I don't know about you guys, but there's something about Christmas that just makes me want to create! In our family we have a tradition where we make each other one homemade gift. For now it's just Brandon and me making all the gifts, but I think that next year we'll add Nicholas into the mix and then just draw names for the homemade gifts. I am pretty excited about what I made for Brandon, but just in the very slight chance that he'll read this post, I'll wait until after Christmas to show what I made. I am, however, making some fun things for Renae and Nicholas. Nicholas is finally going to get an I-Spy bag that I've been wanting to make him for a while now. I think he'll have fun with it. For Renae I am making some shoes and some hair things. That's where I need a little help, though! For her shoes, I am going to make some of these.
I want to make some cute hair bows to clip onto a headband and to use later on when she actually has hair, but I need some good bow tutorials. I did find these cute felt flower bows, which I'll make to coordinate with her shoes, I think. I have a cute flower sizzix die that will work to make a felt flower clippie.
I also am curious about where to find generic hair clips that I can cover in ribbon. I've looked at Meijer, Target, and Walmart for some, but haven't found them. Any ideas?
Sometime after Christmas I think I'll also make a cookie sheet advent calendar. They are really cute! So many fun projects and not enough hands to do them and hold/hold off my kids with!
Merry Christmas to you all!
