Christmas is six (SIX!) days away and I have much to blog about. Like, say, gifts I've made (although some can't be shared till after the holidays, lest we spoil some gift-giving surprises), stockings I finished long ago, baby sleep updates, haircuts (a few), and some recipes. I got a great start on my Christmas gift making this year, and it is a good thing, because Matt and I were asked to plan our church Christmas party (with the help of a great committee) so Christmas making went to the back burner while party planning was in full swing. The party was on Saturday so now I'm full steam ahead for Christmas.
I like to go all out with my gift wrap. We keep our Christmas giving small, and I think beautiful wrapping helps elevate the gifts that we do have. That, and having less gifts means it isn't as daunting to wrap each with bows, ribbons, etc. See the gift on the far left? Matt wrapped that one. Nice work, eh?

Here are the completed sweater stockings. I'll post a quick tutorial if anyone is interested.
A new decor addition- wrapping paper trees! I made these for the church party and they were EASY!!! Let me know if you want a tutorial.
