Merry Christmas!

I am sorry for not writing. It has been hard to find words. I have been holding my kids closer and spend more time with my family, texting less and enjoying the small things in life.
I am back and so excited about sharing more with you!
 The girls and I did finish their Christmas Dolls with the Advent Calendar. I have to admit we got into a grove and finished them early. I wish, I had made one for me too.
My oldest, Miss Penguin, really got into the details of her doll.
She added a heart name tag on the doll's skirt.
I thought that was so smart and it was all her idea. Of course little sister had to have that too.
I made a few handmade Christmas gifts I wanted to share... 
I etched this Pyrex pan with a product called Etch All. I used my Silhouette to cut out the decal design, placed the vinyl where I wanted the design to go and then placed Etch All cream over it for 15 minutes. Wash the surface and you have your design on the glass. Here is a great tutorial on how to DIY. This was so easy!!! I wish I figured this out before Dec. 24th. Hehehe:)
I made this scarf by double knitting it on a rectangular loom. It was so soft! 
For Christmas, I received Boots! Not just one pair, which is all that I asked for, but two pair (brown and black)!!! I had no idea how much it can help your wardrobe!!! I can wear my spring time skirts/dresses with leggings/hose and layers. They are so warm! Now, I can make myself some boot cuffs, smiles! I think I might sew a few more Schoolhouse Tunics and Tova Tops too. Our December giveaway will be coming soon so look out for it. 
Enjoy the small things in life!

There's nothing better than enjoying our kids and the "small" things in life. Merry Christmas!
