Merry Christmas!

I love experiencing Christmas through Sayer's eyes. This year he's completely over the moon about Christmas & Santa Claus. It's going to be so fun to watch it all unfold in the next few days. In the meantime, I want to wish you a heartfelt Merry Christmas! Enjoy your traditions, families & hopefully some time to put your feet up. The best holiday present of all is getting to make some lovely friends through this crazy thing called blogging. Cheers!

KLT Printable Ornaments at Modern Kiddo...

Have you popped on over to Modern Kiddo lately? It's really no wonder why it's one of my favorite blogs. They are always coming up with such fun & crafty projects like the Modern Kiddo Ornament Party that's going on this week! Be sure to check out the klt:works Winter Forest Friends Ornaments when you are visiting. Now Lou Snail, Ollie Owl, & Dewey Long Legs can be a part of your holiday festivities. Just add some glitter or a ribbon & you've got yourself one sparkly holiday critter!  Hope you enjoy these ornaments. We are using them as gift tags at our house. Either way, it's a fun project for you & the kiddos...

A few special mentions: 
Due to popular request, Chris has made some very cool cardboard tree kits that are currently available at hutch studio. -A nice way to deal with all of the extra boxes laying around during the holidays, along with being a fun activity.

I also had some help on this project from one of the kindest holiday elves ever. This super star elf helped with the computer logistics- giving you a dotted line to follow & by made everything all slick and pretty. I believe she also injected some extra  warm & fuzzy holiday goodness into the ornaments too. So thank you my dear elf... 

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. I'm sure looking forward to slowing down & enjoying Christmas with my family.  Sayer's energy & excitement is infectious. Merry Christmas Everyone!

{Everyday Inspiration} four fun finds #7

The countdown has started...Christmas is just around the corner! Here are some last minute gift ideas. This collection of four fun things is inspired by my love of paper & making things.... 

1. The top row of Christmas Creatures is perfect for the procrastinator who likes to make their own gifts. If you visit  the mibostudio Etsy shop, you can buy all sorts of cute critters that are sold as a pdf file. Which means, no shipping, no waiting in line and the satisfaction that you made something special for your loved ones. Genius really... 

2. I've had my eye on these paper cut map prints from Famille Summerbelle for some time. They are a perfect way to pay tribute to your favorite city.

3. I just love paperdolls. I found some earlier & mentioned them on one of my first 4 fun find posts -and here is another sweet shop that makes them. Edith is my gal -but there are many to choose from. They come with clothes as well. 

4. "How to" kits are always a great thing to find. This little kit includes 4 favorite papercut design templates {Peter Rabbit, Alice in Wonderland, Pinnocchio, Little Red Ridinghood} from elsita Etsy Shop

What's your favorite new discovery this holiday season? I hope you are enjoying the hustle & bustle and all of the traditions & festivities that comes with it!
