Christmas Presents!

Sunday, November 23, 2008 |

Obviously I have been in a blogging funk the past month or so, but I am hoping with the kids home this week for Thanksgiving break, and us taking a mini vacation later in the week to the Blue Ridge mountains for some family fun, I will be able to spend a little time in blog world while we are there!! Maybe I can pull out some dingbat stories from my "archives" as my mother calls them!! ha! Or more likely something will happen before then that will be worth blogging about!....Nothing crazy has happened in almost two weeks, and I'm pretty sure that sets a record for me, so I'm SURE the universe has something waiting around the corner for me and my dingbat self!! ha!ha!
Anyways, for now I thought I would put up pictures of my Niece's Christmas presents that I made this weekend. I am so happy with the way they turned out. Now I just hope my sister in law doesn't check my blog while she is in Mexico! (Hollie, if you see this, CLOSE YOUR EYES!!!!)

This is Hope's bulletin board. She has a very pink/shabby chic room that I think this will be gorgeous in! She also loves frogs. (or at least she did at one time........hopefully still does!) Oh, and the pom poms on the left side are not crooked, they must have just fallen that way when I took the picture! (had to CLARIFY that lest you think I am sloppy!! LOL!)

And this one is for my one of a kind niece Addie. If you met her, you would know why she is one of a kind. She's a MESS( in the south that means HILARIOUS!)!!! Her room is all different shades of purple, with touches of yellow and green.
I can't WAIT to give these to them for Christmas. Carter LOVES putting pictures/artwork/cards on his, and I think the girls will enjoy it too!

Hopefully I will be much more proactive in blog world this week, but until then, I hope y'all have a great week!!!

    Hey Heidi! The gifts you've made are beautiful... I'm sure your nieces will be very proud to hang them on their wall! I'm off to a friends house this weekend for a few days to make something similar for my boys and nephews... Don't you just LOVE it when your creative juices flow!!! Blessings for a beautiful day.

  • P.S.He loves you..

    what a great gift idea!! Thanks and what did you used for the board? or is that just a dumb question?

    Love them! Can't wait to have one. Deadline you ask??? 2nd week December??? What do u think?

  • Heidi

    Those are so cute. You have to share how they are made so we can all give it a try. My nine year old would love something like that in her room and it would certainly save our walls.

  • Jennifer

    How cute! Have a great and relaxing week up in the mountains! Pick some apples for me. :)

    Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful that we have become blogging BFF's!

  • Rachel

    So cute! I love the gifts you made :)

    About going back into that "archive"... did I totally miss the story of the muddy shoes??? I was like, waiting with bated breath for that and I thought I was up-to-date with everything???

    And my word verification word for this comment is "LUDGE"... I kinda feel like that after eating too much...

    I am glad you blogged, I have missed your posts. The boards look very nice! It is a great gift idea! Have a great Thansgiving. Enjoy the family time.

  • Hillary Hull

    Hey Heidi! So cute! I love them! We find out baby Hull's sex on December 8 at 9 a.m. so you and I will have to chat about possible board decorating options that week! I obviously won't be in a huge hurry to get it since we won't even have a house with a nursery until late March! But I'm excited either way! XO

  • Sandi Hixson

    yes....what about those muddy shoes?? i have been wondering the same have been ignoring us, your blog fans for way too long....and now you have promised us things that you have not fulfilled.........hmmm.........reminds me of political antics...(haha)...and you surely do NOT want to resemble THAT crowd, now do you??? so come on.....force yourself and keep your promise.....and while you're at bout one from the archives too?

  • Deare Diary

    I imagine we all will have some interesting stories after the holidays! I will be looking and waiting to read about your adventures.

  • Heather

    You are so talented. I remember being impressed by all the cookies and cupcakes you baked for the birthday party, and now this. I think you need a tv show. Have a great trip!

  • BethAnne

    Too cute! I hate for them to cover them up with stuff.....I think they should be signs instead of bulletin boards....they are too cute to cover up.

  • Connie

    Those are too cute and welcome to the blog funk. I think it's going around. Enjoy your time away and have a Happy Thanksgiving. I've got my first giveaway for my birthday...check it out! Connie

  • Lindsay-ann

    Those bulletin boards are fantastic. I am sure your nieces will be delighted with them. Homemade gifts are so special to receive.
    I hope you have a great time in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Please show some pictures from there. I love seeing your part of the world.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

  • heidi

    Those are super cute!

    Why are you in a funk? Snap out of it. ;-)

    I hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving and a great mini-vacay with the kidlets.

    Pssst? I don't read you just to read about hilarious airhead induced moments so they don't all have to make me wet myself with laughter.

  • Heidi

    Adorable, as always. You have such a talent. I love them.
