12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

DAY 8!! 
Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop Day 1. This hop will take place  November 24th through December 5th and the new postings each day will be posted by 8am eastern standard time. This hop will be full of wonderful ideas and inspiration to get you well on your way  of creating all of those beautiful Christmas projects. This is an awesome way to get a lot of your Christmas cards, and scrapbook layouts  finished, home decorations completed and maybe even be inspired to  create something using a new technique that you have never tried.  There will be a new project posted each and every day by all the wonderful  amazing ladies in this hop. Also each day we will have a guest designer  or two for you to visit. 
So on with the hop!!! 

This is my favorite time of the year and I am so blessed to 
have my grandchildren close by.
This year we welcomed 3 new members to the family 
So I had to make more Christmas Stockings!  
Jaxon is my new grandson and it is his first Christmas
 I decided to go with 
Frosty The Snowman theme for his stocking.
His moms is two fun festive prints. I plan to add small 
pom pom trim to Jaxons so it looks like snow balls hanging 
off the white topper. 
For the stockings, I picked one out in Design Space. 
Cut the pattern out on my Cricut using the 12 x 24 size mat. 
I found this awesome video tutorial on Youtube 
She makes it super easy to follow along and even a beginner at sewing will have no problem.  
I added names with iron on glitter vinyl cut on the cricut. 

I also made chair covers for the girls. Here is one of them. 

The granddaughters just love them. A mom from my granddaughter's 
preschool made them for all the kids last year, out of felt 
but that didn't last more than 2 wks so I decided to make them out of
Christmas cotton fabric. These are super easy to make 
and I had mine finished in about 30 minutes. 
Either project would be fast and easy to do for a quick gift. 

I hope you enjoyed my contribution to the hop and 
I want to wish everyone a joyous holiday season and a happy and healthy New Year!!!!
