A few weekends ago, Mom and I were working on some Christmas gifts. We had the saws, paint, drill, wood glue and nails out- working away. Being as creative as we are, we never stay focused on the task at hand. Therefore, I whipped up this sign with some scrap wood and spay painted wooden letters from Hobby Lobby. It fits perfectly on the outside of my house and I made it just in time for Christmas. There was already an existing screw in the brick and it's located in just the right place. Doesn't the gold look great with the rustic wood?

A good friend of mine asked if I would whip up a few stockings to match her Dr. Suess red and turquoise Christmas themed decor. I've created my own stocking pattern that I use time and time again. I was super satisfied with the way they turned out. I mixed and matched different fabrics so they're all the same but still different.
Isn't her set up FABULOUS?!!!

I know the pictures of this aren't that good but I wanted to go ahead and show it off anyway .... I've been working on two bedroom sets for two little girls that have a Jack and Jill bathroom. The bedding sets are complete and we mixed fabric from each room to make the ruffled shower curtain. I can't wait for the home to be finished so I can get pictures of the two bedrooms and the bathroom. It's all going to be amazing!

I can't seem to quit making these ruffled dish towels. They're super easy and pretty cheap to make. I feel like they're a decent handmade gift that's so much better than a bath salt or something cheesy. Here are a few I whipped up for Christmas.
As you know I'm an Aggie, so I made one for myself for football season. The orange UT one was for Mrs. Rooster since she just built a new house.

Christmas is sure sneaking up on me this year!! I didn't even have time to post all of my Halloween crafts that I made...I'll just have to save them for next year. Several years ago I made some burlap stockings and never really did anything with them. I decided to decorate them for my boyfriend's sister and I made a Hello Kitty stocking for her God daughter.
Stay tuned for some Dr Suess themed stockings that are red and turquoise!
