Yesterday I got almost all of the things on my list accomplished. It took me all day, but I did it.
I started out with the handmade gifts I am making. I need 8 sets total and I finished four sets, or half of them. They turned out quite nicely. Here are some pictures:
I started with two different sets of handmade note cards with holders.
The little holders for the cards and envelopes turned out cute
Then I decorated the tree. Yes, it is totally crooked. It was leaning to the left and then I tried the "straighten" effect in IPhoto. Didn't work so much. Joe is going to try and fix the tree tonight.
Then I put on Gizmo's new red harness. Now all she needs is some antlers. Don't think I don't have any, because I do! I just need to find them.
She was not impressed with the festive harness. I suspect she will be even less so with the antlers. Ah, the things we do to our animals because we don't have kids. Heh.
Then I made almost the rest of the name bracelets that I promised people. I think I have two more that aren't shown here.
All packaged up and ready to go into the envelopes. As well as the bracelet, there is an extra little treat in there that will be a surprise when they open them.
You can tell your girls they can start checking their mailboxes as early as next week. I hope they love them. I had fun making them for all of your children.
