Festive Tin Can Gift – 12 Days of Christmas {Day 10}

Let’s face it – Christmas is an expensive holiday.  It’s hard enough to buy gifts for your immediate family, but when you add on a gifts for the teachers, and a gift for the hostess of the party you’re going to, and a gift for the great aunt, who you only see once a year, it can become outrageously expensive, and your fa la la starts to fade fast when you realize how long your gift-giving list is getting.  Don’t despair – you {Read More}

Wish List for Christmas Chalkboard

Welcome to day 9 of my 12 Days of Christmas event!  Did you hit the stores to find great deals on Black Friday?  I don’t like waking up so early in the morning to stand in the cold, so I never do, but I do need to get busy with my Christmas shopping, because I know the next month will fly by. For the last several weeks, my kids have been mentioning ideas of gifts they’d like for Christmas, and I told {Read More}

Burlap Christmas Banner Printable – 12 Days of Christmas {Day 8}

Before I show you the 8th project for my 12 Days of Christmas, I thought I’d share a little  about my Thanksgiving.  If there’s one thing that could be said about it, it was memorable.  That’s good, right?  Well – I’ll let you decide. As I mentioned before, my husband’s parents came to spend Thanksgiving with us.  As I’ve also mentioned before, I don’t like to cook.  I do it out of necessity, but I’m much more relaxed with a {Read More}

Glittered Letter Apothecary Bottles – 12 Days of Christmas {Day 7}

I know most people love glitter, but I rarely use it, because I end up with glitter in my hair, glitter glued to my table, and somehow even my animals end up sporting glitter, but there’s just something about the holidays that requires a little sparkle that only glitter can give. Today’s Glittered Letter Apothecary Bottle banner is super easy, and requires only a few supplies.

Thankful for You!

My in-laws have arrived, so I’m taking this time to enjoy spending time with my family for Thanksgiving, but I wanted to take a moment to say how thankful I am for all of you.  I appreciate every comment you leave, and I  appreciate those who don’t visit, but don’t comment as well.  It means so much to me that you take time out of your day to see what I’m working on, and for that – thank you all! Wishing {Read More}

a Rustic Christmas Bushel Basket

 Welcome to Day 6 of my 12 Days of Christmas crafting celebration! Wheww… now I know how the elves feel, trying to get so many things made for Christmas!  They are probably smart, and start in January, instead of waiting until November to think, “maybe we should start working on Christmas projects now.”   I think I work better at the last minute than I do starting months in advance, anyway though. Today’s project involves this old bushel basket I got {Read More}

Rustic Sign for Christmas – 12 Days of Christmas {Day 5}

Rustic Sign for Christmas – 12 Days of Christmas {Day 5} The project I had planned for Day 5 of my 12 Days of Christmas was a bust.  It just wasn’t turning out as I’d envisioned it, so I was wracking my brains to come up with another project.  Then I realized I didn’t have a sign planned yet, and I love doing signs for Christmas.  While soaking in the bathtub later (a.k.a. my “office”), I looked up at the rustic {Read More}
