I mentioned that I was really into repurposing lately, and I finally took some pictures of some of the other stuff I've done. This shirt I made for Iris mostly because we didn't have any coordinating shirts for family pictures and she was the only one that didn't have anything grey. So I took one of my old long sleeved t-shirts that I don't wear anymore and made one for her. I love how it turned out, especially the ruffles on the front. You can see one of the family pictures on my other blog HERE.

I didn't know what to do for Donevan's Christmas outfit. I'd have to say that girls are easier in that department. All there really is is sweater vests. I didn't have time to crochet one, so I decided to make one out of an old men's sweater vest. Of course I wanted to have a nice shirt to go under it too. So I used an old men's button-up shirt and made it into a little boys shirt. I think they both turned out quite nicely. I tried to get some pictures of him in the outfit, but that boy doesn't sit still for very long. Next time he wears it, I'll have to snap some.

This year for Christmas treats I tried my hand at making chocolate truffles. They were surprisingly easy and very yummy. I think I will have to make them more often. Let me know if you want me to post the recipe.
