Christmas Decor

My sweet little maltipoo, Cooper, who isn't too thrilled to be wearing antlers (made for a cat)!

This is my entryway this year. We scaled back and I decided not to put up some of the decorations, but I still love the tree!

A few more things...

These are the cute little tags that are going on my sparkling cider for my neighbor gifts today! The top pic is the picture of the back. Just a couple of little stamps from Stampin-Up (Tags til Christmas) and some Bazill cardstock cut in a Sizzix Big Shot with the die "Tags, Scallop Combo #2" and adhered using a Xyron sticker maker. Love that little thing! Then, I just used a Martha Stewart fine tip glue pen on the places I wanted glitter and then used some of Martha Stewart glitter! My husband says glitter is herpes of the craft world because once you use it it never goes away. He does kind of have a point! :)

These are my letters that are finally finished this morning. 8 sets of these found new homes, and I am glad to be done cutting them. :) However, I especially love the glass glitter on the "o". Everything needs a little bling!

Crafts I've been working on...

Just finished this cute green and cream scarf for my sister for part of her birthday present. My daughters and I decided the green color is just so vibrant. Love it so much! Unfortunately, the hat is not finished yet. I am still working on it, so it will have to get sent later. Sorry, Afton.

These NOEL letters I just love. This particular set is going to Sandy to live with my sister-in-law, Nyla. We copied them out of a pic in Pottery Barn catalog, (they were not for sale, they were a prop in a pic), & had a girls night with all the Power side girls, along with a fun friend who came to do glitter toes! It was an evening to remember. And out of it all, we took home a fun, easy decoration.

This is actually 1 of 4 aprons of this kind I am in the process of making. This particular one is popping into the mail to go live in Portland with my sister for the holidays (& forever). Hope she likes it! I picked up the fabric in Salt Lake in October and when I got home, went to my local store to get a little more so I could make a few more aprons but they were sold out! Sad! Glad I got it when I did! Thanks, Nyla, for taking me with you to the quilt shop! Yours is also coming tomorrow!
