Snowmen and Santa and Reindeer, Oh My!

My daughter was sick yesterday, so I decided to tackle one of my painting projects. I'd already completed the snowman with the Christmas tree above a few weeks ago, but Monday night my daughter and I went to Hobby Lobby and picked out a few more decorations to paint. She wanted to do Santa with his reindeer and I picked out the door hanging with the snowmen, penguin, reindeer, and Santa.
After sleeping from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., (yup, she definitely didn't feel good!) she woke up, said she felt a little better, and asked me if she could paint. I thought it would be a nice, relaxing activity for her, one that wouldn't involve any running or jumping as she is wont to do after she's slept for so long!
I think they turned out pretty darn cute.
Do you have any Christmas crafts you're planning to do this year?


  1. No crafts for me - except baking, which I need to start pretty soon. I also need to get my Christmas tree/decorations up.

  2. THat is so cute! great job! Not for me - I am so not crafty!

  3. Look at you getting all creative! They're adorable. :)

    I'm not crafty at all, except with cakes. And only a couple times a year.

    Hope the little one is feeling better!

  4. No crafts for me either, except baking and maybe some knitting. Now if we had kids, that might be a different story!

  5. There will be no crafts for us this year. Too busy getting ready for the vacation, but we are putting up our tree and decorating. :)

    Those that you and your daughter did are very cute!

  6. BEAUTIFUL Christmas decorations, Melissa. I'll bet they were fun to make, too. No new holiday decorations for me this year. I'll be lucky if I can find my Scooby Doo lights for the ficus tree.


I love to hear from you!
