It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

This is how my weekend went.  #1 and #3 Grandchild picked out our Christmas tree.  Put it up and decorated it.  This picture is in the very beginning when we had the lights on the tree and they were putting up the star.  They had to strike a pose for the camera.  Aren't they just gorgeous.  I know brag, brag, brag, but that is a Nana's prerogative.   

I haven't taken any pics of our finished tree yet.   I have an idea forming in my head for a special tree topper.  I hope to get the stuff tomorrow and finish it off .  Maybe I'll give you a peek next week on SC SMT!
The second photo is of 3 picture frames Kaylee made for some gifts for her friends.  She covered them with glittered DP from My Minds Eye Dear Santa collection, sanded the edges and inked them.  Then she cut out some embellies with the Cricket and a snowflake punch.  I think she was happy with the way they turned out because she was the one who suggested I post them on my blog. 

See that old gum ball machine in the background of the second photo?  Poor ole thing stands empty because the key was misplaced years ago.  Grans are sad it is empty, but their parents are not.  Ha Ha 

So this is a little glimpse of what was going on in my world.  Why not join in the fun over at Sassy Cheryl's and show us what is going on in yours?


  1. Looks like your granddaughters enjoyed their time with you! Love the frames, seems like she's walking in your footsteps.

  2. Beautiful girls. Aren't grandkids just the best?

  3. Tree, grand daughters and picture frames are all gorgeous! Next year can you send them up here to decorate my tree for me, please?!
    I know your tree is gorgeous, even if we haven't seen the end result yet.
    Yes, you need some gum balls for your machine. Poor little thing.

  6. Beautiful tree Linda, the girls look so happy too! :)

  7. You must have slipped this entry in toward the last of the week, because I can't think how I missed it otherwise. I may have been sewing tablecloths. The girls are gorgeous and tell Kaylee, the frames are the BOMB! Her friends are going to love them.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love reading them and making new blogging friends from all over the world. Crafting friends are very special friends.

Happy Crafting, Linda
