My crafting priority right now is to finish the baby’s Christmas stocking! I can’t be the reason Santa doesn’t come! Since its just a follow-the-directions type thing, it’s pretty relaxing to work on in the evenings. Good thing I’ve been working on my embroidery skills though!
Over the weekend, we went on a date to Mozart’s to see the Christmas lights. Fun fact: We found out about all the lights there the night we got engaged. This time, we got there right before it started getting dark, and drank our hot chocolate in peace outside before all the hoards of families came to join us.
We BYOCC and put baby candy canes in our hot chocolate.
The light show is half amazing technical feat, and half cheesy Christmas fun. Even the normal display that doesn’t move is still pretty impressive, and very Austin-themed!
1. I generally like my fudge classic with walnuts, but this peanut butter chocolate fudge looks cute with the little swirl of chocolate on top. 2. Mini herb wreaths! 3. Now that I’ve conquered hats, its time to move on to mittens. 4. Salt dough ornaments have a cousin? 5. I don’t think I could ever eat these, but they look like a Christmas party.
What are you up to this December weekend? I have some animals to sew, a garden to protect from bugs, and we still have all the leaves in the world to rake. We’re tempted to get one of those extra large holiday bags that you fill with leaves. Hope you have a merry one!
According to the internet, we were probably supposed to get some adorable professional photos taken for Christmas for our newlywed year. And then we were supposed to send out a sweet holiday card to everyone that would arrive the week before. But instead, we spent the most of December attending parties, and then skipped town. No regrets.
But I do love a good Christmas card. And I know that I can only use wedding photos for so long before other people get tired of them. Solution: happy new year cards
I made them in similar style to our wedding invites, and used one of my favorite photos from our wedding. I love them, so I hope our family is happy to see them in the mail soon! I will have a slightly similar pattern of card available in my etsy shop soon!
