Now, I'm the person buying them... and I wish that I had done it earlier!
Luckily, you can still find them at Michael's and Hobby Lobby right now for 50% off... so grab your car keys and get moving.
I'll probably do a quick tutorial on these in the future because they really are fun and even a first-timer can totally blow this one out of the water.

SUPER easy, very rewarding.
Along with the ornaments, I also made a few tiles to give out as "thank you"s to the receptionists and the nurse at my doctor's office. They've been phenomenal whenever I've gone in there, both before and after Liam came. I wanted to show them how much they were appreciated.
I love that Rudolph file. And glitter vinyl is becoming my favorite thing EVER.
Also made a thermos for my dad. (No worries, he doesn't read my blog. Crafting is not his thing and I keep him posted about the family through my mom and Facebook.)
He wanted a Harley for the longest time and finally got one a few years ago. I remembered growing up how he would always talk about owning one. Now he's got one and he loves it. Harley-anything goes over really well. Dad has always been kind of hard to shop for, but this is right up his alley.
Finally, today I finally decided that I didn't want to look at my horrible mailbox for one second longer. I picked up some black glossy spray paint and got to work.
My mailbox went from this:
A sad, raggedy and generally ugly mailbox.
*cue angels singing*
I was so happy with how it turned out. Honestly, just a little bit of paint and some sprucing up will really make something old, new again.
