Christmas Present Scrapbooks

These are little scrapbooks I made Tony's nieces and nephews for Christmas. Hopefully this coming Christmas I can get something done for my side of the family, since Kristina finally gave me a link to her pictures!

I'll start with Emma's. Her favorite thing in the world is Elmo, so of course her's was Sesame Street themed. (When I followed a theme at all)

Finally Some Pictures

This is just something I made to go on the Valentine's bulliten board at school. (That's my favorite new children's book character "Pigeon" by Mo Willems)

I made a scarecrow back in September. He's sticking his tongue out so he won't scare the mailman ;)

These were my first attempt at a sewing project by myself (It was a lot easier when you used to tell my how to do it Mommy! I need to come have some lessons sometime)

This was this year's big project. It took longer, but it turned out better too :)

This was Kristina's Christmas present. Its a plaque that I scrapbooked to match her house. She said I should sell them, but I can't think of any marketing plans, so that's definately on a back burner :)

I got tired to chasing after barrets that fell through this basket that I kept them in, so I made a liner for it. Much harder than I thought to get the rounded edges right.

I drew Aunt Joyce's name for the Chancellor Christmas this year, so this is what I made her.

I finally got around to making curtains for the dining room. There are ropes between the blue and white (you can't see them in the picture) to look pretty, and you can use them to tie back the curtains. Very convenient :)

New Blog!

I've decided to follow suit from Rosalie and Kris and others, and start posting some pictures of crafty stuff. I'm not near as good as they are, but some stuff has turned out kind of cute. I've done a lot more scrapbooking than anything else, but I'm starting to get into sewing some too.

However, the internets not working well right now, so pictures will be forthcoming, I promise!
