They are multiplying!!!

9 cookie cutters
10 oranges
11 juices pouches
6 Letters of the alphabet

I am making a numbers book for Charli for Christmas. It is a book of things from 1-20. I have had to get pretty creative with some of the items to add up to a certain number, but overall it has been fun and I think she is really gonna like it when it is complete. She has no idea that I am making this book for her so please don't tell her if she asks. I was lining things up today and taking pictures and she kept asking me "Mommy what are you doing?'' I would just simply reply " Oh just taking some pictures of your toys, isn't it fun!!!"

Matching dish towels and pot holders. Funky Cats
Dick and Jane dish towels and pot holders.
Lemon and orange dish towels
Charli's first monogram shirt!!!
I sewed on Finch and the # 3 to the back. It looks like a jersey. It really turned out cute and Charli loves her new updated shirt.

So my dish towels and pot holders are some Christmas presents for some family members. I have tried to be crafty this Christmas. Since starting my Charli'z business I have been very inspired to make, sew or craft things instead of buying them and waisting money. I always enjoy something hand made than store bought. So I hope all my gifts are well liked and loved this year. All of these were so easy and not too time consuming.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!!!

We picked out our Christmas tree today!!! Charli was so excited!!!
She decided it would be fun to sit on one that was laying down. I had to take a pic of that.
Charli really had a lot of fun touching, pointing, feeling and looking at all the trees. We have it standing up in the tree stand right now and we will decorate it later tonight. So fun, I love all the things that go along with Christmas. It really has been so much more fun with a child.
