The Holidays

Dec. 14th,


Cool I just found these cute tissue holders (click for pattern) that I think I will put in the totes! - Easy Peasy...





Ooow, how about a patchwork tote? (another free pattern) This one is great for Easter Egg hunting.

Teacher/ Neighbor gifts... !!!

Finally getting to Christmas Presents. I broke down on picked up a tote pattern. I made it on my own and was close to the pattern but I forgot a couple things and now that I have the pattern - these totes can be put together pretty quick! They great for Teacher & Neighbor gifts. I'll be putting stickers and pencils - first grader stuff In Mrs. E's tote and probably some baked good in the neighbor ladies' bags.

The peppermint striped was my first and completed mostly without a pattern. The apple tote has a much better shape!

For now I'm research crocheting & knitting tutorials and patterns here are a couple great cites:

Abbreviation Guide for crochetting
Knitting How to Videos
Skull Cap Pattern
(Did I mention - FREE)
Projects on Joann's (Free, Free, Free)








My hubby's Christmas gift... ------------------------------->

I think I'll make matching apron's for the boys - would a tween boy like one too? Hmmm...I think he might - since he'll just be wearing at home...

December 2nd

Are YOU ready for the holidays...as always I'm a last minute shopper. This year I'm trying to be a home made gift giver - we'll see how that goes. I have a couple projects - 3 or 4 - that I need ready by the weekend and the thought is overwhelming...



I need to start on Christmas gifts in July....I'm currently following the Thrifty Under 50 Blog hoping for some great, cheap, simple yet classy gifts that I can whip up for the holidays - check out the blog if your in the mood for a change or need an extra break this year...
I'm finishing up the Christmas sets and had a gal ask to colloborate on sets - she sells to boutiques - haven't decided about going that route right now. Thats about all for tonight. :<) Happy Holidays... Here is Alexander's Thanksgiving shirt...
