Free Canvas

I've seen posts about the free canvas from canvas people on quite a few blogs this year.  Today I finally got around to checking out the site and ordering one. You get a $55 credit, so you can get a 8x10 canvas for free or upgrade to a larger size, the 11x14 would be $9.99.  I decided to go with the free 8x10 as I will be using it either in our bedroom or Addison's bedroom.  I used a beautiful picture of Addison taken this fall in black and white. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

If you would like a free or discounted canvas check out the canvas people here

Merry Christmas

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. It was busy at our house, unfortunately, Dustin had to work midnights all weekend.  We started our holiday with Christmas at his parents on Thursday. Christmas day Addison and I went to Ely to my dad and stepmoms.

Addison was so excited Christmas morning. Santa brought her the Hello Kitty camera that she asked the Santa at Bentlyville for.

Santa Belly Ornaments

The last couple of years we have made ornaments for Addison to give to her teachers at school and her grandparents. We keep one for our tree too.

This year we made Santa Bellys.  She really didn't get too involved with this one since I had to use hot glue.  I bought the ornaments last year on clearance. Then I cut a piece of felt into strips that were 3/4 inches wide. I used gold pipe cleaners for the buckle. I hot glued those onto the felt and then the felt onto the ornament.  On the back I used black permanent marker to write her name and the year.

I think they turned out really cute.

Here she is showing one of them off.

Shutterfly made it so easy to make our Christmas cards this year. The hardest part was choosing which design and which pictures to use.
