It is Christmas Eve

I can't believe it is already Christmas Eve! Today my parents come over for an appetizer dinner! We just hang around here and play games usually! I did want to show you some projects I completed yesterday. First is a picture frame that I made Jack for Christmas. It is so hard making for a boy especially since I have girls and you can make it frilly! Oh well I don't really like it but hopefully he will!
Paper - SU & CM
Ribbon - Offray
Flowers - No clue
Rubons - Dollar Store
Flourish stamp - Heidi Swapp (I think)
Embossing powder
Ink - Emboss it

The next project is his mom's candles! I did 2 snowman & 1 big candle to match the coaster. I had planned on making a fall one but messed up the one candle and got mad! LOL I did calm down and start all over! I like what I did and hopefully Susan will too!

Candle - Walmart
Stamps - SU & G studio
Ink - Stazon & SU black classic
Markers - Bic Mark it's & Sugarloaf
Ribbon - Offray
This is only the 2nd time I made candles so I was pleased with the outcome! Actually it really is not that hard and makes great presents! If you would like to know how I did it please leave me a message & I will send you details! The one snowman candle has snowflakes too but you can't see them!

The 21st was Antonia's birthday! She had a great time and finally got a fish tank! We all planned to buy stuff for it so she could have it running before Christmas! We bought her a gift card for Pet Supplies Plus to buy fishie's (yes it is spelled wrong). I will post a picture or so of her big day! I can't believe she is 11 already! I also can't believe Taylor has had a boyfriend for a year and a month! My girls are so grown! Do you think she is excited to get her tank?????

Okay well that is it for today! I want to wish all my family and friends a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!
