    Default my stockings *updated*

    ok so i decided to take the easy route and bought those iron-on glitter letters. and since i couldnt find my iron for some odd reason, i had to use my... ::gulp:: flat iron (hair straightener) it actually worked pretty well! these were more plush than i wanted, but all i could find so the parts around the letters got ironed down too. Ryans name on his stocking is crooked because its only 4 letters long and its hard to place only 4 letters on a big stocking!! im going to redo his tomorrow since the stockings are only about $2 at walmart. DH says its cool like that because it looks like a kid did his . and he said mine turned out the best! but thats because my name has 6 letters and the less space inbetween, the better! oh and the little one with the K is for my little Kylee Marie that will be here in April she got a small one since she isnt actually here yet! LOL ok ok on to the pic..

    when they are hanging, you cant actually see the flat iron marks lol



    ***UPDATE***

    here is Ryan's new updated stocking..it looks a ton better!!



    and here they are hanging...i love how the flash caught the iron marks..i swear you cant see them if you are sitting on the couch!

    Those turned out cute! I keep wanting to re-do mine, since I used glitter glue and they are much more crooked than Ryan's. I love that you created your niece one too...ahh!

    so cute! I beaded my kids' names onto their stockings. Bentli wont get one this year, but I will go buy 4 high end stockings on clearance after christmas and re-bead them all so they match... (yeah, I'm a dork like that)

    :::blushing::: LOL! Yes, I know you're pregnant! Don't ask me why I wrote niece?!? I'm blaming it on MY preggo brain!!! Sorry! Guess I was talking to my DH about his nieces at the time of posting and my brain's wires got crossed.
