The stockings were hung...

...not by the chimney, because I don't have one. So this is my stocking(sock) hanger. I don't know if you can see my socks too well. I went to the dollar store and bought 9 different sets of Christmas socks. I then used clothes pins to hold them onto a piece of red yarn. I love it! I still want to paint the clothes pins and add something else to it, but I haven't had time yet. I also took fishing line and hung red and green ornaments from my ceiling above my socks. My obsession with Christmas decorating and crafts is driving my husband crazy, but I love it! Here are a few more things that I have made.

I learned how to few hand motion quilt this summer. This was my first project and I think it turned out rather well. Sorry my pictures are so crappy I was in a hurry. Here is a picture of my kiddos.

I took the kids to see Santa Clause last Saturday! We had a community Christmas day. My sister Mel went with me, so that we could take Savannah as well. Jaylee and Savannah had matching Santa girl outfits. They were so cute! I will post a picture when I get them back. I have been so busy this week and I still am not done decorating my house and there are a ton of projects I want to make.



Very cute! I love everything. I saw a simliar sock thing online just the other day. So cute.


Cute! Mike is the one that decorated our house this year. I think he might have been coming down with something ;)


I love the plate and the table runner is so flippin cute! Love the pics of the kids too.


I love your decorations!! I wish I was that good with crafts.

Thanks so much for the Wise Men tile. I love it!


Hi Leslie - I "arrived" at your blog by way of the Crafts Exchange blog.

I LOVE your countdown to Christmas and wondered if you could tell me where to find the directions or let me know if you take order.
