It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas!

The cutest of all Santa's helpers!
I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving, mine was great! I have been busy trying to get the house ready for Christmas. Here is a picture of my tree in the den and my mantle. Haven't got the outside done yet but it will get there. I have decided not to put up as much as I have in the past. I want to craft more over my break:) Here are some pictures of my decorations. My boys put all the ornaments on the tree, I let them do all of them this year. They did a pretty good job!

Christmas Wreath

Here is the wreath I made for my classroom. I just used a wire clothes hanger and shatter proof ornaments I bought (1/2 price!) at Hobby Lobby. Super Easy and took me about 20 minutes. Keep Crafting!

The Kids of Twokidsmom

Alan & Ian (with Gizmo:)
Here are my two boys - two of the main reasons I do what I do! Alan is 14 and Ian is 11. Can you believe my 14 year old is 6 feet tall! I love them both:)

Advent Trees

I made these cute advent trees for my neice. Each number is a door that opens to a little compartment with a little treat to enjoy each day. Once again I used my handy dandy Silhouette Cameo to cut the svg files from The paper I used is Comfort, Peace, Joy from K&Company, and brads from WR Memory Keepers. I love little things like this to make the holidays memorable. Talk to you soon. Keep Crafting!

Thanksgiving Wreath

Here is the wreath that I made for my classroom door. I try to keep a wreath for each season. The leaves are a svg file from that I cut out on my handy dandy Silhouette Cameo:) I used fall paper from K&Company and polka dot ribbon to make a bow. I really do love this time of year. Keep Crafting!

I'm Thankful

Here is a little something I made for my wonderful classroom assistant to show how thankful I am for all that she does. I really couldn't do my job without her! The crate is a svg file from the caramel apple file at and I cut it using my handy dandy Silhouette Cameo - I LOVE that thing! I used some fall paper from K&Company and filled it with goodies I know she loves. Have a Happy Thanksgiving & Keep Crafting!

My first entry!

                      Welcome to my blog! I briefly had a blog with another web domain, but decided to switch to blogger. It seems a little more user friendly, we'll see. I hope you will leave comments and let me know what you think about anything I post here. I wanted to have a place to share some of the things I create and hopefully you will share your ideas also. I will be posting some things from Halloween because they were lost on my other site. Other than that I will try to keep things current. Until then, keep crafting!
