I've mentioned the Twelve Days of Christmas swap I participated in, and we've now finished opening and are able to post pictures, so here we go!
First, these are the gifts I made...luggage tags. I got to stretch my wings a bit because I've not sewn on vinyl before. I learned the trick of putting tissue paper on top of the vinyl to sew, because it would stick otherwise and not feed through. I also used quite a bit of my scraps of binding!
And here's the first set of items I received.
Here's the second set received.
Its nice to see the creativity these ladies come up with in making small little remembrances for next to nothing. My kind of people! I'm sure I'll be doing it again next year, along with several of the other ladies.
I also used directions from a PJ party class on journal covers, and came up with a few. We had a class on the same subject a few years ago, and those covers came out well, but these were quite a bit simpler.
I don't get the opportunity to watch Rhett and Ashlynn a whole lot, but I did a week ago when Robert and Angela went out. It was nice to be able to spend some time with them. We went to Rosa's Cafe for a light dinner.
Elise and I made some shaped sugar cookies Saturday night, and the kids got to get their hands into decorating.
December is also a good month for working puzzles. Elise has gotten big enough now that I feel comfortable working them in the living room when I watch her during the week. She's turning into quite the puzzle person! I'm glad she enjoys them. You can see her little monkey there in the corner. He helped too.
And to all...a good night.
