Holiday Craft Ideas

Happy Holidays! I'm finally on my holiday break! It was a busy first semester but it sure went by fast! I thought I would share what I made for my co-workers.

Altered matchboxes. Little holiday purses. 

The kitchen table taken over by crafting supplies

I went a little crazy with the owls! (Sing the song.... "one of these owls is
not like the others, one of these owls, does not belong"). Can you spot it??

The owl bags were SUPER easy to make. I just filled them up with candy. Wishing everyone a restful holiday break!

12 in 12 Linky

I'm linking up with Miss Kindergarten and A Teeny Tiny Teacher

Here are my favorites from 2012

12. Favorite movie you watched:
The Hunger Games. If you have read my blog you know my daughter is a major Hunger Games fan. She convinced me to read the books too.Since we both read the books, we had to see the movie too!

11. Favorite TV series:
I haven’t had cable for over 10 years. I really don’t watch TV too often. I mainly watch things on Netflix. It all seems “new” to me but really half the stuff I watch has been on TV for a LONG time.

10. Favorite restaurant:
La Parrilla Suiza. A local Mexican restaurant. I love the Tortilla soup! It’s delicious!

9. Favorite new thing you tried:
The spicy mayo that you eat with sushi. I can’t get enough of that stuff when I eat sushi!

8. Favorite gift you got:
My Iphone! I always knew I'd like an Iphone. It's like night and day compared to my Android!

7. Favorite thing you pinned: This just makes me smile!

6. Favorite blog post:
Last week of summer vacation. mainly because I shared all my management signs and there are 1193 repins of my photo of my signs on pinterest.

5. Best accomplishment:
Best accomplishment for 2012 is being able to do Zumba again. I tore a tendon in my foot in March and seriously thought I would never be able to do Zumba again. It’s been almost 10 months and I have been going to Zumba for a month now twice a week. My foot still gets sore but it’s more than I ever thought I’d be able to do again.

4. Favorite picture: My daughter surprised me on my birthday!

3. Favorite memory:
Back in September, we decided as a family to have a “No Technology Time” in our household for an hour. That means no TV, phones, computers. During “No Technology Time” we come together as a family and just hang out together. Many of my favorite memories are from this time because it is our silliest moments as a family.

2. Goal for 2013:
Continue with “No Technology Time” with my family

1. One Little Word:

It's beginning to feel like winter....

If you have noticed in many of my monthly currently updates, I mention the weather often. Mainly that it's not cool where I live. Today was the first day in many many months that I was actually cold most of the day. I think if the outside air fan would have stopped turning on all day in my room I would have felt warmer. I was beginning to think I could hang meat in my room because it felt so cold. Yes, I did try and turn on the heater but it never kicked on.

When I got off work I turned on the seat warmers and turned on the car heater. I guess this is why it's good I don't live in a place that gets cooler weather, I apparently can't handle it! Wishing everyone a great week!

Currently - December

Wow, it's hard to believe it's the last month of 2012! I think every year goes by a little faster. I'm linking up with Farley Oh'BoyFourthGrade.

I think "wanting" on the last two months have been the same - cooler weather!!
