Don’t worry. I didn’t forget about Christmas. I have a pop-up greeting card for that too. See you Saturday at the Pecan [...]

how to store holiday garlands

It’s the last day of 2011! Crazy.

I spent most of the day Thursday packing up our Christmas decorations. I always have trouble with my berry garlands — the berries get all stuck together and smashed when I store them — and I have a lot of garlands.

But then I had an idea (all by myself without [...]

handmade gifts: wooden people

When I stumbled upon this tutorial, I knew my 2-year-old must have a little family of guys for Christmas. Now, these guys go every where with him – even to nap time (they ride in a little bucket).

Remember how I made this advent calendar last week? And thought of these ideas? Well, I [...]

Gather your materials:

- chartpak colorless blender marker (you can buy these [...]

christmas advent calendar

I just made and hung my advent calendar for this year. I decided not to unpack my calendar from last year (you can see pics here) for no good reason – just didn’t want to. So I made this one using a brown paper bag and construction paper. I cut open the bag and then folded [...]

our 2009 christmas cards

I love Christmas cards. I love making them. I love receiving them in the mail. I love looking at the photos. I love reading the letters. I love everything about them.

When I opened the box with our Christmas cards the other day, I started giggling. They are just what I was hoping for! I was inspired [...]
