paislee press journal cards as tags. i got alexander to write his own, which he surprisingly really enjoyed.
after a trip to the dentist with the girls, we headed downtown to get the last of the christmas presents, and i quietly went into a store on my own to get a few things for the kids. when we met up again, isabel wanted to see what was in the bag. "secrets", i said. we love surprises around here, so we like to know how not to spoil it for ourselves!
christian then took the kids back downtown to buy my christmas present, so i stayed home alone. with all the christmas presents taken care of, i decided to get started on a few handmade ones. you'd think i'd start on these earlier, but somehow knowing it doesn't matter if i finish or not is the incentive i need to get started. after digging through the scrap box, i had a bunch of soft, pretty fabrics picked out to made some doll quilts for isabel and lucy. it's my first attempt at quilting, so i kept it simple with long strips. halfway through cutting them, i figured i didn't need to be so precise. after all, they're doll quilts. still, it's fun to try something new! hopefully they'll enjoy them as much as i enjoy making them :)
how about you? are you making any gifts this year?
