the pinterest version of this was much better.
this past christmas my motto was "if it CAN be made it SHALL be made" or something like that. i decided that, like last year, i was going to be making most of our presents because 1. i can and 2. less money and 3. i have this need to make things.
So here was my list:
1. stuffed animals(humans?) for the little ones
2. a fireplace cushion protector thing because we could NOT stand one more comforter being thrown around for the sake of baby-proofing
3. frames upon frames of pictures of our baby girl for the g-parents.
4. race swag for my SIL (woot-woot disney princess half-marathon!)
This basically meant i spent half of november and every single day of december in my "studio"" leading up to christmas. It was worth though (maybe not monetarily) because it was from THE HEART. The following is my round up of christmas twenty-thirteen and better late than never right??!?!?!?!
Also, i threw in some fun pics from christmas too JUST because.
i used this super cool technique for the sweatshirt. its like wanna-be screen printing. you can find instructions here.
Christmas this year was the best. It was Emily's very first so, naturally, she was spoiled. I'll leave you with this video to remind you of the christmas season.
...CRAFTING, of course! This Christmas i felt like a busy little elf down in my new workspace in the basement. I was SO happy that we fixed up this area because my husband would have gone CRAZY with the mess of my projects if i had to do them in HIS territory (teehee). Anyway, here are some pics of what i was up to for basically the whole month of December.
