Traditions are important to me. Since my Grandma passed away I feel like there has been a shift. She never got to meet my kids and never got to see me as a mother. Traditions shifted. Now my mom is the Grandma, and I am the mom.
New traditions are now blended with our old traditions.
I found this list from Country Living Magazine and I am set on incorporating these activities into our December Holiday Season.
Check out my latest project. Michaels has an awesome 50% off coupon that makes choosing yarn even harder. My next hat is going to be made with Patons 100% wool. Stay tuned!
It is so much fun to metal stamp the aluminum ring! Talk about a cheap and fun project.
Custom/ Personalized Ring
I use the impressart collection to personalize the ring. Really easy! It just takes a few minutes to stamp the letters into the metal and it adds such a great finishing touch. I stamped this first ring (on the baby blue hat) on my coffee table and it created a ripple in the lettering. I now stamp on a piece of granite as my base and the ring sits much more flat (in the black and white photo of my guy).
For my boys, I stamp our last name so things don’t get lost in the preschool lost and found.

The pattern I used was inspired from this one I got free over at Ravelry. It knitted up quick.
