Crafting stuff is SO fun, especially when it’s Christmas-related!! So, of course, I like to make a few gifts. Last year, I made my dad a clay model of the horse that he liked to ride, and made one for myself, too. I think they turned out really nicely, and the paint job is my favorite part.
By the way, I used the same cookie cutter for these as I did for a lot of the gingerbread cookies that I made a few days ago (check them out on Instagram @thekalestorm 🙂 ). We’ve really gotten a lot of mileage out of those cutters. I don’t even know how old they are! And there are a couple whose intended identities are…. ambiguous. For example, the sleigh/elf’s boot/snow boot/pi minus one leg, and the Michigan mitten/glove/bird!
Anyway, though, for this year’s handmade Christmas presents, I made my parents each a mini scrapbook documenting a few moments of 2015. I didn’t even know I was going to do that project until last weekend, so it was an intense few days of scrapbooking, but it was SO fun and totally worth it, especially when I saw how much my mom and dad loved them. Here are a few photos!
Those photos were taken by our new camera!! This was a family Christmas present, to us and from us. It’s a k3 Pentax, and is probably the fanciest piece of technology I’ve ever used, aside from my computer. I’m so excited to be able to put better photos on TKS!
I think that tomorrow I’ll post a Christmas recap, with a bunch of photos from the new camera. But for now, here’s a little preview of the World’s Most Documented Dog 😀
