another crafty day

We went to the Santa Clause Parade this morning. It was very cold, but very fun! It left us all feeling like we have entered the Christmas season. So can you guess what I did as soon as we got home? You got it, crafty crafty!

I saw a cute tutorial for these little trees at the small object and I had to try it. I decided to use my serger instead of a zig zag stich on the edges and I think it worked out pretty well. I am very excited about the rolled edge I learned to do with my serger. When I showed Rich, he laughed. I think it was a good laugh, he said they were cute, and then just like a man, he said "what are they for?" I think I am going to make them into ornaments with a little ribbon on the top. What do you think? DOn't laugh!

The girls and I made these wreaths with all the scraps of wool from the slippers I made. They had fun and I think we'll make some more.

Oh, I can't beleive it's that time of year again!

Wow! Jen you are super "crafty"! What a great mom you are! I need to channel my inner crafty (if one even exists) soon! I think Ethan will dig it! Strong work, I love the little trees by the way!!

Wow! You really ARE crafty! I know what they are for .... to impress him with your mad crafting skills. To show him what an amazing woman he married. To wow him with your cleverness and ingenuity. And it worked! He liked them, just didn't understand their full significance. Ha, haaa, you sneaky temptress, you! And oh, yeah, they are really cute, too. And putting ribbons on is a good idea. Also, they will look cute on mantles or shelves, and are childproof and work after Christmas. Wow. Not bad.

But those wool wreaths!! I never would have thought of that, and they are so sweet! They look really good. Are you going to sell some of them?

These little trees are wicked cute! Might be just the type of nonbreakable ornaments I need with the crazy little kittens that live in my house. Thanks for posting about my giveaway today!
