Christmas Cards

So I started making Christmas cards for the two shops that sell my cards. Here are the ones I have finished so far. Hopefully I'll be able to get some time to make some for myself!!;)

Pink Poinsettias

Happy Santa

Gold Tree

Cute Elf

Holiday Banner

Thanksgiving Table

So at the beginning of the month, our RS activity was given by the 1st counselor in RS. She is an Interior Designer. She had set up a table and chairs in the cultural hall. She had it all decked out in decorations. She then changed the decorations 4 times to give us some ideas for decorating our tables for the holidays with things that we either have, or that are really inexpensive. The idea is to make the holiday feel special, not just like any other day. So, I decided that I was going to try this. Make Thanksgiving dinner at least look special, since it was just the 5 of us for dinner. ;( Here's my 1st attempt. Total cost: $8

Tall vases-$1 each, Green plates-$1/4, pumpkins and gourds-$.50 each
Had: lemons, candles,ribbon, wine glasses

I took wine glasses, turned them upside down, put lemons in the bottom, and a candle on the top.

I took ribbon and just wound it around the vases, plates, and glasses.
Colors: Rose, Yellow, Olive, and Orange

Not too bad for my 1st attempt. I forgot to get a picture with all of us sitting there!

Fun Pictures

Kayleigh found this cute hat at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago. Cameron was being weird and put some fun 80's glasses on with it. I LOVED it, although Cameron thought I was making fun of him. Poor guy couldn't stop crying, even after he realized we weren't teasing him. So, here we all are!! Even the dogs got wrangled into it!!


Cameron, tears and all.


Chris. Scary, right?
