We're so thrilled to be guesting for Tasha today- we love her blog (and think she's pretty great as well), so of course we were excited to put together a little Handmade Holiday love for her series!
kojodesigns. We’re both stay at home mama’s…
who love to make things. We have slight addictions to pretty paper and fabric, love nothing more than putting together a kickin' party or shower, and both still subscribe to Martha Stewart Weddings even though we've each been married for 7+ years- haha!
We also love Christmas and we LOVE family traditions. One of our favorite holiday traditions is to give each member of our family an ornament each year. I'd highly recommend this tradition- it makes decorating your Christmas tree a nostalgic adventure. Each year, I unwrap a Fimo clay snowflake from our high school years (a nod to Jord's fascination with that stuff), an organza bag stenciled with a silhouette of the three kings and filled with frankincense from when Jord lived in the middleeast, a felt owl from the year I was pregnant with my son Burke and a whole pile of other gems. See- a nostalgic adventure. :)
To make a favorite book ornament, you'll need:
-pages from a Goodwill bound (or Goodwill found!) book... I ripped several pages out of the textbooks I used for shelving in Burke's room
-scraps of muslin
-12" of ribbon
-sewing machine and thread
I just love these ladies over at Kojo Designs. Really. Truly. They make me happy. I love reading their blog and I am always inspired when I go there. Always. You should see the parties they put on. A.m.a.z.i.n.g. Aren't these ornaments darling? I too like to make an ornament every year. I am loving these cute little books. If you want to see more of their inspiration head over to Kojo Designs. You won't be disappointed. At least I never am.
