Give a gift - altered frappuccino bottles

The little girls upstairs are from Japan.  They are learning English in school here.  Their mother is learning Italian and speaks little to no English.  The husband who works with my husband speaks Japanese and English but travels.  You see the dilemma.  I started giving the girls little gifts on holidays they would celebrate but are not celebrated in Italy.  Like Halloween.  We have a sweet friendship where the girls get to practice their English and their mom gets a little break.  Here is a picture of them at Halloween:

So these are my gifts to them at Christmas.  And my entry into the Cricut Circle Blog challenge Black Friday.  Use black and at least two cricut cuts.  I have snowflakes, circles, squares and rectangles from Joys of the Season and George.  I love George, you can do anything with George!  Cricut Papers and some stickles.

Hi! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I needed to
ask. Does running a well-established blog such as yours require a
large amount of work? I'm brand new to running a blog however I do write in my diary everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share
my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any
ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.

Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the
images aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I think its
a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.
