more crafting…

Standard

We had rainy days off and on all week so I got caught up on ornament making for the year.  My goal is to make 1 ornament a month so my YOE tree will have some cute new ornaments.

Here is a birdie I made using attic24’s tutorial.  In my opinion, you can never have too many birdies on your tree. 

And this little house was made using a pattern from Fa La La La Felt.  I pretty much did everything wrong…wrong tan color, wonky window, too few scallops…but that doesn’t bother me.  I’ve learned to not let imperfections bug me!

this is a little rabbit inspired by Bijou’s Whimsy.  Her work is amazing.

and this is a bunny inspired by something I saw on etsy.  It has a thick coat of gloss on it which made it really hard to photograph but you get the idea.  I simply couldn’t take any photos of it without it looking a bit blurred. ( photography is NOT one of my strengths!)

When I carted all my supplies back into the sewing room, I saw Leo and immediately thought of the storybook ” Princess and the Pea.”  He looks so cozy on his little tower of kitty beds!

sleep well, sweet prince…

Here fishy fishy

Standard

Dean and I have had aquariums for YEARS.  I had several smaller tanks when I was in college but when we started dating, we bought several large tanks.  Then after the kids were born, we downsized….but then…as luck would have it, a friend offered us a 60 gallon tank and we couldn’t refuse. 

We set it up and filled it with fish from our other two tanks…and it is gorgeous!
