Wowie Wow Wow!

Well in the words of Junie B. Jones- Wowie Wow Wow! (sorry for all of you who don't know who that is!) It has been a crazy past couple of months. For some odd reason I always get ideas for projects I would like to do and then try to do them all at the same time. It all started right after Thanksgiving. We have a cute store called Crafters Corner and instead of doing the whole black Friday thing, I decided to pop over there and do some crafting. The items were on sale and then they had free craft day where you could use any of their supplies, paint, etc. It was so nice a relaxing and I was one of the only ladies there! So much better than trying to beat the crowds!

My next project idea was to stitch these cute tags. I saw some pictures online and decided to mimick them. But instead of using them as gift tags I decided to use them as ornaments on my Christmas tree. I stitched each one and then used crayons to color them! Then I glued on some rope hooks. I think they turned out so cute and they look great on the tree!

The finished project!
I also decided to make some Christmas presents! I have Kristi's family for Christmas and decided to make the girls and boys something! So I can't show the pictures yet! But be sure that pictures will come soon! I hope everyone has a great Christmas!

Gingerbread Madness

Wow! Is there really only a couple of days left until Christmas? This time of year definitely flies by! The house is all decorated, presents are all wrapped, tree is decorated and lit, and now I am just waiting and waiting to be done with work! Every year the girls I work with and I do a book exchange! I love doing this because we all get something nice and that we will all use instead of doing some dumb white elephant exchange! Sorry to all of those who love the white elephant thing! But after being a teacher, you would hate dumb trinkets too! LOL

We also were able to decorate some amazing gingerbread houses that Shelley made! We had tons of candy and lots of fun! I learned that I am totally not creative! But everyone's houses turned out so cute! I love holiday traditions!
