Handmade Holiday Hoopla

This is what my fingers have been up to this weekend. At the bottom of the post you can see what even littler fingers have been up to. She's a great helper!

More felt food for Renae's kitchen collection.

Every kitchen needs a full gallon of milk!

Chex mix with felt ornament for Renae's Sunday school teacher.
(Ornament and top are based off of Redeemer Kids-kids program @ church)

Sammy finally gets a stocking this year.

The S is for Sammy in case you were wondering . . .

Renae needs an apron for all that cooking she'll be doing!

Velcro straps so she can "tie" it herself.

Pocket and top trim is from one of my old shirts. Cut. Glue. So pretty.

There are some girl cousins who are getting some recycled crayons from Renae!

Divide the colors . . .

Insert in oven . .

Melted beauty.

Didn't I tell you those little fingers are cute?

I actually have another post for this week to show you! Can you tell the semester is over and I actually have some more time for blogging picture updates? It helps that I have interesting stuff to blog about . . .

I love your bread and milk! You have become very skilled with felt and are motivating me to branch out. I saw the avacado on etsy and loved it but figured it was over my head. I'm going to have to call you so you can tell me how you cut a pattern for the milk. And, I want more details on the crayons. CUTE! It's pretty fun to "up-cycle". You can make really cool things! Can't wait to see Renae wearing her apron.

Julie. Love your Christmas gifts. Homemade is always the best because it comes from the heart...and usually from necessity. And you're teaching LP the same values!

I think it's a little chilly for Renae to be wearing a swimsuit....
