I started on some new hats for my kids. With all the snow we have been getting, we have been outside a lot and their crochet hats from last year are small. So I asked them what they wanted and they chose Paw Patrol characters. I just picked some felt up from the store today to add some badges to the hat. My kids are getting super excited. I'm also working on my project for the Valentines swap. I'm pretty excited about it.

Oh my gosh, Natalie! He turned out so dang cute! You did a wonderful job! I agree. Any excuse for chocolate.

Thank you, Krista!

He's finito! I made the snowflake from a MaryJanesFarm pattern -

My husband and I visited a nearby little Alpine-inspired town for dark chocolate truffles and buckeyes. A real treat! While walking around the little town we saw two pretty resin snowmen in the window with a price tag of $95 each. I figure the cost of the chocolate splurge is balanced out by the fact that my little guy's cost to make was about $1 using what I already have. That's how I figure it anyway. Lol! Any excuse for chocolate!

That's very creative Natalie! Thank you! I love diamond paintings. I'm wanting to start another one. I need a room for all the diamond paintings I plan to finish lol!

I love the diamond painting! The Real Lemon bottle just looked like it could be a snowman. I see form in "garbage" a lot. Also, I was disappointed that it was too warm for snow here and just wanted a snowman. I started a little crocheted hat for him. When he's completed I will share another photo.

Keep shining!

Wow everyone is so busy and with some wonderful projects.

Natalie, your snowman is adorable and so creative! How did you come up with the idea? I would love to see a picture once you finish!

I finished a diamond painting for my mother in law. We didn't frame it because she wanted to pick out her own frame. Now I need to get back to some crochet.

I am repurposing a Real Lemon bottle into a snowman with decoupage, acrylic paint, buttons and branches with white paint where snow would land and sealed with acrylic sealer. I filled the bottle with clean cat litter (of course) for weight. The cone nose is scrap paper painted and sealed with decoupage glue. Next I am making a hat, vest, and scarf. Maybe make the cheeks a little rosy in a very muted way.

Keep shining!

I'm working on a couple of items that should have been done a long time ago.

A pair of slippers for a guy with big feet.

A winter hat which will be given to someone who doesn't have one.

Krista -- I love how that came out. Great job!
What I'm working on today is unpacking and washing clothes from our trip.

Loving everyone's projects. Today I am working on a scrappy crocheted blanket. Using whatever is in the box . I doubled the yarn so it is chucky and goes faster.

I didn't make it any further on the plaid pillow but I did finish everything else. It was quite the rush to get everything done but Christmas was a success. Luckily my mom is being patient with me and I still have time to finish. We have one more Christmas party tomorrow and then I can get back to focusing on the pillow. I don't want to wait to much longer.

Here is what I have completed of my moms present.

MaryJanesNiece Posted - Dec 23 2019 : 2:04:49 PM
Vanessa, that is beautiful! You guys did an amazing job. I like how you guys even put where you are from.

Grace, those turned out beautiful! Your plaid would match the plaid I'm making for my mom. I won't have her present done by Christmas though. So I feel bad.

I finished cutting the last of my empty shotgun shells last night and will do my finally gluing today so I can get them wrapped for Christmas. I'm excited to see what my dad, brother, and husband think.

Ta da! My mother-in-law's quilt is done at last! It has been a UFO since 2016 or so. Although she said I didn't need to finish it, she caught the bug and now she's working on another top.

The tree quilt is lovely, Judith. And I agree. The squirrel pattern is darling. Your niece is going to love it.

I'm hoping to finish up a crochet hat today. My cousin asked me if I would make it for her daughter for Christmas. It's suppose to be a cactus looking one.ill share pictures once it's done.
