Another Bucket!

I told you I made 10 buckets for gifts, so here is another one! I used Noel Mignon's Dear Santa kit (sold out), for the patterned paper and my Winter Wonderland Cricut cartridge for the mittens. I inked the edges of the mittens and added glitter to the cuffs. I punched two snowflakes, inked their edges, and sprinkled glitter on all of them. A red rhinestone was added to the center of the snowflakes and then added to the mittens. The little tag is from Quickutz and will eventually bear the name of the recipient who will receive this lil' gift.

I am realizing that my ribbon is a bit cock-eyed........ah well........*sigh*


I am going to see the Adam's Family play in downtown Chicago this evening with Brian and Kyle. Cort is staying back with a sitter. Every now and then we like to do things with each of them separately. Tonight is his night. : )
Have a FABULOUS Thursday!!!! : )

I love hearing about folks doing fun things with their kids. So often we get caught up in life and forget the important stuff! Love your little buckets, cockeyed ribbon and all! TFS

Love the gift..I especially love the soft colors.

I am learning so much from you..motherhood for me is still far away...but there are little gems of info that I read about you and your children that I tuck away into my memory that I'm sure I will help me with my kids.

This idea of giving each child one special day is a fabulous idea. Its already tucked into my memory.

hugs,
Tejal

I just love those little buckets. I saw them at Target. I have debated several times to get some for teacher gifts. I really like what you have done to doll them up.
