my life is dependant on batteries!

i have not been blogging, i missed wordless wednesday this week and i sent a swap package out a day late all because the batteries in my camera died! i couldn't send out a box of goodies without taking pictures of the loot first! so i will now amuse you with make up photos~

i participated in the winter swap at the sewing mamas forums and here are the pretties i made for the mama portion of the swap~ hand beaded earrings and bracelets. i had so much fun making them and have decided i need to sit down and make myself some jewlery now... add that to my constantly growing crafty to-do list!

and for the kid's portion of the swap i did sets of 4 handmade cards. i made a few extra for my girls... they love this sort of thing!

i finally finished that everlasting soaker that i cast on who knows how long ago. we love how this fits our chunky little guy. it is now our new favorite diaper cover~ he even wears it under his mama-made fleece pants!

tony brought out the boxes of christmas decorations and hung all the outdoor christmas lights today... he is so proud that he got this done before december! so our house looks very festive even though he forgot to put the terra cotta pumpkins away so they are still sitting on the front porch. i bought fabric and rick-rack today so i can sew christmas stockings for the whole family. i hope to have them done this weekend. i am also planning to sew a new tree skirt and an advent calender. i will be sure to post many pictures of my crafty endevours in the next few weeks... so long as the batteries continue to cooperate...
