Let the Red and Greens Begin!

I know it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet, but it’s never too early to start preparing for Christmas, right? I mean, a lot goes into it, especially if you plan on making things.

To begin my Christmas creating journey, I got a little help from Joanna of Clipits. She was one of the sponsors who did a giveaway last month and she sent me some beautiful hair pieces.

The little one and big one got a headband and I got a super cute hair comb. I really like how she made them go together without being too matchy.

To go with them, I make a simple peasant shirt with some white ruffles for my oldest. Here is a fab tutorial I have always used for creating shirts like this on my own. Then for the littlest, I had tried for a dress, but it ended up being a little small on her :) So it became a shirt.

My hubby oh so graciously snapped these pics for me and I had fun editing them. It’s so much harder taking pictures now!!!!! I must say I admire you photographers who do big groups pics. Especially with a few kids. I now see how much energy you need for that. Whew!

You can find Joanna here on her blog, facebook, and Etsy. She’s currently accepting custom orders for headbands like my daughters (starting at $14.95). With the holidays approaching, it’s good to know of places to buy well made fantastic handmade goods from. I encourage you to support our local artisans and Made in America products this year :) I’m already busy searching on Etsy……

    Your girls look so cute!!!

    We are already working on Christmas stuff too. Since this is Lucy’s first Christmas without G.I. Joe around we’re going way overboard to compensate. Lol I can’t stop making Christmas plans and new traditions!

    Lovely pictures and lovely little girls!

    I’m a knitter so I’ve already started thinking about Christmas. If I don’t do it early I won’t be finished – and no matter what probably will be knitting right up until Christmas eve!
