Holidays and craft time

I am so thankful to be able to get my crafting done. Even with an infant in the house, I am able to work around the house and get things done. He is such a happy baby and only cries when he is hungry. I stick to a schedule of feedings and naps and he loves it.
When he is awake and we're not cuddling, I put him in his bouncy seat on the dining room table so he watch me and everyone else. He is sitting up and gets to be a part of our every day lives.
One project I worked on over the weekend is this adorable lampshade.
Featured here:
Isn't Jenny so creative?!?!??
Wish I had that talent.
The only thing is I used green wired lights because that's what I had at home, but I think I will replace them with white wired ones instead. Each is covered with fabric and lightly embellished.

I've also been working hard on my faux cupcakes. I am thinking about listing them on etsy after the holidays.
These here I made for myself as a christmas/birthday gift (Dec 30). See our family has 4 birthday the week of christmas and that can be very expensive- so I tell everyone not to get me anything...I already have everything I want!!!!
My oldest will be 15 December 26, I am December 30th and the twins are December 31st- New Years babies!!!
As much as I love pink, I have slowly been adding in other pastels as well. Blues and greens especially look great with pink!!

On another note.....being that my oldest daughter will be 15 she is now able to get her learners permit!!! I am so nervous about teaching her to drive and especially nervous about her driving on her own next year!!!!
Pray for our family and all the drivers in our town!!
Have a great week!!!

Come on in.....

Come on in and have a cup of tea with me.
We are all busy getting ready for holidays and hugging our sweet baby.
Don't you just love that newborn baby smell???
That's just one of the scents here you smell at our cottage. Most likely I am burning our Mistletoe Yankee candle or some other sweet scent.
I think tomorrow me and my girls will bake up some fun stuff. Cupcakes or cookies.
My little ones love to bake with Mommy!!!
We'll see what kind of sweet treats our loving kitchen will be filled with this weekend.
Off I go to hug all my babies!!!!
