Thursday...which means ALMOST Friday! :)

Keep clicking that water --- we've donated almost 1 month's worth of water already!! Great job!!

Yesterday I confessed that I never knew I was such a wreath lover.  Well, today I'm going to tell you that I never knew pillows would excite me as much as they do.  This candy cane pillow would go perfect next to the peppermint pillow from yesterday.  Minty love.  Ameroonie Designs makes fabulous pillows (you probably saw her bat pillow from Halloween. Swoon!)
I know the little girl's cuteness is hard to ignore but try really hard to look at how cute that shirt is.  The sleeves --- are socks.  Jellybean junkyard has the how to!

Another totally cute kid.  {Doesn't she have her poses down?!?} Head to the Handmade Holiday for a bubble skirt tutorial!  She makes it look so easy!

What is not to love about Posh Pilar's skirt?!  SOOOOO pretty. 

I've seen zipper shoes, headbands, and flowers.  But this is the first tree!  And I heart it.  Simple design. Great texture.  Perfect color.  Swoon worth indeed.  I sew do you put her tree on a bib.  I'd put them on everything! :)


The Life of Riley made this no sew felt dahlia.  Super pretty. 

Peppermint lip balm.  What a super great gift.  This is one of those things that I would love to learn to make but was kind of intimidating to me.  But Katie from Eye Spy DIY did a great job writing the tutorial so I'm off to find a container (smart thinking huh? FIND the container before making...)

I love bling.  {I'm currently feeling incomplete because I had to send my wedding ring to be repaired.  Lack of bling = brief moment of panic when I look the jewelers..whew...not lost...or down the drain...} The Autocrat made these super cute spoons.  I love the packaging too!

Cleverly inspired made this Reason for the Season banner.  So easy to do.  And the possibilities with this are endless!  Great idea!

Crafty Cierra really doesn't need an introduction.  That's one talented lady over there!! I love string trees.  And I love the fact that they are SO easy to do!

Print This!

You can thank the Homemade Diva for this awesomeness.

I have mad love for the long thread.  Mad love.  This sweet holiday label is just that sweet.  Her recipe for peppermint bark is also there!

My Creative Place made this popcorn label.  Hers are for a party.  You could also do neighbor gifts ''popping in to say happy holidays" Cute idea!!

Gourmet Mom on the Go made these mixed up snowmen labels for baggies! {Recipe on her blog}  Perfect for classroom parties!!

Brown paper packages made these adorable snowman soup labels.  How stinking cute is that snowman?  Another great classroom snack!!


Pretty lil' posies made these.  I don't even need to tell you how good they look.  Or how yummy I'm sure they smell.  OR how awesome a dozen of these bad boys would be delivered Christmas morning (with some coffee).  Nope.  Don't even need to tell you.

Maybe a special dog is on your list?  Don't worry Christy from Glitter to Gumdrops has you covered.  Dog Bark (he he get it?  Bark? Dog?)

Talkin' Chow...Playin' House had this gingerbread cottage how to up.  I love the stained glass windows! I had high hopes for a gingerbread mansion for our candy theme....and I haven't even made a shack yet lol.

These are all of my favorite things rolled into one.  Cupcakes. Hot chocolate.  Peppermint.  CUTENESS. Cupcakes Take the Cake featured this babies from Icing Designs.  I just adore them

I am queen of indecisiveness.  So when I saw these chocolate and caramel dipped marshmallows from One Charming Party I said Brilliant!!
