Can you tell that Courtney and I are getting into serious Christmas modes at our houses?!?! One of my friends was out visiting last weekend from the city and compared my husband and I to Mr. and Mrs. Claus, because we seriously love this time of year so much!! One idea that I started last year, thanks to the wonderful knowledge of other bloggers, is a Christmas Book Countdown!!!!!
I just wanted to share a really cute idea that I did with Aiden a couple years ago. I just pulled it out of our Christmas boxes and LOVE it as much as I did two years ago...
His footprint made a Christmas tree, while his handprint made a Rudolph. It's on plain canvas and I made a simple border around the edge!
What an easy craft for little ones...and a great item to gift or keep:)

I love finding festive clothes for the girls around the holidays. Maggie is really into Christmas this year & loves wearing anything related to the season. This year I was determined to make some shirts for the girls. So far I have made these two. They were both easy & came out really cute. Be sure to check out the "freebie" at the bottom of the post.
Christmas Tree Ribbon Shirt
I saw a few ideas on Pinterest, combined them, added a few ideas of my own & came up with this:
I had some gold glittery buttons (no idea why) & you all know I can put ric rac on just about anything.
This was actually really easy to do & I am making a few more right now as gifts. I used a sewing machine BUT if you don't sew, they make rolls of iron on adhesive tape that would be perfect for this project.
Basically you cut ribbon & ric rac to make the shape of a tree. Then add some brown ribbon at the bottom for a tree trunk. Last, sew something "glittery" at on the top for the star.
I lined all of the ribbon up first & pinned it in place & then sewed one straight line across. If using the tape, you would just cut a piece the length of each piece of ribbon & then iron across the whole tree.
For the button on top, you could hot glue it on, if you really don't want to sew anything!
So now that I am expecting my third child, diapers are an everyday essential in this household. One that graduated from them less than a year ago, one that is currently wearing them, and now we are collecting them for the one on the way. Diapers, diapers, diapers: a BIG part of our day!!! We have tried all sorts of brands, but I am so excited to share a little insight into The Honest Company and the diapers that they bring you.
The Honest Company was started by a mom and a dad who, like many modern parents, were increasingly worried about products made with questionable chemical ingredients. But the alternatives they found were often expensive, inaccessible, bland, or ineffective. In response to this clear need for something better, they created The Honest Company to ensure that parents (or anyone for that matter!) could easily find natural and non-toxic eco-friendly products that are beautiful, effective, and affordable. From customized product bundles to diapers and wipes to an ever-expanding line of cleaning and personal care products, you can find everything you need at Honest.com and have it delivered directly to your front door.
Give it a try!
