Seriously though, I hear ya on having trouble with christmas lists. My sister and I split and got my mum a boardgame and got my dad a piece of music equipment (a pedal for his guitar, I think. She was the one to order it, so it's not fresh on my mind).

Yeah, of all the things in the tax debate, the student loan rebate is what I want them to keep the most.

Definitely super cute. If I had a desk I'd be making puppy eyes for one to put on it!

Here's the blog that shows how to make them. If you have some holey socks, it's a great way to use em. You don't use the foot part of the white sock. Also, if you have a glue gun, some colorful socks, and a few buttons on hand you can whip one up in like 10 minutes. If I hadn't had my 2 year old adamant about helping me it would have gone faster.

I made this lil snowman today. I just need to get a toothpick painted orange for her nose yet. Think I'm going to make a couple more for my daughter's teachers for gifts. Smile Might even put some potpourri in the bottom of those.



don't bother with the nose, it looks great as is!

(also pointy things might be painful around small children)

I'm giving this one away to my secret Santa at work on Friday. She kinda needs a nose to look more snowmanish. (I do think she is cute without though)

i also agree on the cute without. she looks like she's huddled down in her sweater, keeping her nose safe from the cold, and big-eyed at the whole snow thing.

So I hot glued on her nose last night, and then I went to bed since today was the gift giving day for secret santa. My cat attacked her in the night...and she had been sitting on the table with no problem for a week!!! Apparently the nose made it a strange and dangerous creature. Luckily, he only pulled her hat off and squashed the nose to one side when she fell over. On the bad side of things...I didn't get a gift today from my secret santa. Sad Why am I always the one who doesn't get anything?
