Our Homemade Christmas

Five more days until Christmas!!!! Tomorrow I’ll be sending out my Christmas cards + my sister’s package. About time, huh? But ya know, I think it’s not just us. So far we’ve only gotten two cards this year. It must be a crazy year for many!

Today, while M and dad’s away, I managed to do this:

M's Christmas Gift Tag

I made the tag myself in Illustrator and saved it as always to use in my KNK but I don’t know what happened my KNK couldn’t recognize the SVG file and when I imported the image into my software the file got all crazy and didn’t cut right. I got this tag but I had to trim a part that wasn’t suppose to be cut but it did. So I can’t share the tag file until I figure this out. The rest of the tag was done using some My Mind’s Eyes die-cuts. Really easy!

Check out that wrapping paper. Isn’t it pretty? I got it at the dollar store! I love looking for wrapping paper there because the last few years I’ve been finding huge rolls of pretty paper AND they’re made in the U.S.A.!!!

Before I go I want to share this…

Jovie Sitting

I was able to craft while Jovie’s awake because she’s been sitting on her own. Still a tad wobbly but she’s doing well. She didn’t fall one bit while I made the tag!

Then a few of our ornaments… once upon a time the Christmas tree used to be mine. I decorated, I purchased whatever’s on it, etc. Every year, after Christmas, I’d buy a new ornament and it’s usually from World Market. Now it’s not mine anymore and I couldn’t be happier and every year we add on to the tree and they’ve been handmade.

I hope your holiday preparation is wonderful!

  1. Such a cute tag, I love the snowman! Yes I agree, everyone is running late with their xmas cards, I feel very good about sending mine last wk, hehe. Your xmas tree is adorable! Very cool that most of the ornaments are handmade. We dunn have a tree this yr, dunno, I have issues with tress cuz for the longest time my mom didn’t set one up when we were growing up, now I hear she has one this yr, maybe I feel the same way like her about trees.
