December Daily - Day 1

I'm doing December Daily again this year. This time around I am using the Winter Wonderland line by My Mind's Eye. The cute felt tree above is Martha Stewart, I hope to use them on a bunch of the pages.

The first day we went to the Capitol Christmas Sing a long.

Pine cone trees with felt

I have had this Christmas craft sitting in my craft queue for the last few years. I finally busted out the hot glue gun and got it done! It turned out adorable, especially with the reindeer ornament I bought a couple years ago from Target.

Sock Dog

Back in April I made a sock bunny for the middle sister of the three girls I babysit. As July neared, the oldest sister asked if I could make her a sock cat for her birthday (which I just realized I never blogged, she is pictured below!) and informed me that Annie, the youngest, would love a doggie when her birthday rolled around. I give you Sparkles:

And Lily's kitty cat: 

Christmas GIfts

I made quite a few Christmas gifts this year at the request of the giftees. I am not sure why some of the photos are rotated, but I can't seem to fix it...

First up, Dan's stationary:

Next up, Theresa's stationary:

Elizabeth's stationary (I think this is her 5th set): 

And a grocery bag for Jenny:
