I put up my Christmas decorations yesterday, and I made a new one:

It's a grapevine wreath with glass ornaments wired to it. I got the lettering and ornaments at Target. You like?

P.S. Stay tuned...I've got a good giveaway in the works!

Win Instantly!

Do you have a baby? or know someone who does? or know someone who might in the near future? or just want to plan ahead for some point when you might have one? Well, if you answered yes to any of those questions, you're in luck! My sister, Nancy, is doing a giveaway of my other sister, Katie's, Puj sling!
Be sure to act now! The giveaway ends Monday, the 24th at 7:00pm.
Katie is also doing a giveaway for $600 worth of Puj merchandise (Just enter your email at the top of the page to sign up). What more could you ask for?
I know, you had no idea how well connected I was, to be related to such people. I won't go on about the rest of my family, as that would take days, but check them out for yourself! A veritable smorgasbord of lovely and talented people. Oh, the pressure of being the youngest child and having to live up to all that!

Is it just me?

Or do you ever wish that you could get away with wearing things like this in your hair?

It's not so much that I'm self-conscious and would feel silly (okay, it's a little bit of that), but when, exactly, does one have occasion to wear feathers in her hair?

Etsy Find

This is for all you mom's out there looking for Christmas gifts. These handmade toys on etsy are adorable! You can buy them individually for $8 or in the set for $35. That's a good price, right? I don't know, I've never bought children's toys. But I thought they were cute.

Brrrr, It's Cold In Here!*

It's about that time of year where I drink hot chocolate about once a day. You think I'm exaggerating, but I had it twice yesterday. Now, we all know that the best hot chocolate to be had is at the gas station. What, you didn't know? Well, it's true. And what makes it so delicious are all those delightfully flavored coffee creamers. You didn't know that part either? Don't worry, my rock-star husband was also not aware. And if you're making your hot chocolate at home, but wishing it was as delicious as the stuff at 7-11, fret no more! You can get the coffee creamers at Wal-Mart (or probably any other mart for that matter). They even have boxes of the little single servings like at the gas station. My favorite flavors are french vanilla and hazelnut. I recommend you use two per mug, but that is of course based on my mugs. You might need more than that if your mugs are bigger than mine. Now go have some! You can thank me later.

*Name that movie reference for extra cool points.

Shamless Sibling Promotion

My incredibly talented, beautiful, nice, funny, sister Nancy is selling some of her famous bags! And if you're lucky, you get a pendant to go with it. Hurry! And if they're all gone by the time you get there, tell her you want one. It makes us crafters feel good to know that people like our stuff. That's why we blog! The green one's my favorite, and you can see more pictures on her blog. Check it out!

A Little Stitch

I made some more embroidered onsie's for another pregnant sister! Becky is a fan of all things beach, so I decided to go with a ocean theme on these. My favorite is the octopus.
