mini calendar

I made this a few months ago for Christmas presents. I made four of them so I could have several gifts for people. The calendar is a little bigger than a card and has magnets on the back to hang up on your frig. The idea was that its there as a reminder of what day it is and something cute to hang on your frig! Enjoy.

This Christmas will be our fifth Christmas together for my husband and I and we've never had stockings. I figure since our daughter is old enough to know what is going on, and my sister is living with us, it was time to make some. I went to a speciality fabric store and bought some coordinating fabrics, enough to make many matching ones for future kids and came up with these.....
(btw- I made up the stocking shape)

I've had a few projects in the works that I've been wanting to post for a while, so now here they finally are!

I saw a doll bed on a blog and had to make one. Well, my husband made the bed and I made the bedding and doll. We wanted this Christmas present to be from both of us for our daughter....

I made this yo-yo quilt, pillow, sheet, and doll so that they all go together. I got the measurements for the bed, matress, pillow, and quilt here. and the doll pattern here.

'Tis the Season to be Jolly!

I love to decorate for Christmas. I've added just a few small things to my stash this year.

This is a paper wreath that was so easy and fun to make. Here are the directions link:

Here are some stockings I made. I was going to make a bunch of stockings for later down the road when I had more children, but for some reason I stopped at 4. No, there are no more kids coming at the moment. I followed the Amy Butler pattern & here's the link:

These are just some dollar store candles I covered with glue and glitter. I love sparkly things!

Just some old blocks I covered with holiday letters.
