Day 2 Ornaments and a Giveaway!

Is everyone having a fantastic afternoon? This little ornament party is so fun!
How about Amy's sweet little star ornament???
Again I was inspired to make my own version of Amy's ornament last night (could somone remind me to go to bed at a decent hour, apparently I have two little boys who would like their mommy to wake up on time in the morning)!
Thanks again Amy @ Mod Podge Rocks for participating.
I wasn't able to make Amy's ornament exactly but I think it is a nice combination of Dani's & Amy's tutorials.
You see if I went to the craft store EVERYDAY, then the
National Department of Husbandry
might shut this operation down, and I just can't have that happen.
So I took the supplies I had on had and made this cute little ornament. I am lovin' it!

And while I was at it, I made some more my sister, my mom and my aunt. All with the initials from their last names. This is what keeps me up at night. I cannot seem to stop at one.
Do you like them? Well you can win one with your family's initial or any letter you want.


How do I win you ask?


Well let's make it fun shall we...you can have 2 chances for this giveaway.

Today, Lil J is pretending to be Santa while riding our snowman.
I hope the snowman is OK.

And my favorite Christmas song (ok, I'll admit it- I listen to this one all year round!) is Believe by Josh Groban. It gets me excited for Christmas no matter how warm it is outside!

Can't wait to see what Becca is bringing to show off tomorrow! :) Your ornaments turned out adorable--again! And Lil J looks a lot like your husband. :) (And PS: I know ALL about that National Department of Husbandry...they are always on my butt. ;))

My favorite is 'O Holy Night'...although, it's usually just whatever I'm listening to, like right now, Barry Manilow's 'Because it's Christmas'.

That's a good one too!

Denise said...

So cute with the initials on them! I am a follower, a recent one, but am loving your ideas! My absolute fav christmas song is "Little Drummer Boy", preferrably Harry Connick JR, but really don't care as it just makes me happy to hear it.

I love your ornament ideas! It's been a great inspiration as I plan out our next few weeks of school!

As for favorite songs... I like all of them, as long as we can make up new words to them as they go along (in the style of "Jingle bells, batman smells"...)

I am loving these ornaments so far!! I came over from Not So Idle Hands, and am so glad I did! I make my daughter an ornament every year so that one day in the far, far away future she will have a nice little collection to get her started and now I have so many fun ideas for her!! Thank you...:)

Btw- My favorite Christmas song is O' Holy Night :)

About this time of year I can't seem to get Jimmy Buffett's "Christmas in the Caribbean" out of my mind . . . just wishing I was somewhere warm!
