Christmas card

We finally finished our Christmas card!  My talented husband did most of the work, but I added my own finishing touches. I can’t wait for them to come!!!

My husband and I are very competitive and we each try to sell the other on our Christmas card idea. This year my Husband’s idea won, but next year will be my year.

If you did not get our card last year, here is an example of how crazy we get over our cardsSmile

I am sure everyone with kids has this same busy schedule.  The inside was a beautiful picture taken by my husband. If you want to know more about how he took the picture you can read about it on his blog.

I am already thinking ahead for next years card. I think I already have the winning idea!

Advent calendar

Many years ago I created this cute advent calendar for the kids after seeing it in Family Fun Magazine.  First of all I can not throw anything away, so I had a drawer of socks that had lost their mates in my laundry room.  Most of the sock no longer fit the kids, so I thought they were perfect for this project.

I used tiny clothespins to hang them on a length of twine.  In each tiny sock I placed to sweet treats for my kids.

While planning my son’s first birthday, I found another use for the sock garland.  I thought it fit in perfectly with my SOCK monkey theme! I took off all the girly socks and added a few new baby socks.  To tie it all together I added a sock monkey onesie in the middle.  I love seeing all the baby socks, cause kids grow so fast.

Turkey Shirt

I created a cute turkey ribbon shirt for a sweet little girl. I used a turkey that I downloaded from the shilouette gallery. I then hand sewed ribbon to the shirt to make the feathers.

I cut the turkey out on my wishblade. I ironed the turkey over the ribbon. I know who will be the best dressed at Thanksgiving!

Mom shirt

I wanted a shirt to wear to my kids basketball games. The problem was that I have a cheerleader and a basketball player. I wanted to represent both on my shirt. I tried a lot of combinations before I came up with the final product. At each game the kids get stars that I iron on their shirt sleeve, they show what the child was good at that week. It gave me the idea to use my sleeves. I put my daughters name in a megaphone on one sleeve and my son’s on the other with his number. I used iron on the fabric interface to my fabric and ran it through my cutter. I then had to hand place all the letters. Next time I will get the iron on vinyl to make it easier.
