but till then we are using one we have had forever. It's a two sided comforter. One side has green plaid, the other has pine cones. Nothing special but it has a big wing span to hold fallen pine needles.

This is my inspiration crate. I pinned it from the talented and inspiring Becky at Beyond The Picket Fence. So since this is a copy cat challenge, I'm copying it!

|Perfect to hide the tree stand. And I love it. Thank you Becky for the inspiration.|
If I get the new tree skirt done then I can move on to wrapping gifts. Even if I don't get a new tree skirt made I'm gonna have to wrap presents huh?
