I decided to scrap all of our New Year trees! LOL
This one was fun! I collected plactic yogurt bottles and made cute little snowmen out of them. Boys took part in decorating too. When I saw beautiful snowmen freebie by Pillowgirl (it was released a year ago but still available here) I was sooo happy I had perfect designs for my page!!

Rattle Tree

Hello everyone, so nice to see you! :))
Finally I have a LO with a story to tell! :))

Three years ago we had a hard time instead of a real holiday season. I didn’t even had time and money to have our New Year tree decorated... By that time my boys had a huge box of rattles they didn’t even play with. And I decided to put them on the tree. It turned out fun and safe! LOL

This house was my Great-grandmother’s. We used to celebrate every holiday there with all the family. I'm 6 and my cousin Ira is 5. This kitchen cupboard is at my Mom's and instead of the old house there's a 9-storeyed one.
