The latest......

As promised, I am finally posting some more crafts. It's been forever, but I didn't want to post any of these because they were Christmas presents.

And yes, I realize the liklihood of any of the people these were intended for was going to see them was very unlikely, but just my luck......


 This last one is my absolute favorite because of that cute little dog!


Here is my mantle that I decorated this year. I love how it turned out, but I already have plans to improve it next year.
For some reason I did not get a picture where you can see the whole fireplace. So this first picture shows the bottom with the two nativities and the stockings that were never hung up. (Santa still filled them.)


 Here you can see all the stuff I have on top.  We have a ton of stockings (Mine and The Husband's from when we were little, The Boy's first stocking, and our current stockings) that I was going to decorate with, but I ran out of time. 

Oh, look! Right there on the left. That would be The Husband's Fireman of the Year Award!!


Close up of one of the stocking holders. I bought all of these after Christmas the last two years and don't think I paid over $3.00 for any of them.


If you know me, you know that I like things to be symmetrical, but the unevenness of the ornaments hanging is exactly what I wanted. I love the randomness of them. All in all, it took me about 5 minutes to put this together and it has been my favorite decor this season. Like I said, I have plans to improve it next year and can't wait to put it up again!!

Cute snow people! What cartridge did you use to make them (and the little doggie!)? Also- Are those wood signs or Cardstock? They look great!

@Raskle - I used Doodlecharms for the snowmen and trees and Cricut Keystone for the names. I bought wooden plaques at Hobby Lobby and covered them with scrapbook paper. Very easy to make! Glad you like them.

Thanks, Everyone for your kind comments! I love them!!! :)
