A Crafty Christmas!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I had scheduled several posts ahead for last weekend and I am just now getting back to writing new posts. My daughters are mighty crafty girls and I wanted to show you some of their wonderful creations today. I mentioned before having craft days with my girls. On one of our craft days recently, Daughter #3 made these adorable pillows.

She used her Cricut to make a freezer paper stencil to make this pillow top and filled it in with fabric paint.

She also made this adorable garland for her fireplace with help from Daughter #1 during one of our craft days.

Daughter #2 out in Arizona is very crafty too! She made hubby and I this incredible sign and gave it to us for Christmas.

Isn’t it adorable? The grand dogs on either end are her babies.

Daughter #1 is very crafty too, but she has been a bit busy with the new baby. She gave me these beautiful fat quarter bundles for Christmas. My first Cotton and Steel, love the colors!

And this Tina Givens bundle has some very interesting prints!

Daughter #3’s boyfriend gave me this quilt puzzle for Christmas. I’m so glad he joined the family, he will do puzzles with me and Daughter #3 even helps when he is here!

Mr. Wonderful gave me a new iPad, a useful gift for all my crafting for sure! I’ve had a mini for a while but I love the bigger screen and that I have more storage for pictures. It is how I do most of my blogging as well.

I am blessed, not just with gifts, but with kids that I can be crafty with and family that get me! I hope your Christmas and time with family was wonderful as well.

    Your daughters are indeed crafty. They had a good teacher! And I’m just a tiny bit envious that you have someone who will put puzzles together with you . . . I have to do them alone. And then I can’t stop and I stay up til the wee hours of the morning to find “just one more piece” . . .
