12 Days of Christmas Crafts: Days 9 & 10

Day 9: Another chicken...to go with the pink one =) he he...made this guy with the same Junkitz fabric and felt. He was pretty fun to make...he he
Day 10: A few odds and ends....These are the albums I made for our parents (both mine and Z's) for Christmas...
...since both of our parents didn't (couldn't...cuz we're a lil spontaneous that way) come for the wedding, and we got the pictures back right before Christmas...I wanted to make them each a little memento album =) Z's parents finally got the box in the mail!! yay!! (So happy you liked everything, guys!!) And also, thank you, Volia and Todor for the lovely card for my birthday =)

(which is tommorrow...he he)


And this is how I wrapped all of my gifts this year: brown paper (sometimes brown paper bags)and ribbon from my stash. I seriously have a ton of it, so I thought...why not use it? It looks cute! Same with the labels..I'd bought them at my favorite Granille Island paper store a while back and they did the trick =) Quite simple...

...and where did that weekend go? We watched "Black Snake Moan" on Friday night......I'd wanted to see it for a while and it was awesome...lotsa Blues music and Christina Ricci is awesome. It's totally not what you'd expect. =) Annnd....I cleaned the house from top to bottom yesterday and am now feeling fab and fresh for the new year...with the exception of the giant pile of papers to sort and go through and do banking with, etc. blech. Today I took a trip to Micheal's to stock up on felt and goodies....(well, not really...just got a few lil things) and I didn't get to making all the stuff I have to make, in fact, I didn't make anything this weekend except breakfast this morning and some lunch...(and some cinnamon buns...yum!) which I'm sad about...=( But it's all good...there's always next weekend, I guess!

Still not feeling the best...my silly throat is hurting and I'm drinking tea and eating garlic like a maniac....lol...tommorrow I'm getting a haircut after work so I feel all awesome and pretty, and then Z and I are going to see Juno...cuz, well..it's my birthday and I'm dying to see it! Also, we're going out for Italian on Tuesday, too....but it won't be too late. =) happy night!
