Ahhhh...the Christmas rush is on!

What have I been up to???  Boy I have been running around like crazy trying to get things done!

Lukey is my crafty "Project" boy.  He is very methodical and will stick with a project until the end! Cole not so much....

Lukey made these little dipping pretzel snowmen. One for each of his family! 

 I slipped in a LeeAnn Rimes Christmas Concert...beautiful!

 My wood crafting friend Jill and I (with the help of my Dad) made these wreaths for our annual wood project. They turned out so cool!  We made 36 of these!!!

Jill and I have also been baking our annual Christmas cookie stash...we made more than twice this many plates up today and they are ready to give away!!!  Every year we think we won't have enough cookies and in the end we have so many more than we thought!!!

We also made up some fun Santa Sacks for our grandsons.  My first time using Heat transfer vinyl.  Made a few mistakes along the way-- but in the end I figured it out!!  These were pre printed sacks and we just added the names.

I had planned to help my grandsons make this project(as seen on Pinterest), but in the end, the cookies got the best of me and Auntie Abby helped Lukey make these for his Grandpas and Daddy.  The original plan was to paint on the brown with acrylic paint, but I thought better of it with a 5 year old.  We just decided to use brown cardstock instead. 

I love 5 year old handwriting! I made 60 of these lightbulb name tags for my parents to use for their gifts with some left over for me too!

Well, that is where my craftiness has  been channeled over the last month! I have a few more projects to show you but no pictures of them yet! Coming soon!

 Thanks for popping in-I am off to bed!!!


Pin It!
