Christmas has made it's way into our home, finally. We usually put up the tree and deck the halls the day after Thanksgiving, but this year we are a few days behind. The kids had loads of fun decorating the tree last night with Dad, while I sat and watched/directed. I told them that while they were at school the rest of the decorations would be in place.
I made this banner last week while the kids and my DH were watching "UP". I love that my craft space is connected with the family room, so I feel connected with the family, even when I am in the "crafting zone". I used some retired SU! paper from last year and mixed it with some new Making Memories chipboard letters. These are the same ones that I used on my "Spooky" banner. I love how versatile they are. I added some snowflakes, lace and buttons for extra detail.
I got a bee in my bonnet and decided that my daughter needed a Christmas banner in her bedroom as well, so I will share that when it is done. I am almost finished; I realized that it needed to be a bit longer to stretch the length of her shelf, so I have some addititons to make. I coordinated it to match her pink/green/ yellow bedroom and I am thrilled with how it is turning out.
I am almost finished with one of my sewing projects as well. I will post it on my "Thimbles and Thread" blog and post a link here as well. Thanks for fluttering by and Happy December!
