I follow a bunch of wonderful blogs, and have gotten a TON of inspiration from blogland about homemade Christmas gifts..
I knew that I wanted to make Aidan something from the heart from Mommy this year for Christmas & here's what I came up with!
Aidan loves to color, so I made a family coloring book for him & tried my hand at making my own crayons too! (which was super easy!!!)
I used a silicone baking mold to make the crayons,
they popped right out & turned out so cute!
I used Photoshop to make the coloring pages,
his book is full of our family & a bunch of pictures of Aidan too! :)
Aidan's second gift is a snowman kit!
I had fun picking out all of the snowman materials & painting the box to hold everything in, I made sure to get enough for TWO snowmen.. don't want just one to get lonely! :)
I got my ideas from several different bloggers & am so happy that I made the time to put some heart into a couple of Aidan's presents!
I hope to keep doing this for several more years.. well, until my son is staring at me, rolling his eyes in digust.. saying "geez Mom!!!" :)
