Special Gift from Mama

 I don't have much time for myself these days, but I have managed to do a few Christmas projects since Lillie has  come home.  It feels nice to craft again.  When I was pregnant, I was too tired or had too much going on.  This past year has been super, super busy for us!
These aren't the best ornaments, but I threw this together for the dogs this year.  We found house chipboard at Hobby Lobby.  The house had a chimney, but Justin cut it off turning it into a perfect shape for a dog house! 
For Lillie, I made this bird security blanket.  While I was still pregnant, I looked for months in stores and online to buy one for her.  When I couldn't find one, I decided to make one.  Little did I know that I would be able to give my girl this special gift for her first Christmas!
The bird toy was a stroller toy that had rings and other doo dads hanging from it's wings.  I just cut them off, cut a slit in the middle of the blanket, sewed the bird in and added the ribbon.  I love the way it turned out and I hope she loves it too!
