The Holiday season is right around the corner, can you believe it? That means that it is time to think of gift giving and decorations for your house. Christmas is one of those holidays that we do take the time to decorate for. We like to make our tree different every year and are now incorporating Liam’s ornaments onto the tree. These DIY clay ornaments are perfect for the kids to join in with crafts this year. It is easy and fun! These would also make great tie – on gifts for your gift giving this Christmas.
