Hello!  I have just a couple spots left for free advertising!  Let me know if you are interested!

I for one, would be pumped if someone got me these for Christmas.  But after looking at A Pretty Cool Life's blog - I'm going to make some myself.  So simple.  BUT I have a few more gifts to finish, so these are going to have to wait til next week. {Can you believe it, Christmas is this WEEK!!!!} But if you need a last minute gift -- these are it! :)


Lizzy House has a free housewear quilt pattern available on her site. I love her fabric.  I bought a bunch of it to make napkins {if you look closely the fabrics all have dinner plates, spoons, forks and knives on them}  Very cool.

Perched On a Whim has a tutorial for turning a sweater into a bag.  It's so cozy!

How about this I love the 80's Ipod cover?  :)  It's from Crafting with cat hair.

Grace Violet made this super cute football taggie.  A perfect last minute gift for that little man!!!

Craft this
I'm sure you have all seen this but I just adore them.  And I want one!  C.R.A.F.T made them out of 5 large pots!! When I see a pot I think flowers.  Never in my dreams would I have thought to build a toy soldier!!

In a row
How perfectly whimsy are these?  Oh So Happy Together made them and I'm in love!

CC10 pompom ornament
I think I'm into pom poms.  So if you need a pom pom how to go visit The Crafty Crow

 I thought that this was a cute gift a child could make.  A painted votive candle holder.  Muffin Tin Mom has lots of great ideas!

 Chocolate body scrub.  Doesn't that sound heavenly?  You may need a chocolate bar waiting for you to get out of the bath.  Sweet Tidings has the recipe on her site.  You better believe I have it in the kitchen waiting on me!

She's {Kinda} Crafty has these cool peppermint hot cocoa tags on her blog.  Perfect gift if you ask me.  I love peppermint + hot cocoa.

Here's another gift in a jar.  Smore in a jar.  Uhh I'm in *love*.  Crafts ~N~ Things has all you need!

I love the colors!  I love the quote.  I love that it is free!  I just love it.  And it's from I love it all with Monika Wright.

I think these gift bags are sweet.  It is What it is has done a great job with her blog!  Most def. go check her out!

 Do you have peekers at your house?  If so, you need some of Toad's Treasure's gift tags!

Aren't these turtles cute?  Three Baking Sheets To the Wind made these pretzel turtles.

Santa Belly cookies
Cheryl from Tidy Mom made these super cute sugar cookies.  I adore them.

Caramel Apple Pie just sounds too good not to sare.  Crafty mama has the yummy recipe.

I saw this picture and squeeled.  Yum-o.  AND I have a bundt pan.  I just got it.  Which means -- I could make this Peppermint Poundcake from Nancy Creative! WOO WOO!

Cat on a Limb made this apple cinnamon toast.  Which I think is a great way to start your day.
