Merry Kitschmas - Vintage Holiday Wreaths

Had fun making a few more kitschy Christmas wreaths! I bought the wreath bases from the 99 cent store and then hot glued vintage ornaments onto them.

Craft from the Past. Remember Shrinky Dinks?

Quinn is 10 this year and has a little posse of friends that he wanted to give gifts to this Christmas. He also loves to draw and I wanted to somehow incorporate his craftiness into his gift. I was at the thrift store and came across a new Shrinky Dink kit. Remember those from the 70s?! Quinn has this signature eyeball with bat wings that he drew a year or so ago and I thought it would make a great necklace using the shrinky dinks. So we gave it a go and he loved it so much we've made about 15 of them now. Yesterday he passed them out to his peeps at school and everybody loved them.

Sleighin' the Dragon!

I didn't have time this year to design a Christmas Card so I asked my 10 year old son if he would draw something for me. His only directive was to make sure it had a holiday theme. I am so so excited with what he came up with!! The Santa flying a dragon was entirely his own idea and I think the execution is fabulous as well! When he was done I scanned it into Photoshop - added a night sky and a Merry Christmas and just sent it off the printer. I can't wait to send these in the mail.
