Handmade Christmas Bows

I didn't buy any bows this year and decided to make some with the wrapping paper I used for all my presents.  I think they turned out really cute.  If you want to learn how to make your own bows, go to this link.

Here are a couple of pictures:

Our Christmas tree with all the gifts ready to go.... :)

Yay, finally got all our Christmas shopping done.  We did not get a real tree this year.  This was actually our fake tree Mike and I got when we first moved in together.  We lived in a small apartment and didn't need anything big.  It comes in handy.  I would like to have a fresh tree, but this year with all that has gone on, it was just too much stress to go out and get one, so we made due with our little fake tree.  Mike decorates the tree every year.  It is our tradition.  When Magnus understand Christmas, I think it will be a lot of fun to have him pick out our tree.  Merry Christmas.

Glass Etching - Candy or Cookie Jar

I did some glass etching on a $5.00 candy/cookie jar I got at Target.  I am going to put some goodies inside for a Christmas present.  It was fun but made a couple mistakes and had to hide them with more etching (see the star by the angel? that is covering up where some of the cream over flowed and etched where it wasn't supposed to).  The pictures were tough to take (being glass) but I think the tree turned out really pretty and overall I am pretty happy with it.  I have another one to do tomorrow and have now learned I better not let the cream runneth over... lol

Christmas Ornaments

I made these Christmas Ornaments today.  You take Pledge Floor Shine and pour into a glass ornament, add glitter and shake.  Then I put vinyl letters on.  Tah dah! ;)

Christmas Charger Plate - My 1st one

I am trying to make some Christmas gifts this year and started with my first Charger plate.  Here it is.  You can't see, but I also decorated it with stickles to add some flare! :)

Grandma's Brag Book

I made this album for my Mother In Law.  I got the your story photo and was really excited to put something together.  I created the cover with spellbinders and the paper as well as the embellishments are from my Imagine (yummy cart).

Having fun with Vinyl

Magnus uses his bimbo chair quite a bit during the day.  I thought it would be fun to decorate it with some vinyl with my "new" Car Decals Cart from Cricut. :)
