Handmade Christmas….

12 Days of Handmade Christmas

I found this blog today and I’m not sure what I’m loving the most….the stockings, the tassels, or the dishmat.  I can only imagine the cuteness yet to come.

I found some treasures at the thrift store today, now to figure out what to do with them.  (Pretend I inserted a pic of three wooden signs right here…which I would have done had my camera not just died on me….)

Family- The ones you live with, laugh with, love Vinyl Decal TWO COLORS- You Choose

I found this stinkin’ cute sign on Etsy, stop by and buy one.

Family name vinyl lettering wood plaque custom great for bridal shower or wedding gift

I am thinking about doing an established sign, I like the one above and you can find it at Etsy right here.

I like the distressed look of this one, you can start your Christmas shopping right here.

Today I spent time making cards with Sherri, of course making cards was just a little bit of what we did.  We ate some awesome pumpkin dip….I mean awesome….I’ll share the recipe sometime between now and Christmas…..the best part of the day was the conversation.  I sometimes wonder why such an awesome human being puts up with me.  I could tell you 100 different reasons we’ve been friends for all of these years, she is truly the best.

Today was my Spare Mom’s birthday, I can’t begin to imagine how different my life would be without Sandy’s love and support.  I sent her a birthday basket and I’m afraid Daddy might be enjoying it more then she is, yeap it involved sweets.


About Michelle

I started my blog as a way to connect with other paper crafters and of course it has gone a totally different direction. I've been able to share my experience as a mother, my hurt and disappointments over not having a relationship with my maternal unit, my walk with God and how knowing Him has changed me and continues to help me grow into the person I strive to be......
