Homemade Christmas Ornaments

23 Nov

I have been dying to make these suckers and I finally got the chance!! I think they turned out pretty cool 🙂

 On a completely different note today has been one of those days where nothing gets accomplished. I am starting to think I am having a sleeping problem because every other night I wake up in the middle of the night and can’t go back to sleep for a couple of hours no matter what I try.. it makes for a very lazy day. Instead of sitting around wondering how I am going to make it through the day doing as little as possible I went to the mall with my mom! Got some fresh air, some excercise, and it gave E just enough time out of the house to want a loooong nap when we got home 🙂 While she was napping I finished the second sleeve of her sweater that I am crocheting and started working on the jacket part of it. It’s exciting how it’s all coming together and I can’t wait until it’s finished!! I’ll update with pictures later.

Tomorrow I plan on staying home all day and if I get a full nights sleep I might be crafting it up! I found these new paper gift boxes to off of another blog that I want to use for Christmas candy, which reminds me of the two recipes I showed in my previous post. I made the chocolate & almond one and lets just say it didn’t turn out exactly how I pictured it.. It might be exactly what it is supposed to taste like but I think I am going to be changing up the recipe to make it a little more tasty!! I’ll let you know how trial number two goes. The next one on my list to make isn’t exactly a Christmas cookie but it looked soooo good I couldn’t resist. Hopefully those don’t disappoint!

Well that’s all for now.

Love Always,

J
