Have a Merry Christmas!

Well, I didn't do it all this year. Here's a few projects that sat waiting, hoping to get finished. Now I'm out of time.
But I was able to get all the neighbor gifts out. Famous Franson Carmel Popcorn and wrapped candy bars with a free printable tag.
And finish my first Christmas quilt! I think it turned out great. I did the quilting by myself, used a free pattern (you can find HERE!) and used a bright red sheet on the back that I bought at Target for 7$. I love saving money!

p.s. That plain red is wonderfully soft minkie pieced into the quilt. I love to pet it.
And lastly, I have to admit I didn't actually finish these hobby horse reindeer this year, but I thought you might like to see them anyway. One of my (and they kids) favorite Christmas decorations/toys in our home.

Christmas Eve is tomorrow so I doubt I'll get anymore done before the 25th (except the laundry, I'm trying really hard to get it finished up so I don't have to think about it this weekend). I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday Season!

A few of my favorite things...

I am in love with these paper dolls! She'll custom make you a darling little boy or girl to look like YOUR darling little boy or girl. She also has lots of different outfit lines to choose from. I have been cutting and laminating for weeks now so both my girls can get a set for Christmas. It's been so much fun! You can click on any of these pictures to take you to the creators blog.
This site is full of the cutest little gnomes I've ever seen. I have a thing for gnomes but I try to keep my collection small because my husband thinks it's kind of weird. I have also purchased her latest book. It's full of wonderful little embroidery patterns for gnomes, animals, cupcakes and more.

This is my favorite quilt right now, and I get to stare at it every time I go to work! It was created by the owner of Pine Needles. I can't wait to get started on making my own.

I couldn't list my favorite things without mentioning these 3 little people! We took a trip to Temple Square the other night. It was sooooooooooooo cold! Still without a camera (hint hint Santa) so these pictures are pretty dark.
And lastly, a picture for my favorite time of year... CHRISTMAS!
