Ohhh Star Wars!!

Saw it opening night, two days later, and then a third time in IMAX 3D. 

Teacher Gift Card Books

Very late post but for the youngest's pre-k teachers I decided to do gift card books instead of a gift card tree (easier to get home lol!). 

The kids sent in gift cards for each teacher and I arranged them in alphabetical order in the books using "On the # day of Christmas [child's name] have to me..."

I put some cards in little envelopes, some I attached directly to the page. I used various Christmas cardstock for the pages.

When I had them ready I took them to my local Office Max and had them do the clear cover, a solid color back cover, and the black spiral binding. They turned out great and the teachers loved them. It was a bit labor intensive (and I had to keep reminding the parents to send in the cards) but it was worth it!

Easy Christmas Hymn Ornaments

The boys and I made these ornaments for our church choir director. These were really easy to put together. 

I wrote the hymns and a few stars on the outside with a gold paint pen. Then I cut the sheet music scrapbook paper and the star paper into thin strips then put several strips of each inside. I added some silver and gold stars and white glitter inside the ornament as well. To finish them off I just tied some thin burlap and gold ribbons into a knot on the hanger. 


Merry Christmas y'all!
