Christmas stuff




Advent calendar, plate for Santa's goodies, basket gift for Emma's teacher (I'm known for forgetting to send snacks and stuff with emma, so I filled it with snacks, gloves, hats, umbrella, bandaids, lotion and hand sanitizer!), and skirt I made before thanksgiving. I actually have stuff to make a matching one, but I got a little tired of sewing. The instructions weren't that great and made it a lot more work than it should have been. But I'm getting the sewing bug again, so I've gotta maximize on that and get Christmas skirts made.

So so so cute. You need to explain more though. Like what about the advent calendar and how did you make the santa plate. I need one of those. Love the skirt.

Cute stuff! Do you have a cricut machine that you use to cut vinyl with or something? How did you do all those cute little things?

advent:
big magnet board from roberts, cute scrapbook paper and some modpodge! then we ordered 3 inch round paper mache boxes, glued magnets to the back, and YES-I have a cricut :) So that's how I did the numbers on the boxes and the santa plate. it helps that I have the designstudio software for the cricut-helps you make things so that they are in one piece and brings letters closer together, etc.
alison-if you come over during christmas we'll make a plate for you :)
