At the first part of November, I asked my dad if he would build me a table for our entryway.  I found the plans at Knock off Wood and then he revised them to his own liking.  He delivered it the week before Christmas.  I seriously LOVE this table.  My kids have been warned that they are not to touch it and they aren't allowed to open the front door unless I am standing there.  Here are some pics:

Wooden Nativity Puzzle

My dad cut this out for me and then I painted all the pieces.  The kids love playing with it and it is a perfect way to explain the real reason of Christmas to them.

This is what it looks like all put together.

I made these cute little pillows the other day.  I really like how the tree one turned out - not too sure about the ornament one.

This years ornaments. . .

This year I knitted the kids mitten ornaments.  I wrote down their favorite things and put a picture of each of them inside their ornaments.  They wanted to take them off the tree and wear them - at least I know they like them!

Kaden's are white

Joy and Noel

My dad cut these letters out for me.  I just used scrapbook paper because I wasn't feeling like painting the day I did them.  The paper is mod-podged on and then sprayed with glitter.  They turned out really cute!

This is the wreath I made this year.  I crocheted the 4 ornaments and then added large jingle bells and a big red bow.

Gobble Gobble!

I LOVE how this little gobbler turned out.  I used an applique pattern and cut out scrapbook paper and then glued it all together.  Isn't he cute?!

I needed another Fall-ish decoration and I found a cute little template on a fellow crafters blog.  (Which one it was - I don't recall - SORRY!!)  This is what I came up with:

Tile Art

This is my November version of tile art!  It is kind of hard to read because of the glare from the flash.  I promise it looks much better in person.
