Holiday Fun!!! :)

Hey everyone!!!!  I haven't been able to craft in such a long time!  I have been so busy with things at work, and now that I have my car back I'm rarely ever home.  I am making it my goal to start making more cards!!!  I am hoping with my upcoming vacation that I will have more time for using the Cricut (it's okay Cricut I still love you)!  Here are just a couple of the things I have been up to...

We had our annual Jingle Jam at work, and my students dressed up as little Santas and sang "Must be Santa".  It was sooooo cute!  They were so proud of themselves and they had to perform their song 3 times in front of 3 huge crowds!  They weren't even nervous!  I think I was more nervous than they were...  A few years ago my aide and I came up with this little costume to make for them to wear during their performance and I think it's just the cutest thing ever!  I took this picture of my niece wearing the costume...


I can't even express how cute it was to see all of these little Santas on the stage!  I think some of them actually thought they were Santa!  :)  They were so excited about their costumes that they didn't even want to take them off when we went home!

Yesterday I made a bunch of cookies and candy to give out to my friends...  Here is the cart full of goodies that my friend Sarah and I turned into holiday deliciousness!  :) 


Well everyone I hope to be up and crafting soon!  I haven't forgotten about you guys (or this blog), just been super busy!!!  See you soon, and I hope your holidays are going great!  :)

Hi Amy! The costume - and your niece - are so adorable!! I have been very bad about crafting the last few weeks, too. There is just so much to do this time of year. The candies and cookies you made had to be awesome - I just want to crawl into the cart and start eating :) Hope you are doing well and Happy Holidays :)

Cute Santa costume. Reminds me of my daughter when she was younger & performing in school Christmas events. She made it home today from completing her 1st semester as sophomore in college in which she is studying Art Animation.
