Wrapping Paper Upcycled Pendant Necklaces

I found these at So You Think You're Crafty today. They are pendants made from wrapping paper tubes and wrapping paper. GENIUS! Very easy to make. Meg from Mega Crafty did a guest post on how to make them and you can find the tutorial here.

Melted Crayon Art

I've seen this art design a lot of places recently. This one is found here and she describes how to do it, but basically you glue crayons onto a canvas, use a hair dyer or hot air gun, and melt the crayons. I think it's pretty cool!

Rudolph

My son got this Rudolph nose at kindergarten. It's so great! My son pulled my daughter around on his sleigh (AKA firetruck) since he was Rudolph.



Hope you're enjoying some Christmas fun!!!

Charlotte Dress by Mama Stellato

I made this dress for my daughter this month and I have to say I love it. Love the material and the pattern was wonderful! It's by Mama Stellato and called the Charlotte Dress. You can find it here in her etsy shop.

It was DEFINITELY one of those days with my model. A very silly day and these are the best photos I could get. The rest were depressed and fake smiles. At least in these she is happy.

She likes it since I put some pink in it, but I'm sure she's thinking there is too much blue. Oh well.

The back ties in a big bow. It's really a great dress for fall or winter and this is actually the second one I made. I haven't gotten photos of the first one yet. But a pretty simple pattern and written really well.

I took this photo tonight after being inspired by Lil Blue Boo's post on taking photos of Christmas lights. Lisa's photo on there is gorgeous, and I was happy to get a good one of my son with our beautiful tree!



Here's one my husband took of the kids and me. LOVE....... Our house is now decorated and I'm loving every moment.
