Feelin Crafty

It's true, I have been having an itch to sew, craft, change things in my house, etc. Lucky for me Crew had to have a stocking for his first Christmas so I decided to make one for each of us. I love how cheap you can make stuff for! I made three stockings for the price you can buy one in a store. Plus I still have enough fabric to make more for future kids so they will match. I wanted stockings with a classic but slightly modern look. I played around with some fabrics and this is what I got!

I tend to get bored of decor quickly so I decided to make these stockings with two different sides. One side with color and pattern for a fun, modern look and the other a simple neutral burlap.

I didn't get them finished this year but I will add some red rope with embellished name tags dangling on the end to this side for a pop of color and so they wont be so boring. However, I like the neutral classic look because I will be able to use them for a long time, even if I change my decor

They were so fun to make but the craft itch still isn't out of my system so I am thinking pillows next. Stay tuned...

The holidays are even more exciting with our little munchkin around! I love that we have had so much time to spend as a family and to focus on the things that really matter in this life. We hope all our friends and loved ones had wonderful holidays as well. Here are our highlights.

Crew had his first visit to Temple Square. He was mesmerized by all the lights.

Then he had his first visit with Santa. Kudos to my baby boy for not having a freak out!

He was such a happy boy Christmas morning...he knew it was a special day!
