Monday Made It -Christmas Edition

I can't believe it's already December!  This is a super busy month, but add in the twins birthday and it is non-stop from the beginning of the month.  I have two fun things to share for Monday Made it.  I love linking up with Tara :)

At the beginning of November, I was asked if I wanted to participate in an advent ornament exchange.  It is based off the devotion, A Meaningful Christmas.

The way it works is you get 24 people who are each willing to make an ornament that represents a specific scripture reference.  After getting your scripture, you then make 24 of the same ornament.  Before December begins you have a fun get together with lots of treats.  We had a sweet and savory side and even had a hot chocolate bar!  Then everyone puts out their ornaments and you put them in your box.  

 My ornament I made.  I call him 

To create this cute guy, start with two clothespins.  Paint one brown completely, the other one leave a little white at the bottom.  Then glue them together and attach googly eyes.  I used a scripture I found online to make his little sack.  Wrap raffia around him to complete the look.

 Here are all 24 of my donkeys!  I painted them in the hospital while Raegan was recovering!

My second 'Made it' isn't Christmas related, but for my twins December birthday.  They are in love with Sesame Street, so that is our theme!  I created this cute pinspired invite.

Check back for updates on the party and all things Christmas!


  1. Oh my gosh! Those invites are adorable! And the donkeys are super cute, too! I've seen reindeer made like that, but not donkeys!
