I will be sharing Day 21-22 this was REALLY crunch days for us if I was going to get all gifts done to mail in time. lol Lots of gifts left to be made and wrapping. Oh my the wrapping!
Day 21:Spent the morning going over my check list for what gifts were left to do. Then worked all morning finishing up those gifts. We hauled everything out of the craft room out to the dinning room to layout and start wrapping and packaging. The funny part I just got the club hostess gifts all wrapped and my mother showed up. We didn't know she was coming over and she is in one of my hostess clubs. So mom you almost blew the surprise. (There were many close calls this year for people seeing gifts.) Haha Dh and I got a pretty good laugh out of it.
As we got things done they got checked off so I included that in my layout on this page. I used all the items from Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle. Our family tradition is to create some of our gifts since I love to create and handmade gifts to me mean a lot more. (Some times this stress dh out and he thinks I am CRAZY).
Every year our tradition is to make something special for our nieces, nephews and cousin's kids. I had a great Aunt who always did special things for us kids and it is one of my fondest memories of what cool thing did she make up. I want to pass that on to our peeps. We are the favorite ;) This year I wanted to make stockings; so on Dec. 21 at 4pm at night what are we doing cutting stockings out for the kids. We had about 30 to make too. ROFL
This layout I just added pictures then decorated one picture with the Project Life Hello December 2015 Accessories Pack. Pretty simple. My husband dose think I am crazy but he always helps. lol So he got the best husband award this year.
Here is one batch of stockings cut out waiting to be pinned and sewed together. Gonna be so cute right? Another VERY late night. My top card I decorated using the accessories from Project Life Hello December 2015. I used the stamp from Project Life Hello December 2015 Stamp Set; inked it in Lost Lagoon and stamped on the bottom right corner. I took the stamps from Holly Jolly Greetings Stamp Set; inked them in Real Red, and Basic Gray and stamped randomly onto the card.
Day 22: (BAD DAY HERE.) Up at 5am; only time for a little coffee. Oh elves where are my Christmas Photo Cards??? Lost somewhere over Michigan. EEKKKKK We spent a good part of the day trying to sew the stockings. One after another major mistakes were made; from sewing them wrong side out, to missing the edges and etc. Only 1 turned out; seriously not kidding. So they were a huge BUST but boy was that interesting lol (note to self: when doing this large of project make sure you have plenty of sleep the night before and drink LOTS of coffee). Dh got the tree up finally!! Never been so late in my life with anything. lol I'll be honest at this point we ready to say to heck with no tree or decorations; but we were hosting Christmas this year and we didn't want to disappoint the kids. The things you do for the kids to make the day special!!!
I thought it was important to document the one stocking and getting the tree up finally just because of the humor of the situation. I kept this simple too. I just used the Project Life Hello December 2015 Bundle.
Tick Tock Tick Tock now what do we do for the kids??? 2 Days before Christmas. EEKK Gonna have to sleep on it.
