Pink Knit Hat

I have been trying to go through and knit projects with yarn I have in my stash, to make room for now things I buy or crafting items I'm going to buy, or presents! So every time I finish a project and I know I'm not going to use it, I post it to friends and family to see if anyone wants to buy it. This is one such project. =]
 Fuzzy and pink! 

It's Moda Dea Tutu yarn. I can't find more for sale in this color anywhere, but I had JUST enough! 

And this is my friend Tiffany, who bought it. She loves it! =]

Christmas Presents!! (That I made!)

This year, I vowed to make almost all the Christmas (and birthday) presents that the hubs and I were going to give. So far, I have pretty much stuck to my plan! So here are the presents I made this year! =]

A sign, painted for my dad - the name of his company.

 For my mother and father in law, they love Scrabble!
 An earring holder, for my sister.

 A bamboo scarf, for my mom.

 Penguin stuffed animal, for my brother. (inside family joke)

 Angry Birds Bowling!!! =] Yep, I made it! 

Hand-painted dodge ball, hand-painted 2 liter bottles! For my other brother. This is my mom's favorite gift, she loves homemade gifts and she is still ranting and raving about this one. (In a good way!)

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season! =]

Christmas Decorations!!

I love Christmas!! Every year I so much look forward to putting up our tree and busting out the decorations! So here are a few pictures of the tree I decorated (Brian puts up the tree and puts on the lights, I decorate it!) and some other things I made for our house.

 O Christmas Tree!! With our gate that we bought (for cheap!) to go around it, to keep our crazy pets out of it, with our stockings.

 Without the gate and stockings..

I took a bunch of our extra ornaments and fills 3 vases we have with them, and TADA! Centerpieces! They would be on our dining room table, if it was finished yet, but it's not.. =] 

And this is our wreath, that I MADE!! It's hanging on our front door, with an A for our last name! =]

Next year I hope to have a few other decorations around our house, but this is more than enough for now! I love our decorations and will sad for Christmas to be over and we have to take them down. =]

Some Christmas Presents! =]

I gave some Christmas presents a little early (my favorite 8 year old, Maddi, is spending Christmas with her dad so she got her presents early, along with the rest of her family!). So I will be showing the presents that they all got from me, plus Macee's first birthday is today, so I'll show her present too. =]
This is an old frame, turned into an earring holder for Maddi. 
This is an old frame, turned into a Sisters picture frame for Maddi.
This is an old frame, turned into a Jackpot frame for Mike&Becky, with 3 spaces for their 3 little girls! 
This is a pink and purple tutu for Makenna.
This is a pink and purple tutu for Macee.
These are matching hairbows for Mak and Macee. The top and bottom are Mak's. The middle is Macee's.
And this is Macee's birthday present! They are shapes cut out of different colors of felt, so she can learn shapes and colors! 
 Maddi, being silly!!
She loved them both!! 

Macee Lorynn!! 
Action shot! So cute! 
 Makenna Grace!
She loved her "skirt and hay-bows" as she called them! Wore them from bath to bed! =]

So these are the presents I have made so far!! After Christmas I will post pictures of gifts for my in-laws, my parents, my brothers, my sister and what I bought for Brian. I'm also about to post another entry with pictures of our tree and a few decorations. =]
