Crafting ...

Happy December!!  I've been stitching .. but nothing to share quite yet.  I do have some craft pictures to share though.  Monica (my daughter in law) and I have been crafting on Tuesday nights.  Here's a few pictures of some Christmas crafts we've been doing.

These ornaments we did this evening.  They were fun to make ... I think there's more of these in our future ... we got the ideas from Pinterest ... so addicting!
 Here's a shadow box that Monica made last week ...
 and here's a few more shadow boxes .... the one on the right is mine ... other two are Monica's ... I have a few more frames I want to do for gifts ... they are so much fun to make.


We almost have the house decorated for Christmas ... I just love this time of year ... and the smells of trees and candles burning ... decorating the tree with the kids ... wonderful memories tied up in all our decorations ... and lots of family time!

Hope all is well with all of you ... and hope you are having a stress free holiday time.  Remember, Don't Get Your Tinsel in a Tangle *smile*

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for the stitching friends ...

Your shadowboxes and ornaments are terrific! I want to try to make shadowboxes for next year. The pinterest craft my DD and I made this year is the one where you hang the ornaments from a frame and use it as your door wreath. We had fun and they came out great! (especially hers) What a great idea to have a craft night.
