Some Gifts.....

So, I'd been working on these felt trees that I saw on Gina's blog. I think she won them off of someone else's blog! Anyway, I just loved them and decided to try to make some as part of a gift for our neighbors. I like the way they turned out, but don't know if they are cute enough to give away. I mean, I like them, but not everyone likes homemade crafty things.

Also, here's the full view of the sneak peek. Since my sis already saw it because she just HAD to know what it was I made and who it was for! LOL We are both the same in that aspect...hate surprises and waiting. We almost always give each other our birthday or Xmas gifts as soon as we buy them! LOL Anyway, it is a framed LO for her and I'm so happy that she just loved it! :) I really love those black frames! They are 12x12 and I got them at Wal Mart for only $6.50. I think I will get a few more to frame some more of my favorite LOs and hang them up in my sb room and get some of that other stuff in there off the walls. Anway, that's all the posting for today...LOL Good night :)

12 Days of Christmas

So I'm doing this thing that I got inspired by Estee to do. It's a 12 Days of Christmas "thing"...LOL where I planned a family activity to do for each of the twelve days leading up to Christmas Day. Is that the way it goes, Estee? If not...Oh well! LOL I didn't know if I was supposed to start on December 1st or on December 13 which is today and exactly 12 days before Xmas. I liked that idea better, so I went with it :)

Anyway, today's activity was putting the ornaments on the tree, but we didn't do it today...we kind of cheated and did it last night since Miguel was home and he would be able to participate. He won't be able to take part in most of hoo :( Alot of the pics came out blurry because I was trying to figure out the best way to get the lights to show up which didn't work because I had to put it on night portrait mode which flashes THREE times and by that time, the kids had already moved!! I'll post the best of the bunch!! :)

Here's a little sneak peek of something I made for "someone" :)

And here's Mikey playing with his blocks at my table while I scrapped :)
