Twine Wrapped Monogram Ornament

I love this simple twine wrapped letter ornament.  You can find the tutorial on Becoming Martha.  Would be fun to do the kids' initials.

Santa Beard Advent Calendar

 Need an easy advent countdown?  Here's one that you can make with everything you already have at home!
 Santa beard countdowns!  We found the idea at Gluesticks.  Their advent calendar is below.

 We used red glitter cardstock that I had for the hat and nose, added cotton balls for the hat's pompom, and used a fuzzy white pipe cleaner for the hat's brim.  My son got very crazy with the lines!
 We just had to add a pink gem bling for my daughter's Santa.  Just HAD to!
 My daughter's Rudolph drawing.  She's always at it!
My husband adding the star to the top of our tree.  We changed it to a lighted Moravian star that my mother in law bought for us last year.  I LOVE IT!  It's perfect.

The star really adds so much to the tree now.

Yoga Bag with FREE Pattern

 I made myself this yoga bag and I love it.  I was using one that I had made but it wasn't very fun and I love this fabric.  I think it's Amy Butler's Daisy Chain.  I added appliqued circles on the outside pocket.  The pocket is divided into two and fits my flip flops perfectly!
 I added my fabric label to the outside.  I still have a ton of these from when I made them last.  They are coming in handy!
 Pretty coordinating aqua/navy dots for the insides.    The yoga bag pattern I used was the FREE Nigella Yoga Bag from Amy Butler and can be found here along with a lot of other great free patterns.

Western Christmas anyone?

Horse Head Lime Bandana Skirt Set

 I've been busy with bandana skirt set orders on etsy.  I really love making them.  A custom lime bandana set can be found here.




And I love the pink cowboy boots I got at Target.  The set can be worn year round with black leggings underneath.  So fun for a western birthday party.
