Yesterday my husband and I were cleaning out our shed and cleaning it up a bit; I also needed to work through the boxes and find clothes for our youngest, my college diploma and I found some more old journals.  I found this sweater I crochet for my youngest daughter when she was about a month old.  I never added buttons or a zipper although I have a zipper for it.  This second picture is of the first scarf I crochet for my husband; I made him a hat on a knifty knitter that matched and had a heart on it, which was stole at his work, oh well.  I also crochet myself a matching scarf.  Mine was red and gold and both made from some soft, sparkly yarn I found at a dollar store near Granite Falls, WA.

Next I have a bookmark that I cross stitched from a kit from Joann.  I found it in this old journal.

I have a simple layout for you also, Here is my first day of Christmas page with an ornament partridge.  I'll post pics of what I give to Jared when I get prints and actually do it.  This is going to be entered in at Red Carpet Studios. 

So for the silhouette's letter to Santa contest I printed off the letter and stamped "Define 'Good'" from studio G.  I wrote: "I have been very good this year.  I've made sure to always tell my kids I love them and to listen to the things my husband says whether or not it's the billionth time I've heard it.  I also decided to course correct and am getting help.  And I never ever follow through on the bad punishments my 'Wonderful' kids may demand through their actions. (that is to say I haven't destroyed them)  I have included a complete wish list on the back of this letter, but the silhouette product I would most like to have is a monthly subscription.  If i found that under my tree on Christmas morning, I would be very happy because I could use it to save money on the awesome files in the store (that are now on my extensive wishlist).    Thank you Santa, Sandra M."  and below is my silhouette wish list

And here is a cute little Christmas card using scraps and using my studio G stamp "falala", a Joann stamp (tree), and my new Pink by Design stamps from the set "Black Friday".  I used the Mojo Monday sketch and that is the challenge I made this for.

Happy Crafting everyone!
