Eliza’s Ornament a Day

Eliza's Ornament a Day | Week 1 #ornamentaday

Here’s a peek into Eliza’s and my Ornament a Day project! Ornament a Day is just like it sounds: each day in December, Eliza (7) and I make an ornament together. We’ve been doing this since 2010 and have amassed some pretty awesome handmade ornaments (and new craft skills!) along … Read the rest

December Daily | The End

December Daily 2011

This concludes the crazy 24 hours of a ridiculous number of December Daily posts.

Firstly, here’s the end of the book:

The last page has all of Eliza’s ornaments from her Ornament a Day.

I ended up loving this book, but obviously the project needs to go on a … Read the rest

Eliza’s Ornament a Day 2011

Ornament a Day 2011

We didn’t quite have time to post about all of the ornaments Eliza made in December, but we wanted to photo all of them before all the Christmas stuff around here gets boxed. (Eliza’s ornaments have their own boxes, by year).

This year we didn’t make an ornament every day … Read the rest

Eliza's Ornament a Day Trees

Eliza’s special trees are filling up!

We haven’t been very good about posting Eliza’s Ornament a Day projects, but we’re still truckin’ along behind the scenes here. We’ve missed a few days (hence the gap in the title), but we’ll make them up by doubling up this week when it … Read the rest

Eliza’s Ornament a Day: Days 3-5

We may not have time to post about Eliza’s Ornament a Day everyday (or December Daily, but I’ll get there, I promise), but we’re still getting them made!

It has been insane around here (We thought the shop would slow down after Cyber Monday. Man, were we wrong!), so … Read the rest

Eliza’s Ornament a Day: Day 2

Eliza's Ornament a Day: Day 2

Just like last year, Eliza’s making an ornament every day until Christmas! Day 2 was an aluminum foil house, based on these ornaments.

Eliza's Ornament a Day: Day 2

The first step was to freehand a house on cardboard. We used a record album cover, because we’ve got those to spare.

We cut it … Read the rest

Eliza’s Ornament a Day: Day 1

Eliza's Ornament a Day: Day 1

Just like last year, Eliza’s making an ornament every day until Christmas! Day 1 is a tin can lid snowflake (sort of).

We had a ton of can lids leftover from our Canned Tree Advent Calendar, so yesterday I chose to use one of them for Day 1 … Read the rest

Getting Ready for December

I am generally a no-Christmas-before-Thanksgiving kind of person. It annoys me to no end that some local radio stations start playing holiday music straight away after Halloween. Fall is my favorite season, and I don’t want to be rushed into Winter. Not one bit.

That said, we have big crafty … Read the rest

Eliza’s Ornament a Day Round Up

Some of you will remember that Eliza tried to make an ornament every day in December until Christmas. As the projects required parental supervision and Mr. Jonas was well on his way (not to mention the crazy amount of Etsy orders), we were not exactly successful. We got to 18 … Read the rest

December Daily Part 2: Day 3-7… Plus Music Monday

I FINALLY took photos of my December Daily album to share with you! But then I realized that there were over 50 photos of the book. A little much for one post. So I decided to break it up a bit.

You can see part one here

I took another … Read the rest
