Reindeer Food 2010

Here is the new poem label that I created this year for Magic Reindeer Food.  I designed it in PaintShopPro8 and the orignial size is 1524X1524.  For this since they are kind of small you can paste the picture into a word doc many times and print them on card stock.  Cut them out and staple them onto snack size ziplock bags.  The digital kit is called Santa's Workshop and can be found at GottaPixel.


1 cup rolled oats
2-6 Tbsp red colored sugar
2-6 Tbsp. green colored sugar
1 - 2 Tbsp glitter


Mix the ingredients together and place in a plastic bag, adding as much colored sugar as you like for a festive effect.

Sprinkle this reindeer food outside tonight.
The moonlight will make it sparkle bright.
As the reindeer fly and roam.
This will guide them to your home.


Snowman Soup 2010

Miss V wanted to make her classmates Snowman Soup again this year and two for her teachers.  I came up with two different designs.  I create them in PaintShopPro8.  The orginal size are 2032x2032.  I print them on Avery Postecards #8387.

Here is the "recipe" for Snowman Soup

The recipe for Snowman Soup:

1 individual pack hot chocolate mix
3 Hershey's chocolate kisses
10-15 mini-marshmallows
1 Candy Cane

Place all in a pretty Christmas clear ziplock bag or "goody" bag.  Attach the poem with a festive ribbon.

The first one is the one I designed from the Snow Fun Kit on Gottapixel.  This one was for her classmates.

This is the one I designed for the teachers, it was from the Winter Frost Kit at Gottapixel.

The poems are a little different at the beginning.
For the two teachers, I found plain white ceremic mugs at Target for $1.99 each.  I also picked up Snowman Gift bags in the $1.00 spot.  For the kids I just used small paper snowman goodie bags and stapled the poem to the fronts.

Here she is with all her Snowman Soup gifts.  (for her own protection I did block out her face)

Christmas Pageant Angels

I volunteered to help make costumes for our Church's Christmas Pageant this year.  I used the same McCall's Pattern 2854 as Miss V's Trixie the Halloween Fairy costume.  I did make them in the full length.  I also used a pretty white crushed panne' velvet.  It wasn't a stark white, but more of a winter white.  I ended up making five Angels with this pattern.  At the last minute one of the girls had to switch and be a Wiseman.  For the wings and halo, they were purchased through Buy Costumes.

For Gabriel's costume I used Simplicity 4797 pattern since the young lady playing him was a bit older and taller.  I made the dress and put gold trimming on the bottom of the dress and down the sleeves.  For her belt I used a gold twisted rope.  The wings and halo also came from Buy Costumes, but a different style.

Here is a close up of the gold trimming.  It was very pretty.

I totally forgot how that I love to sew simple things.  I even told Miss V that I found a pattern to make pajama pants and she wanted of course MONKEY ones.  On one trip through Joann's she found every single fabric that had monkeys on it.
