Thank you to all of the guest bloggers who shared their fun advent tutorials with us last week! I hope you enjoyed them and were able to pin some ideas for the future. To see all of the ideas, click on the advent button on my side bar.
We had a great holiday weekend. One of the best! We didn't travel, get up early or have to go anywhere unless we wanted to. Derrick had 4 days off and we spent them doing things as a family, including playing games, setting up the Christmas tree, and taking family photos.
I'm pretty happy with how our pictures turned out! It was a quick session since I forgot to charge the camera batteries...oops! We were able to get 25 or so pictures before it went dead so we kept each pose quick and moved to the next one. The kids did really well and maybe it was because the whole thing was done in 20 minutes or so :)
I've also been working on making homemade stockings for all of us. Now that Ruby is here, I decided that matching stockings were a must! Here is a sneak peak.
I am working on a tutorial to post sometime this week. I'm waiting on some sunny weather so that I finish taking the photos of the finished product with some natural light. They were simple to make and I saved a bundle by making them myself. I priced them out this year online (because I wasn't really sure I wanted to take on this task, lol) and they ranged from $17.99-$49.99 for nice personalized stockings. I created 6 stockings for around $8.00.
I hope you'll come back this week and see how I did it!
Now to catch up on the house ....that's what we do every Monday!
Have a great week!
