Sew This
Aren't these dino hats sweet?  Kara made them for Christmas gifts.  And these look super warm!

This is quite possible the cutest birth announcement I have ever seen.  I'm smitten by it.  OCD: Obsessive Crafting Disorder (Even her name is creative) made it.  And the polka dot dress in the picture matches her gift.  Way cute.

You know you want to head over to Quaint and Quirky to learn how to make this adorable little doll.  Yea.  You know you want to.

I'm loving the fact that kids can make these!  I think Josh will most def. be making some book marks.  And they will probably all be green. :) Speaking of green.  These are from the site Pink and Green Mama.

Here is another kid friendly sewing idea.  Bed Bug Hand warmers.  I think these are adorable.  Se7en has a great blog full of kid friendly ideas.

Craft this
Housewife Eclectic made this super cute melted snowman ornament. 

I'm loving this.  For real.  I wish I had this.  Jane of All Crafts has her how to.

Isn't this pom pom garland pretty?  Moore Minutes made it and I just really want one. 

My son sooo needs this hat. The stingy stitcher did a great job!!

Aren't these cool? Ice wreathes.  And free!  On the V side shows you how to make them.  And she's got some great how to tips!

Print this
Christmas cards for your hubbies!! I found these from the Happy Home Fairy on  Love, Actually.


So this isn't really a printable, but I wasn't sure where to put it.  Urban Comfort has a really cool journal idea.  And it looks so pretty.

It's a Crafty life made this cute printable.  I love the color!

The crafting chicks have this cute reindeer noses printable.  Just add red and green m'&'m's. 

The crafting chicks also have this Santa key and poem for you too!  We need one since we are without a chimney.

Eat this
Not so much a recipe but Iron Violet Design made cute tags that said Thought we'd be an angel and give you a little more dough.  Easy neighbor gift!

Aren't these hot chocolate on a sticks adorable?  You can find out how to make them on Make & Takes!

Vanilla sugar?  I had never heard of it.  But I LOVE vanilla.  {I totally said that like Buddy the elf would say I LOVE Christmas!} Clean Mama tells you how to make it!  Mmmm....I'm thinking vanilla sugar to use making our cinnamon buns.  YUM.

I present to you Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies.  Yea. You heard me.  Three Baking Sheets to the Wind is an AWESOME blog for really cool treats. 

Picky Palate has these super cute little kiss pies.  They're cute.  Way cute.  And super easy.

  4. I like the new blog look and understand you updated the the button to match. To be honest I LOVED the old button, Just my style. Maybe because my button is an etch-a-sketch. :)
