Felt Penguin Christmas Tree Decoration

If you've been following for a while, you will have seen that I started a tradition in 2018 of making a felt Christmas tree decoration each year.

This year I made a cute little penguin, with Max's name on it, to celebrate that this is the year he was born!

Each year I embroider the year on the back...

I made a special decoration in 2019 too, the year Emily was born - here they are together...

And below are all four I've made...

You can see my posts on them as follows... 2018 Star, 2019 Mouse in Stocking, 2020 Pudding.

The collection is growing!

I hope you have a merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year!

I'm hoping to have more chance to create and craft next year.  If we can get Max sleeping at a reasonable hour in the evenings, then I'll have an hour or two then to work on things... trusting I'm not too exhausted!

Cricut Art Book

Emily loves playing with stickers, and Santa is putting some in her stocking this year!  I thought a little notebook that she could use to stick the stickers in, and for drawing with her crayons, would be a nice idea.

I bought a kraft notebook from Amazon and decorated it with shimmer permanent vinyl cut on my Cricut Joy.  Very quick and simple, but hopefully she'll like it.  She can't read yet, but she knows a lot of her letters and hopefully will learn to recognise her name!

A cute little personalised Christmas present for under the tree!

A New Arrival

Well, it's been a while!!  As the subject of this post suggests, there has been a new arrival!  Not so new anymore...

Max was born back in June!  Here he is looking festive in a Christmas jumper and hat my Mum knitted for him!

And here he is with his big sister, Emily, also in a Grandma creation...

Having these two doesn't leave much time for crafting I'm afraid!  I do have a couple of things to show you though, so will aim to get those posts in before the end of the year!
