Monday Monday!

I'm back.  A little late - sorry.  How was your Thanksgiving?  And Black Friday.   What did you do?  I honestly didn't go out...I know CRAZY!  {Since my step dad was going to be at Wal Mart anyways I had him look for a few things for me but they were sold out - go figure}.  But honestly -- I'm most excited about Goodwill's half off sale on Friday. 

Can you say GEEEk.  :) But I am.

Anywho Christmas is in full swing Hooray! :) I'm loving it!


Jump on over to I am Momma - Hear Me Roar for this tutorial by Kalleen from At 2nd Street to find out how to make this a-freaking-dorable cardigan from a T-Shirt. 

I love all things hot chocolate.  And I'm loving this hot chocolate shirt that Sew Totally Smitten made her daughter.
Joshua always has holes in his jeans.  I have a whole stack I need to patch up.  Although I think I need to do a star or lightening bolt or pirate skull instead of a heart.  I think I would lose my cool mom status with a heart. lol.  Check out Mending made fun over at Diary of a Quilter

I think hats are cool.  I do.  I look totally geeky in them.  And I am not fond of them on me.  But on other people - esp people under 10 - very cool.  And From An Igloo has a cool pattern you have to check out!

Dittle dattle is a new blog for me (I think number 405? Maybe?) She earned herself a spot on my list with these way cool pillows.  I saw them somewhere...and they are on my recreate list.  She did such an awesome job!!


Alright.  I'm totally envious of anyone who makes these.  Because I don't even know the first thing that comes to tools.  Not at all.  But go get the pattern for those too cute reindeer.  And power tool on woman! P.S. This is from Under My Umbrella  and she posts tons of patterns!

House of Giggles made this mitten advent that I just adore.  It just looks so pretty.

Madigan Made a really cool Ipod case from an old picture frame.  Genius!

Screen Printing 101 from Lil Blue Boo.  Plus she has a totally cool contest going on right now.  I'm working on my entry.  As.We.Speak. :)

Lemon Sugar Scrub.  Sounds yummy huh?  Make it as a gift.  Or for yourself.  Brandy from Gluesticks made these and I think they are great!


Here is some Christmas subway art from A little lovely.
Therapeutic Crafting has this really cool Santa Stamp on her blog.  I wish I could have a giant one...painted {and distressed of course}.  But I'm not that talented so print it off I will!

Brown Paper Packages has put together a Christmas Binder.  Tis the season to be organized...or get your booty kicked.

Crafts & Such now has Christmas Lunch Box Notes! Oh how I love these...keep them coming!!!

Wise Men Seek Him is just one of Craftily Ever After's Christmas printables.  She is fabulous for making these for the seasons!


Soo my son is pretty picky.  He just recently tried ice cream.  And he loved it.  Duh.  But it has to be vanilla.  Not French Vanilla.  Just vanilla.  Plain.  And so we are totally making these snowman sundaes.  I saw them over at Poca Cosas.
Spice mixes make awesome Christmas gifts.  And easy to mass produce!! Lolly Chops has a chilli spice mix that I think I will be trying for sure.

As I said -- I'm a freak for hot chocolate.  And these homemade chocolate dipped marshmallows (with crushed candy canes on top...) are looking fabulous! 

How good does this Turkey Wild Rice soup look?  Yea... I love leftovers.  Head to Sunday Baker for the recipe!

Chocolate Candy Cane by Ready Set Create looks delish.  Yea this will be added to my December holiday cooking list which by the way is now growing as rapidly as my to do list.  Fabulous.
