stockings, sleepy stella, and coasters

Our stocking are hung...




& the tree is lit!


But for some reason sweet Stells does not seem to share my excitement...
 

I feel like she is thinking "mom please stop bugging me!" I don't catch her this tired except when she comes home from playing with another dog ... and when it happens I soak it up!

While I was in the holiday spirit & snapping photos {wishing I had a better camera ... or that I knew how to use the one I have}, I decided to finish up my final gifts. I followed this tutorial to make these super inexpensive coasters. Each tile costs about 32 cents. So, if you still have someone on your list, but are running low on cash, then these are the perfect solution!
