June Brag Book

I think this picture of the girls is one of my favorites.  I changed the photo to black and white and ran a special action on it, and it turned out superb!  I even used it on one of our christmas photo cards we sent out.  I spent saturday addressing my cards and geting the envelopes stuffed.  I even created a family newsletter to either mail or e-mail to our friends and family!  It was a lot of fun to create a letter and try to put a whole year's worth of events and news into a few paragraphs.  I created another 4x6 scrapbook page and printed them off at snapfish for .09 and free shipping! and those I'll try to mail out like a postcard to our friends and family.  Why use an envelope that just gets thrown away? 

Here's a list of sites promoting home-made Christmas ideas.  Check it out!  I've seen a lot of ideas talking about "felting", using old sweaters made out of at least 50% wool, then washing them so they shrink, and then cutting them up to use for a variety of things.  I'd be interested in making mittens, both decorative and to use, making children's clothing, and cutting into squares for a quilt.  The decorative idea I've seen is to cut out and sew small mittens and stockings, then string them onto a twine garland and hang them around your mantel, Christmas tree, or anywhere.  Cute winter decorations, right?  I've actually made something like this out of felt, and they are cute.
