Princess Castle

 For Christmas Lena wanted a princess doll castle.  When I looked into buying it I was surprised by how much it cost and then when I read reviews that all said the pieces break pretty easily, I was not too excited to buy it.  So I decided to make one myself.  I bought this bookcase at the thrift store and turned it into a doll castle.  I had a lot of fun doing it and Lena absolutely loves it.  Just don't tell her that mommy made it because you know she asked Santa for it.

More metal stamping

I decided to try some more metal stamping so I made this necklace for my mother-in-law for Christmas.  It has her and my father-in-law's names in the middle and all their kids around the outside.  I didn't take into account that some of their names are longer than others so some of them are too squished, but hey I'm learning, right?  Other than that, I think it turned out pretty good.

Family Home Evening Boards

I made a few family home evening boards for my siblings' families for Christmas this year.  It didn't turn out exactly how I had planned but I think they turned out pretty good.  I just painted the board and hammered some nails into it.  Then I stamped metal washers with the family members' names.
