Christmas....Soul Sister Style!
It's the most wonderful time of the year...celebrating Christmas with my Soul Sisters!! It is one of the things I look forward to most at the holidays...click HERE to see our first annual S.S. christmas......and HERE to see last years shin-dig. Ms. Joy got the ball rolling this year...we agreed again to make ornaments for each of our "Sisters" and meet for dinner. Marzipan was the first to arrive and she snagged us a table. For some reason we have gotten into trying to guess our waiters name, and we all think it is utterly hysterical ?????? But Marzipan quizzed him and she knew what it was and made us all guess it....with just one little hint...it had 3 letters! After much guessing and trying to get it out of him we found out it was Ken.....but we didn't really like that so we called him Gus all night. Ya kinda had to be there...like I said, it's hysterical to us ?????
Anyhoo....here we are for our group photo shoot...
When I found out about our party and ornament exchange, my first thought was to knit little mini pairs of mittens and hang them on a string....so I went into my yarn stash and saw that I have a boat load of yarn and kinda got side tracked knitting everyone a fingerless pair of gloves! They turned out really cute....more on all of my holiday knitting in another post to come.
But let me share with you the SUPER.CUTE ornaments my crafty little sisters came up with this year.....I love them all!!!! The hand-stitched felt cupcake was made by Marzipan (which I almost made as well!!!!!) She sent a text last weekend while she was in NYC with her hubs saying that she was working on our ornaments. Now THAT is love!!
Girl in the sticks bought all the S's that Kohl's had and put them together to make our very own bedazzled Soul Sister monograms....Soul Sisters, or Super Sexy???? hmmmmm...
And can you get over how adorable the little tea cup and saucer are that Ms. Joy made????? She actually glued the cup and saucer together and made miniture tea bags with our own little personlized tags!!!!! With glitter snowflakes and our intials to boot. We ooohed and ahhhed over these for a while.
Jennifer Juniper has had a crew of Amish men in her house for days finishing off her basement and could only work with what supplies she had in her house...so check this out......paper christmas trees. VERY ingenious!!!
I actually made cupcakes as well. I ran out right away and got my supplies....but then got side-tracked making the gloves for DAYS....and only got going on making these sweet little things the afternoon before...so thank goodness they literally only took a minute and forty-five seconds to make!
I packaged them up in a cupcake box so it looked like I got them at the bakery! It was a snowy, blustery night...but being with my Soul Sisters warmed my heart AND my soul.....thank you so much dear friends!!! Merry Christmas!
