A couple of Monsters to go in the stocking. These were made from the Monster Chunk and Bunny Nugget patterns at Rebecca Danger’s Blog Danger Crafts. It’s amazing what a little spare leftover yarn will turn into.
They are FINALLY done. This craft (as many that I undertake do) took WAY longer then anticipated. They turned out amazing….but many simplifications and modifications had to be made to finish them en mass.
Finally finished these at 1 am yesterday…going to be a sprint to finish everything by Christmas.
After three years we finally hit the slopes again. I love skiing and boarding…just wish it weren’t so pricey so we could go more.
As I’m wrapping up this years knitting projects (everything from gingerbread men to monsters) I thought I would post some of last years projects. I learned how to knit last summer and have been knitting ever since.
I saw this in Martha Stewart’s Craft Of The Day. Essentially you thread buttons on a pipe cleaner to create everything from snowmen and santas to reindeer. I decided to make snowmen (of course) and reindeer. Luckily these went together pretty fast as I had a lot of them to make.
Before the crafts come the decorations! This took way longer to set up than anticipated but the outcome was worth the effort (=.
Coming up next on the blog will be all of the Christmas decorations, crafts, cookies etc…but before we go there one last look at our First Fall in the house. Nature really put on an amazing show for us. Rob and I moved to our house in August, we are finally settling in and its starting to really feel like home.
I made these cards and decorated eggs at the same time as the owl cards. The eggs were so cute that I had a hard time eating them!
At Sheryl’s class I was so excited because I ordered an owl punch. I can’t wait to start using it! I love owls especially for cards; they make me happy and can be used for both masculine and feminine cards. This reminded me of all of the great owl cards that I created last Spring-even though it is nearly Christmas these cards are so springy and colorful that I wanted to share them with you on this very gray rainy snowy day. These were created using chipboard, patterned paper, ribbons, brads, stamps, markers, and decals….so much fun to make.
