I decided that this would be a good year to try something new, so I am going to try to post something new every day this month. At first I was debating whether this would add to my already long list, but I'm hoping that knowing I have to post something will help me stay on task with the homemade items that need to be finished on time. Wish me luck!
Since I already posted yesterday without even thinking about this, today is officially Day 2 of my countdown. Maybe I shouldn't call it a countdown... too much pressure in that name! How about the 25 Days of Accomplishment? Now that has a very positive sound!!
So here is today's item (and I'm cheating a little) that was actually finished before Thanksgiving. Every year my mom, her sisters, and all of the offspring get together for dinner. It is quite a large crowd now and we love visiting cousins that we normally wouldn't get to see. We also do a Sneaky Santa ornament exchange. Many of you already know that my girls started a tradition several years ago of making their own ornaments for the exchange. The Aunts love seeing what they have made for each year and the occasional battle for the handmade has been known to occur. Last year we actually recreated an ornament for each aunt so no one would feel left out!
DD#1 did a scan on Pinterest and knew immediately what she wanted to make. Fortunately, I had almost everything we would need. Only thing missing was the 'canvas', but during our girls day out, we found just the right things at a 'pickers' store.
