December is my favorite month of the year. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some sunshine and long days but December… twinkling lights, bright eyed kiddos, Bing Crosby singing to me everywhere I go… too magical not to love ;) I’ve also made it tradition to take December off each year (took two years of crazy photography holiday seasons to make me run and never look back. highly recommended). So, while there is always catch up & those ‘exception’ shoots, I really get to just play & do whatever I want this month. Crafty creations have been the time passer the last week or two so I thought I’d share some of it!
We moved this year so we have a different area to decorate (plus doing the same thing year after year just isn’t very fun) so the kids and I created some new garland for the mantle… we figured out how to make these cool snowflakes (saw one at the antique mall and instantly came home to google/make my own)… and we saw these cool little trees at the craft store- easy kid project…
I found a tutorial online how to make these beads out of origami paper… my own little take on it with extra ribbon and buttons sitting around the house…
they look WAY cuter on… very Anthro meets Crewcuts :)
One of our sets at the 777 Kids Shootout will be a tea party/forest/ZoZo creation of awesome decor so I decided to try my hand at making some props for that… Not perfect but I felt a great sense of accomplishment making them without a pattern!
And lastly… I am taking a leap and sending some of my work to one of my favorite companies (can I get a simultaneous fingers crossed from everyone… pleeeeease!!) so I created this little antique box, filled it with my images-candy-good vibes ;)
k- off to start on some more… on a roll and I think I have 9 shoots I need to be making stuff for… maybe I should be blogging an assistant for hire position!
Happy Holidays everyone!!!! ~S
