merry making

Oh the holidays…..bitter sweet they are. With the rush rush of making gifts, obligatory family photo shoots, and more cookies to eat and make can make one’s head feel in a tizzy.

After we had put up our Christmas decorations, I had announced that I wanted our Christmas 2010 family photo.

To my dismay…..many groans and moans came to which I replied that it was Christmas and you have to take your photo in front of the tree.

I should add that, while getting the tripod and lighting just right, the natives were putting on quite the show. But what sort of family photo would it be without the outtakes?

But eventually this Mama got her way, and our Christmas 2010 family photo was taken….but I seem to like the outtakes better….really captures the character of our house this time of year.

And in other merry making news, I completed both of the girls’ Christmas presents. Very simple, small little handmade gifts that both of them will love surely.

K has been wanting a handmade scarf for quite sometime……but scarfs are not quite my forte. So browsing Ravelry and my stash of knitting/crochet books, I found the perfect scarf for her that I know she will love. She is at that pre-teen age where some scarf patterns are too old for her and others seem to be to simple and plain.

When I located the Garden Scarf pattern from the book Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller, I knew it would be perfect for her. It is fun and whimsical and (I think) age appropriate for a pre-teen gal who is coming into her own style. I will show full photos after it has been gifted.

And for Miss L….well…..the bunnies seem to be multiplying around here. She loves bunnies! Loves them! So I have been trying to add to her collection of bunnies. To start her off in a little bunny family of Mama made bunnies, I made her one…..and it is so precious! I cannot wait for her to open it and love it as much as she loves her other bunnies. And again, I will show fully photos after the bunny has been gifted.

One thought that occured to me with K’s scarf is that as she grows or request the scarf to be longer, I can make and add on more flowers.

Merry Christmas!!!
