That time of year

It's that time of year, when everyone is trying to get a million things done at once, before the big December 25th deadline! Well, we're all always trying to get a million things done, but it's a bit more hectic this time of year. Right!? This year is no different. My little guy's last day of preschool was this past Thursday, and I needed to get the teacher's gifts done. I always wait until the last minute for EVERYTHING! UUGH!!

Anyway, I was on Leah Fung's blog checking out her candy cane Fridays for 2009 and she showed a unique frame from last year. I totally had forgotten about these frames, but they are adorable, and pretty easy. I created 8 of them for his teacher's, helpers and the Director of the preschool. (I used papers from 6x6 pads of Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket.) I hope they enjoyed them. I had a good time making them, and now I'll make some more for P's teachers. His last day of school is Friday, so we'll see how long I wait to make those.

Today the boys and I recycled some broken and unused crayons from around the house. This was a fun project. I found it here. It was fun and I LOVE the colors they created. Their creations...
I hope you're gearing up for whatever holiday you celebrate! I encourage you to make some handmade items for your loved ones, they'll love them even more!!!
