Christmas Stockings & Stuff...

Life is busy.
Life is good.
Life is getting ready for Christmas...

Thanksgiving is over.
Time to decorate for Christmas.
An event..that last about a week.
I take my time and enjoy each moment...because it ends all too quickly.

First on my list this year, "Thing 4's" Christmas Stocking.


I decided to make our Christmas stockings...never being satisfied with what I found at the stores.
{Sometimes I am a little picky}




The stockings were basically free.
I used old blankets, shirts, pillows, ribbons, buttons.
I love how each turned out.
If I had to pick a have it would be the striped one...Thing 3's...I used his baby blanket.
{I enjoy having sentiments involved everywhere possible}



The only stocking I didn't make was my own. 
The cupcake and coffee stocking. {Can you say, PERFECT!}
I bought it a few years back on Etsy at The Lowelly Worm...the stockings are adorable. 



Being away last Christmas I decided to wait on making "Thing 4's" Stocking.
I thought it would be nice to use something from his "baby-hood" like I was able to do with "Thing 3".
I'm so glad I waited.
It is going to be just perfect. 

Do you have any Christmas Stocking Traditions?
We always open the Stocking Presents on Christmas Eve...
