Prim Stockings

Prim Stockings

Is this the busiest Saturday of the year or what? Are you in the kitchen baking cookies? Did you venture out shopping? Bleh! Thank goodness I'm done with that. Maybe you're wrapping presents or planning your Christmas dinner? Whatever is keeping you busy today, I hope you're not stressing yourself out too much about it.

I've actually got it together this year. My presents are wrapped, grocery shopping is all done, meal(s) are planned (Christmas Eve & Christmas Day), and my crafting is just about complete. I have just a few finishing touches to make.

Every year I make a home made ornament. I guess you could call it a tradition.

I do have to admit, it's getting harder and harder for me to come up with new ideas.

I am no where near as talented as some crafters out there, so I'm limited as to what I can make.
I've done clay ornaments, and salt dough ornaments, sparkly snowmen, and even doggy bones over the years.

This year I decided to make some little primitive stocking.

I bought some white infant socks, coffee stained them to really grunge them up and make them look like they were just pulled out of a chest in the attic.

I rusted up some safety pins and bells, filled them with soft stuffing and tucked some Sweet Annie in the top.

One of my favorite things is to walk into the house of a friends or family member and see my ornaments hanging on their tree.

When someone tells you "I think of you every time I hang that ornament on my tree" it just fills your heart up.
