more crafting!

We had rainy days off and on all week so I got caught up on ornament making for the year. My goal is to make 1 ornament a month so my YOE tree will have some cute new ornaments.

Here is a birdie I made using attic24's tutorial. In my opinion, you can never have too many birdies on your tree.


And this little house was made using a pattern from Fa La La La Felt. I pretty much did everything wrong...wrong tan color, wonky window, too few scallops...but that doesn't bother me. I've learned to not let imperfections bug me!


this is a little rabbit inspired by Bijou's Whimsy. Her work is amazing.


and this is a bunny inspired by something I saw on etsy. It has a thick coat of gloss on it which made it really hard to photograph but you get the idea. I simply couldn't take any photos of it without it looking a bit blurred. ( photography is NOT one of my strengths!)

When I carted all my supplies back into the sewing room, I saw Leo and immediately thought of the storybook " Princess and the Pea." He looks so cozy on his little tower of kitty beds!


sleep well, sweet prince...

Oh, how delightful! I'm so glad I popped in early for the Mad Tea Party 2012. What cute ornaments. Wouldn't it be fun to have a children tea party centered around making unique Christmas tree ornaments of cute teapots and tea cups - as part of the tea party fun. Thanks for a fun idea!
