christmas stockings

i'm tired and cranky and i'm more than ready to go home for christmas! {we leave on wednesday, and i can.not.wait. literally} 

until then, i finally got around to getting out some of our christmas decorations. stockings are my favorite. i made them during our first christmas as a married couple.

we got a new kitty since last year, so i made his stocking today :)
{i got really dorky and made the mice match the kitties}

  2. I just made our third round of stocking since getting married. :) I have saved all the others, we started out with three (one for the dog) Now we are up to seven and the many animals don't have them anymore, but with four kids, a grandma and us - the mantle is full!

  9. these are PRECIOUS!!!! just precious.

    my favorite holiday tradition is the stockings exchanged with boyfriend, full of little things... everything from yummy smelling lotion to a piece of fruit. Sometimes it's really all about the little things.

    i need to commission you to make us some stockings :)

  14. Visiting from SITS and I have to say I love, love, love you stocking. My oldest daughter would go crazy for this. Was it hard? It is really, really cute! Although I'm pretty not great at stuff like this. Super, super cute! I'm your newest follower. Sorry, I got excited. I just know she would adore that stocking.
