12 Days of Christmas: Day 11

On the 11th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me . . . 11 pipers piping . . . Okay, that one isn't too bad. If you ask my girls--who just went to see The Nutcracker ballet this past weekend because they'd never been--they'd prefer not to see any 'lords a-leaping' in tights. Jordan asked if the men could wear shorts. Enough said. We're getting down to the wire folks! Christmas is soooo around the corner!

a place to write your gratitudes

I'm in love with this idea. I love having a little place where your family can write down what they are grateful for . . . in an open place for all to see. Take a look at this marvelous frame that Robyn made!  [ Shapes | Giving Thanks ] Here's what Robyn has to say: I have always been so inspired by a framed project that Becky Higgins has shown on her blog before of a frame and the kids write what they are grateful for on the glass throughout the month. I wanted to re-create that great idea [...]

kids say the darndest things

Kids do and say the darndest things, don't they? I can remember when Zach was around 2 and we were trying to teach him his full name. We asked, 'What's your name?' 'Zachary.' 'Zachary what?' 'Zachary Daniel....' 'Zachary Daniel what?' [insert moment of pondering here on Zach's part] 'Zachary Daniel Be Nice?' Umm. Yeah. At least no swear words followed it or anything. ;) But these are the quirky little things that we need to capture as our children grow up....or even when they are older too.I wish I could remember forever, but--gosh darn it--brains just weren't meant to remember [...]

Ohhhhh no, it's not what you think! I love using negative space. It's kind of like a 'die cut' way to emboss.It just adds a whole other dimension to a project.

Aaaaand, she used my most favoritist (yeah, it's a word) envelope!The pull-tab adds so much fun to your ensemble.And adding a stamped sentiment to the pull tab? Love it! Here's what Robyn has to say: When Kerri came out with this fabulous card kit, I was [...]

ornaments | homemade style

I can remember making ornaments as a child. Gluing pieces of colored construction paper together. Carefully using my Elmer's glue to create lines where I could dump the plethora of shiny glitter onto it. It was a proud moment in my little life. Wow. Believe it or not, I actually have a little pink garbage can with mod-podged Christmas cards that I made when I was five that I should find and take a photo of (and then throw away ;) ). The seventies didn't have much--we were simple crafters . . . especially at such a young age. And [...]
