The Joy Of Giving

I love crafting and I love giving. So what better thing to do than to make something to give to others?! Each year, I send homemade gifts for the littlest one’s teachers (the oldest one doesn’t cooperate anymore)! And this year I made personalized wreaths. Her teachers don’t follow my blog so I can share them here before I send them out. 😉

I love the pink in this one but I didn’t want to make them both the exact same one so I used the same concept but changed it up a little bit for my second one. The next picture is not the best one because my settings weren’t perfect but I don’t have time to take some more so I here it is anyway.

I sure hope they enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them and as much as I enjoyed the look on my little one’s face when they were finished! ((:

Hope you guys are enjoying the holiday season!!

It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year!

The Christmas tree is up and so are the rest of my decorations for the living room. Since I have been super busy with work I am not sure if I’ll be doing much more decorating than that so I’ll share these with you guys for now.

I was testing my camera in the above shot and I actually like it a lot! 😉

That chalkboard that my coffee filter wreath is on is one of my latest projects that I haven’t had a chance to share here. I am in love with chalkboards and they are all over this place. I even used some chalkboard tags on the tree with Christmas words written on them.

That ruffle pillow cover is only one of a few bunch that I sewed not too long ago out of a queen size white sheet (in case I messed up, it wouldn’t be too pricey)! 😉

I love this type of packaging and those wrapped little presents are from last year but I couldn’t help myself and I just had to used them again this year!

Stockings haven’t been hung but I’ll share those later if I get a chance! How about you guys? Have you put up your tree and decorations yet?

Thanks for coming here and I wish you the most wonderful holiday season, my friends!!
