Christmas Gifts

For Christmas I wanted to make my nieces little activity bags for church.  I am not all that experienced when it comes to sewing but I think these turned out pretty cute.

Elder Flat Stanley

I sent my brother, who is on a mission in Mexico, a Flat Stanley.  Did anyone else do this when they were young?  My brother really enjoyed Flat Stanley when he was little so I thought I would bring back some of the fun by sending an Elder Flat Stanley.

Christmas Beauty

Do any of you out there just love the Christmas Story?  It is one of my favorite classic Christmas movies.  When we were younger my parents would drive us around to look at Christmas lights every year.  We would get in our jammies, snuggle up in blankets in the car, sip our hot cocoa, and listen to Christmas music on the radio while we went scouting for some awesome Christmas lights.  One year we were driving through a neighborhood and a house had a leg lamp in the window instead of a Christmas Tree.  My Dad LOVED it!  He talked about getting one for years but never did.  This year the ol' man turned 50 so my Mom decided it would be fun to suprise him with a leg lamp they could use for Christmas.  I was given the assigment to make him a card and this is what I came up with.  I found the leg lamp picture online and cut it out.  Then I made it look like it was sitting in the window.  My Dad really loved it!  It did turn out pretty cool.

You can't really tell in the picture but there is clear plastic in front to make it look like a window.

Rough Times, sweet card

My Dad came up on some rough times so I decided to make him a sweet card since he loves golf so much. I have to say that it turned out pretty cute!
