I mentioned in my last post that Christmas 2012 was 'Year of the Homemade Gift'.
Here's one of the gifts I made (finished about 11pm Christmas Eve!).
Hubby took Liberty and her cousin to a local theme park for their birthdays.
These two cousins just adore each other and they had the best day!
I sent the camera with hubby but he only took six pictures, luckily this photo was perfect!
I made two of these shadow boxes exactly the same, one for each of them.
Here are a couple of other shadow box pictures I made last year...
In December 2011 Liberty was in her first ever ballet recital and she wore this glorious royal blue tutu. It may aslo have been her last ever ballet recital as she no longer wants to be a ballerina!
I found the ballerina tights packaging at an Op shop.
The blue and silver ribbons were in her hair for the performance.
The ballerina sheet music was from an Op shop too, a lucky find!
And I made this shadow box as a surprise for the mother of the little girl I did the ballerina party for.
I used the first page of the vintage 'Ballerina' sheet music in this one. All the other bits 'n'pieces were from the party.
More of the homemade Christmas gifts coming soon...
