The Cutest Thing I Have Ever Made

I made these baby booties last month for a gift and just loved how they came out, they are so cute and a super quick knit. I might have to make a few more for some other friends now.
I found the perfect rose buttons at the store and I love how they finished them off just perfectly. If you are on Ravelry you can find the pattern for free here.

I have been busy knitting up a storm lately but will have to share all of those projects after Christmas!

Gift Wrapping

I am getting really excited for Christmas, it's hard to believe it is only 12 days away! I wanted to do something fun with my gift wrapping this year and saw a lot of cute ideas on the Internet. After many failed snowflake attempts that would make my Kindergarten teacher cry, I finally got the snowflake I was after thanks to this tutorial.

Top it off with some red bakers twine and it's finished. All I need now are a billion more snowflakes and I will be set to wrap everything once I get to my Grandparent's house for Christmas.

Bits and Pieces

I am still in love with the September kit from SC, Back 40. I am using every last little piece of it and a perfect example of that is this layout.
How do you use up your left over papers and embellishments?

December Daily - Day 1 & 2

Today I started to put together my December Daily album and I wanted to share the first 2 pages with you.

This first page started out looking like this:
I realized this wasn't going to work for my day one and what I had to save. I went to the Preschool Christmas show for the girls I babysit for, and all I had from the day was the program from the show. So I swapped out the first page for an envelope that you can see here.
After doing this project for a few years I am not afraid of getting rid of a page and making it something else that fits my day better.

Here is day 2
I am making a few gifts this year and wanted to highlight that on day 2.

Are you doing a December Daily album this year? I would love to see what you have done so far, link me up!
