Toddler trouble and St George Utah

I find My Fairy hiding on the kitchen floor eating chips...Thought it was funny !

I would like to thank the manufacturers of markers who lately make markers who really wash off !

Yes she did that ! LOL And it washed off !

We left cold and snowy Salt lake city for Sunny St. George...

The hot tub felt good...It was raining though in St George so the inside pool and hot tub are nice !

My boy is under water in this picture...

We have not had a real vacation for 3 years and the few days in St George, hubby has to work. So, i am not very happy right now and very tired.
There will be better days...
Big hugs to you ! Any plans for the New Year ?

I wanted to make a Baptism Journal...
Got this picture of my boy ...

Then, i find this old notebook...

Chose DCWV Linen closet paper...

Chose the 2 papers i liked with picture...

Got some Canvas from Home Basics...

Cut 2 long pieces taking some thread off the edges.
Tied and glued the two ends behind the cover front.

Used my EK success punch...

Made a tag, punched a hole too.
Stamped my boy initial...

Used some twine to attach the tag on the bow.

Date and name...Ready to hold all the memories of the day !

I placed this picture from the Graphic Fairy in the first page with my name and his name.

I think this is a great idea for any event in a boy's life. 
I love the blues and the black and white picture...

Happy Birthday !

Every year Santa brings really pretty gifts. I like to match the tree colors and use pretty ribbon and an ornament for each. I choose cheap but pretty ones. Here $1 birds and butterflies from walmart.
The ribbon, i always get on sale. I use ribbon i can use in the tree the next year or that i can use in crafts during the year.

Christmas morning ...

Happy Birthday Jesus !

Crafts and stuff

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, 
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. 
It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. 
And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. 
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. 
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. 
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”

Teaching the girls how to make fabric flower hair clips for friends...

And stuff...

Merry Christmas !

Shabby Chic Christmas cookie cutter ornaments

I used cookie cutters that i don't use, you can find them at the dollar store too. Use the metal ones.
I used a DCWV paper.
Glued the paper with school glue on the thicker part of the cookie cutter.
Make a hole also with the puncher...or leave a space.

When dry, cut the shape out.
Use a craft knife for hard to reach spots.

Hang with a ribbon.

Here is a star...
