Crafts a plenty!

I did it! Yay, I'm so excited to share with you all the crafts I've been working on this month!

Casey and I don't have a tree, fireplace, or anywhere else cute to decorate. So I decorated our bookshelf! It's the IKEA expedit which we put together ourselves. It was a labor of love because I love it! It's the first thing you see when you walk into our home and I am obsessed with it!

I really wanted our first Christmas to feel special. So I made us both stockings. Here's mine.

Here's Casey's (filled.) I sewed, embrodiered, and adhered everything myself. Casey thinks they are too narrow (and they are) but they're cute.

Here is my favorite. Our Wreath. I made pom poms for my Halloween costume last year so re-purposed the extras for the wreath. It was a little bland so I spiced it up with some tinsel. (extra tinsel was used to decorate the bookcase.)

Another view of the wreath.
I did a watercolor/pen and ink/ pencil drawing of Casey's parents dog, for their Christmas gift. I am pretty happy with it!

Merry Christmas everyone! Safe Travels!
