Greeting Card Book

I've been saving my sons cards since he was born. I finally made a book for him to be able to enjoy them. He loves getting cards. I repurposed a photo album and he picked out the paper I covered it with. So easy I just used a hole punch & placed them in it.

Photo Gifts- Home is where our story begins

I made these for my mother in law. The house she grew up in is no longer there.I know that it being gone has made an impact on the family. Not being able to go by anymore and just look at it. I didn't have a photograph of the home so I went searching & found an old photo on a property tax website and it wasn't a bad image.Actually the colors in it were awesome. I used a photo editor to enhance it a bit . I had trouble getting the sizing right & almost gave up on the ornament so I made one in a frame. After a couple tries I got the size right & rolled up the photo and slipped it in the ornament. I love the way it turned out. I printed the Home is where our story begins on transparent paper & attached it to the top. I love making meaningful gifts !! It was a hit & there were tears!The idea didn't come to me until a few days before Christmas. I think it would be a nice gift anytime of year.

Mini Firefighter Tree

I made this firefighter tree with stuff I already had lying around. The bottom of the tree I used black & yellow tape to make it blend in instead of the burlap.I hot glued the boots to the bottom. He's so cute !
