Crafting makes this Mama very happy. It was a priority for me to get some “me” time for holiday crafty fun. Many of the projects had helpers along the way, but thanks to Daddy and Nene the projects were all completed.
After catching up with my dear friend, Jen, I was once again inspired by her craftiness. She shared these adorable serving dishes she bought at IKEA and showed me just how easy it was to make them. I headed out that week to buy the letters, pens and even made the longer trip to IKEA with both kids to make this happen.
This is Cooper’s third Christmas and the third year I have said I would make him a stocking. It finally happened and I am very happy with how these simple and cheerful stockings turned out. Now we all have handmade stocking, I made Rob’s and my sister made mine.
A handprint ornament with Nicholas was on my must do list for this year. We did this for Cooper too and I love having a personalized first Christmas ornament for both of them. This project waited until Nene arrived so we could have three sets of adult hands to make it happen. We also made a footprint ornament so both boys would have a set marking this special holiday.
Somehow their amazing Auntie Kari found time to make the boys their very own felt tree. This project was on my list for two years, so I was very excited to receive a completed one in the mail.
