Holiday Crafts

Two more days until Santa comes ... the threat is not working (and never really did) on my kids. They are so excited they are driving me a little nuts. I still have some wrapping to do but luckily have spent my last dollar on presents. We are good to go :) Tonight I anticipate watching National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, settling in with a cup of hot chocolate and surrounding myself with lots of toys to be wrapped.

Here are a few of the crafts we did this year (and one from a few years ago that I still love):

This is one that I made with hurricanes from my wedding. okay so this one was quite a few years ago. But he is held up well and makes an appearance every Christmas. I think he is adorable :) Super easy to make and a good gift.

The kids and I made this cute little guy from a kit I got inexpensively from Michael's. He was easy and they had a ball putting him together.

This fun garland of stars was made from the SU! die cut kit in the holiday mini catalog. I really enjoyed making these and thought they looked cute on our kitchen valance. I might keep them up for a while after Christmas. I am looking forward to putting almost everything else away this year. The clutter is getting to me!

My Christmas cards are *almost* done so once I get them all in the mail I will post a picture. I like them and thought they were pretty simple but elegant.

Happy Holidays!

Great projects...I especially like the stars on the garland. I think it looks very nice! Today my son knocked the Christmas tree over completely...candy canes and ornaments were everywhere...and my 7 year old tried to help, God love her, and it just all wadded up on her. It's in a pile beside the windows. My back went out in the night so I cannot lift it to put it back....so I am ready to put all the Christmas clutter up, too! LOL Happy New Year, girlie!
