Merry christmas & a Happy New year from my family to yours!
(I am taking a small break to get ready for the holidays! My husband is on vacation time and the kids are on winter break. Thank you all for your support & making 2008 a great year for daintydaisies! I have so many things in the works for the New year.. I will keep you posted! )

Here are some gifts the kids and I have been working on... we made homemade Banana breads for all of our grandparents (the kids great grandparents) and I made this cute set for my nephew who just turned *3* I think it came out sooo cute! Fun and easy to make as well.. no pattern just kind of went along as I was making it. The crayon roll holds 8 large washable crayons and some scrap papers! Fun stuff! I hope he likes it! I have a few more things to make so off I go......
Have a great day!

The kids and I stopped Friday night at the local book store for a special book signing. A really good customer of mine(has been since I opened my business over 4 years ago) & friend wrote a really sweet childrens book about an experience in her life. I am so proud of her & the book is sooo cute! If you are local head down to Apple Blossom books and pick up a copy! 10% goes to charity.
Here is Jen & The kids! :)
The kids and I also made their very first gingerbread house (we cheated and bought a kit) They still had fun... although Jada had a little cold this weekend and was totally not her noraml creative self! It turned out very cute & they are oh so proud of it!
It is chilly cold today and I have a few appointments.. I am also a little sad my sweet lil' christmas flag on the mailbox blew away last night! (I bought it in New jersey when my Grandma was sick) Anyhow.. I have lots to do today!
Have a warm and cozy day.. if you can!
