Christmas Crafts

I made a few new crafts to add to my Christmas decorations.  I made this with picture frames from the dollar store. I then found some scrapbook paper that I liked, cut it to fit the frames & Cut the letters out on my Silhouette. Cheap, Quick, Simple & cute!

 Next was my JOY blocks!  My husband cut out the blocks for me.  I painted the blocks white, when dried, I sanded the corners.  I then found some scrapbook paper that I liked,  cut it just a bit larger than I wanted and then torn and inked the edges.  I then mod poged the paper to the wood blocks.  I cut the letters with my Silhouette.  Adhered the letters, and added the embellishments (ribbon and buttons as holly).  This was simple.  I already had everything at home, so it really cost me nothing but time.  I made a few of these to give away as gifts, because I was so please with how they turned out!

Kid Ornament Tradition

Every year, I get a new ornament for the kids.  I write on the bottom of the ornament whos it is, and the year.  My sister has done this with her girls, and it is fun to see and all the different things they are into over the years.  K is really into Cars this year, so he got a Mater & McQueen ornament.  C is still to small to pick her own, so I have picked hers.

Ornaments Collection

When I go on vacations, I really want to bring something home, but T-shirts & all the other souvenir crap always goes to the way side.  I decided a while back, that I should start collecting Christmas ornaments from the places I go!  (or places my family goes and I don't get to go, but they kindly bring me an ornament)! Here are a few of my ornaments.....
