Christmas Shop, foamcore

The Christmas Shop was finished quite some time ago EXCEPT for one thing....a flamingo.

Sounds silly but my DBIL, Grahame, has this thing for flamingos: so much so that one year he used a flamingo as a Christmas tree topper. So a while back I picked up a flamingo at the Enjoy Centre. It's been sitting on top of the Christmas Shop for ages and today I finally put it in the room.

Sorry that the picture isn't so clear. The Christmas Shop is all glass and mirrors so it's very difficult to get good pictures.

Foamcore: I'm SO excited that this year on Boxing Day, we're hoping to have our youngest new great-niece, Elizabeth, join us. Looking at my living room, I felt I had to 'child-proof' it a bit. I cleaned up a few things but one thing that I felt I needed to do was block off the bottom of the two bookshelves in my living room. I thought that the easiest way to do that would be to cover them with foamcore. The cheapest foamcore I knew of was the $1 sheets from Dollarama.

The foamcore that I saw in Dollarama months ago was somehow not quite right...the paper side was sort of fuzzy... But the pieces I found the other day were SO much like the very much more expensive ones from Michael's that I bought four pieces for future use as well as blocking the bottom of the bookshelves.
