We are geeky crafters. We are not ashamed of it…although, there was a period in our youth it seemed like a dirty secret…. 20 somethings with no kids who were home making things instead of..I dunno, doing whatever the hipsters were doing=Decidedly Not Cool. We got over it and decided to embrace the craftiness, since it typically yields things we like. Funny how that can happen.
I’ve rounded up a few projects from past years for your holiday pleasure.
Airplane and Helicopter Ornaments
Wood Veneer Ornaments
Every Year, The CC makes the kids an ornament, and every year, he frets about running out of ideas, but he always pulls it out in the end. Can I just say, he outdid himself this year and I can’t wait to show you. Dr. Who fans will enjoy them.
DIY Agate Slice Ornaments
Heat embossed gift wrap
Map stenciled gift wrap
I mix up the decor every year. I like trying to find new ways to use my decorations each year to keep it fresh. I can’t imagine having to put everything in the same place, put together the same way, every year. Is that weird?
On a general decor note, most of this stuff, and the food gifts and projects just end up on Instagram, but a few had posts….might need to be better about that? Posts like this and this.
BTW, ditched Followgram now that Instagram finally has static pages for users, so the IG link above and in the sidebar will now take you to my page on Instagram instead of a 3rd party site.
The disco balls have been making our holidays sparkly for a couple of years now…
Bucky gets into the spirit.
Last year was the too wide taper caper for the brass deer….
And then there’s that damn elf. Don’t EVEN get me started.
I’m slowly getting this year’s vibe going…far from done, more to come!
