Crafting Fun....Gift Tags...

This is a project Leesa and I worked on a few weeks ago. These are packages of gift tags. We decided to go ahead and work on some Christmas gifts for next year. Each package has ten gift tags in it. We now have a Sizzix cutter. It is so much fun! It is great to start a project and complete it in one afternoon. We are trying to stock pile some gifty items.

A Vintage Christmas in 2009!

Mom, Leesa and Grace

Leesa's Pistachio Pudding Dessert

My kitchen counter tree with vintage ornaments. Messy counter!

It was so fun to host Christmas Day at our house this year! We wanted to recreate our 50's - 60's memories as much as possible. I love to collect vintage christmas decorations and tablecloths. I also used my vintage punch bowl...with orange sherbet punch! (remember that!)

Leesa made pistachio pudding...I'm not sure when that was popular, but we hadn't had it in years! Everyone loved it! I also made a Dream Whip Poke Cake. Grant took all of these pictures with his new camera. He did an amazing job! He's the new family photographer!
