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!
