I was blown away this Christmas at all the handmade goodies my family made for eachother as gifts. My cousin John by far out did us all. There is just an overwhelming feeling of love that comes along with a handmade gift. I am always amazed that someone would take the time and effort to make something just for me.

If you've been reading my blog for awhile you that my niece, Madelyn James, has completely stolen my heart. There is nothing I love more than spending some time running around, screaming, and being crazy with my little peanut! This Christmas my mom and sister made me one of the best Christmas gifts I've ever recieved. It was a framed picture made by cutting circles of Madelyn's first fingerpainting. Last Christmas I bought Maddie a set of fingerpaints. When we pulled them out and started painting Maddie was a little wary of the texture but eventually started having some fun with it. However I think she had more fun squeezing all the paint out of the bottles ranther than painting.

What a great way to save and display childrens artwork? They cut her painting into circles, then using those circles created a design on black cardstock. After they finished they matted and framed the artwork. I LOVE IT!!! It's already displayed proudly in my living room.
