Merry KISSmas

My husband has always disliked posing for the cheesy happy family Christmas cards. He has spent the past year trying to convince me that instead of doing one of those cheesy (traditional!) cards, that we do something funny instead. I think I delivered.

I poured over dozens of KISS album covers and marketing materials, making sure the design really captured the KISS style. I think I did alright!

I thought the hardest part would be getting the boys to wear the make-up, but it wasn't a problem at all. They thought it was "like Halloween all over again." And both of them really got into the persona of their rocker characters!

The feedback from our friends and family has been great too. They love the funny card. We might just have to do another one next year. Any ideas for what theme we should do?

Rock Tshirt Quilt

This post is almost a year late!

Last Christmas, as a surprise present for my husband, I took a bunch of his old concert t-shirts and made a quilt for him. I just realized that I never posted a picture of it!

These aren't nearly all of his concert tees, but these are some of the ones I knew he wouldn't divorce me over cutting up. :)
