Tuesday's Features

Tomorrow I have something really, really really special to share -- so please make sure you come back!  :)

Sew this:
Download Lowercase Pattern for Rag Quilt Letters Now
Happy Together has the ABC's for you to print off for rag quilts!  I love the look of the letters - they look so cuddly!

I think just about everyone needs one of these right now ( I just saw that even Orlando would get down to 28 tonight!! Geez!!)  Amy from the Idea Room has a tutorial to keep your hands warm while you scrape your car.

Obsessively Stitching has made an ABC book (I'm on a kick today with the alphabet).  Here is the first part to her adorable book!

I know...my tree is still up (on my to do list today actually.  It's driving me crazy to have Christmas stuff up while working on VALENTINE'S DAY. ) My husband thinks I'm crazy too.  But Sew 4 Home has this super cute blanket that I'm really wanting on my couch.

And speaking of way cute blankets....how awesome is this quilt?  Seriously, you have to go check it out.  The details are so stinking adorable.  {Dirt Cheap Decor!  has some serious talent!}

Craft This:
This is on my to do list.  I REALLY want to have a gratitude scrapbook and I'm working on another special set of books I'll have to share when I finish.  This is from I love it all.  And I really do love it all.

Kids snowed in?  Make some slime!  Scott School has the recipe (found via Ucreate w/ Kids)

Alright so you do have to sew.  A button.  You can do that right?  Visit The Cottage Home for this cozy tutorial. 

Paisley Passions made a growth chart! I love it!!  I totally lied on Joshua's growth chart a few weeks ago.  He ate (well. I threatened no more DS for the night..) 3 bites of veggies (which at our house is a HUGE deal).  I told him that they would make him grow.  So before he went to bed, we measured him.  Next morning, he was so excited to see if he grew.  So you know I had to add a few inches to him.  Too bad it only worked that one time....I thought I was onto something.  {He told me the next night I told him to eat his veggies that he doesn't want to get too tall....}

I know I know Christmas is over.  {See previous comment about starting Valentine's Day stuff} But THIS.  THIS is on my (really large) next year list.  How cute is this?  Visions of Sugar Plums has a few tips for you!

Print this:

Christmas Thank You
A lemon Squeezy Home has this super cute thank you card to download.

Lizard and Ladybug made this thank you for your kids.  I like the fact that there is plenty of room for drawings and those big letters that beginning writers make. 

New Year's Resolutions
I need a resolution tracker!  I love this idea.  I like calling them goals rather than resolutions. :) {From Organized Christmas}

It is what it is has the 2011 printable for your ever so wonderful BYO_ (B/W/C - beer, wine, champagne).  Or slip them over the tops of 2 liters!

Follow Agape Love's blog and she will email you this super cool subway art! 

Eat this:
Alisa Burke has these super cool fortune cookies on her blog! {Found via Be Different...Act Normal}

I thought these were adorable.  From Glitter to Gumdrops made them!

Cakes, Kids, Etc has this Snickerdoodle Cupcake recipe on her blog.  Oh the cinnamon-y sugar-y  goodness -- YUM.

dozen grapes at midnight
I thought this just looked pretty.  But apparently your supposed to eat a dozen grapes quickly (no slow pokes) at midnight. Head to Ucreate Foods to learn more!
