More Christmas Decorations

This basket was given to me by my sister-in-law a few years ago. And the Mary & Joseph came from my Mother-in-law.
This snowman Tin I picked up at JoAnns fabrics, Snowmen is my "thing" My brother got me the candle when he visited for Thanksgiving. The dish and sparkling balls came from the Craft Wharehouse.

The Snow Couple on the bottom was made for me by my Mother-In-Law the year I married 1991. And the crate my hubby has had forever, it belonged to his Grandfather.
So, here are a few more of my decorations.
I have been finishing up a few Christmas gifts, and doing preperations for the Holiday.

Homemade Christmas gift

This is what the inside looks like, then I placed a Gift Certificate for dinner to their favorite place----Hula Boy Grill

My sister-in-law and her husband went to Hawaii erlier this year. So, in honor of their trip (they are still excited) I made them a few gifts using the photos that their daughter snuck to me.
First, this is a little gift box I picked up, painted, applied Hawaiian themed cardstock and decorations.

This is the outside, sorry the pictures are kinda crappy.

Then I picked up a fairly in-expensive clock and made them this using photos from their vacation. I thought it turned out cute. I always prefer making my gifts, and being a scrapbooker, these gifts are the type I love to make.
