An altered pot plant holder and another Marie ornament

It's Saturday morning woke up to a morning of chaos, lost car key's, toddlers whispering in my ear to wake up and turn on Dora, hubby going help me find my keys I'm going to be late!
Grrrrrrr so much for a late sleep in on a Saturday morning, after two mugs of coffee drunken in a very quick manner have finally began to become alive......
Now I'm giving out orders and trying to organize a chore plan for the kids as hubby is off in a couple of weeks for a month, so want to get them into routine now instead of just doing it as soon as hubby goes.......So of course lots of complaining because they have to clean their rooms and do something else.
So now their all trying to think of the easiest chore to do hello who said motherhood was a breeze mustn't of had my kids.....
But onto other things I got time yesterday to make two more ornaments for this year's tree I have made another Marie cone this one has a drawstring top so I can add  something into it and have it not fall out and the other is a chipboard planter that I have turned upside down and turned into a bell type ornament...

I'm hoping today to get another ornament done I'm thinking of a little hanging matchbox shrine with a picture of Santa in it, and I also want to get a couple of noodle boxes and start making treat boxes for the family......
I also have another project I want to do just have to get a couple more of the planter's but this one will be a bridal themed project for my swap partner.....
Well should go and supervise the kids before world war 3 erupts, have a lovely weekend.......Have 5 more hours until hubby is at home and I have some ME time.....
