Cutest Hairstyles

If you think I came up with these cute hairstyles, you're wrong. I found an awesome website that is dedicated to showing the cutest hairstyles and showing you how to do them. It's called "The Story of a Princess and her hair". I have her button on the side of my site if you want to go there and check it out. She does amazing things with her daughters hair. These hairstyles that I did were my first attempts and I think they turned out pretty good considering I and my daughter are "beginners". I got my daughter to hold still by letting her play the computer while I did her hair. (Hey, don't judge. It works:) I can't wait for her hair to be longer. These styles will look even cuter. Anyway, this is one of my new favorite sites.

See what I've done....

I love Heritage Makers and I wanted to share what I've done with it so far...

These are playing cards that I did for my husband for his birthday. I did playing cards because when we were dating, we loved to play uno, skipbo, speed, etc. and we played every chance we got. When These arrived and we looked at them, they were so nice that we didn't want to play with them, but display them. (Of course with H.M.'s heirloom guarantee that if anything happens to any of your products, they will replace it for 1/2 off we can afford to play with them.)
I also have done some samples of Christmas cards that you might like. If anyone is interested in me doing Christmas cards for them just email me or leave a comment. I can even have Heritage Makers send them out to your family and friends for you.
These are postcards that can be customized with more or less photos. That's what I like about H.M. You can put on as many photos as you want and design cards (or whatever you're making) however you want. They also have over 10,000 templates to choose from. And the printing is QUALITY! It's awesome! You can go to my site and view some of my projects and see for yourself how great this company really is. If you are interested in becoming one of my customers, you can leave me a comment or email me. (or you can sign up while you're at my site.) Thank you and have a very Merry Christmas!

Snow flakes in the house?

Today, my kids and I decided to make our own snowflakes, since it probably won't snow again this year like it did last year. Of course we're not giving up hope. We're just trying to get in the Christmas spirit. (Not that we need help to get in it.) We love Christmas around here.
Abby and Elsa had fun making them. Abby felt a little frustrated at first when she would open hers up and it fell apart, but she got better as she went. Elsa loved making different ones, and she made some pretty cool ones. Dallin even made a couple. I made a couple, then really got into it and made everyone's initials in different snowflakes. See if you can see them. (D for Dallin, C for Calvin, E for Elsa and A for Abby.) This was a fun, spur of the moment activity and now we have snowflakes up in our dining room to help us stay in the Christmas spirit.

Kelly Moore
Her favorite Christmas memory is

"My mother is from England and my favorite Christmas tradition is popping crackers around the dinner table, arm over arm, and then putting on the silly paper hats and reading the corny jokes inside. We do it every year, and now that I am married with a family of my own, we still do it. (I brought the stuff to make crackers at the Michaels store in Canada and made my own this year!)"
