Adorable and Memorable Christmas Ornaments

So my friend had posted these on her blog and I had to repost her pictures and link to FILLMORE FUN for this fun craft project.
So here are the adorable ornaments that she pulled together that have pictures of her cute kids, their initial, Milestones from that year. These are Awesome!!

Here are some close up shots too.  She gives more detailed instructions on sizes of things on her blog.  But what a great way to pass on that info to your kids, who really care about when they hit all those milestone!!  I'm so impressed that she had the information and went back and did them for each of her kids.  

Thanks Lori, for letting me share!!

Dry erase Calendar

So my Sister-in-law (the awesome one behind the Creative Crate) had come up with a great frame remake.  Turning a frame into dry erase calendar.  She also decided that it would be a great Super Saturday project.  Don't you just love Super Saturdays...Right in time for Christmas gifts!!   And so inexpensive too.  BTW, I hope all of you realize how much work goes into those Super Saturdays. Anyways....

Well when she did hers originally, she drew on the back of the glass with a permanent marker and then cut out vinyl with her Cricut.
Well when she approached me to do the vinyl, I had a little easier idea for the grid too.  And see what she did with it!!  I LoVe IT!!

Here's a few up close pictures for you.
Don't you love that beautiful paper she put on the back.  You could change it for all the season to match your decor!! Or if like the idea of it just being the wall behind it, it always looks good that way too.

This is what the vinyl looks like, but it comes mirror image from this cause it's applied to the back of the glass so when you use the dry erase marker on the front side, you can wipe it off and don't have to worry about the vinyl moving!

Vinyl sizes
8x10= $6.50+$3 s+h
11x14=$9.00+$5 s+h
16x20=$17.00+$5 s+h
These sizes are based on the size of frame needed e.i the 8x10 vinyl will fit in a standard 8x10 frame on the glass.

I have black, choc. brown, brown, tan, cream, and white.  
If you'd like another color, I do have others, but these are the neutrals I have on hand.
Remember: Orders over $40.00 have free shipping. 

Anyone else think of ideas that could go along with this!!
