Fabric Christmas TreesHow about these little guys to brighten your Christmas?  I love them!  I found them over at The Small Object.  She gives step by step instructions, with pictures, as to how to make them.

I have some gorgeous shades of green material that I think would turn out nicely for these trees.  I’m one of those people that wants to see the proper colors for their creations! lol!  Don’t get me wrong, I think these trees are great!  But there’s something in me that wants to see green trees at my house! lol!

I like the one in the middle with the red and green the best.  Enjoy!

Homemade Gift Bags

Gift bagIt seems like everyone uses gift bags these days instead of wrapping paper. We still us wrapping paper for our kid’s gifts, but I do tend to buy gift bags for everyone else… it just seems easier!

But this year, I’m going to try something different… I found a box full of large manila envelopes in my closet and I knew there had to be some way to make these into gift bags. I did some searching and ta da!!! I found it over at Pages of the Heart! She lists the directions and pictures on how to take a plain manila envelope and turn it into a gift bag! How cool is that?

I think this is one thing the girls and I will be working on this weekend… buy some red paint, use some of the stickers I have from scrapbooking and I’m sure we can come up with some very unique and creative gift bags! This picture looks like they were made for Valentine’s Day but they could be made for any holiday or celebration!

Give it a try and let me know how yours turns out!

I’m still on the lookout for more unique craft ideas for Christmas.  I found a great site that lists over 40 different craft ideas that are all pretty easy to make!  Christmas Time Together at Imagitek has everything from place mats to ornaments, to snowmen and wreaths!  I can’t even begin to pick my favorite!

Stop on over and check out their site, and while you’re there, try a few of their jigsaw puzzles that you can put together online!  Some of them are definitely much harder than others! lol!

Don’t forget Fido… or his owner!

Pet StockingI have a friend who has become very dear to me in the past year, so this year, I want to give her a special Christmas gift.  I’ve been racking my brain to figure out just what to give her, so I started thinking about what is most precious to her… and immediately I realized it was her dog, Kayla!  So, how do I incorporate a gift for her with her dog?

I found the answer! lol!   Blooming Cookies carries a large selection of gift ideas that include cookie bouquets for pretty much every occasion you could think of!  This Holiday Stocking is for both the pet and the owner.  It comes with cookies for the owner as well as yogurt dipped dog treats for your dog!  How adorable is that?

They also have adorable gifts for new parents, get well gifts and birthday gifts! They can all be shipped wherever you’d like, whether it’s directly to the recipient or to you so that you can deliver it in person.

Personally, I love the pet gift baskets! They have an adorable Cat’s Meow Treats and Toys gift that includes two hand pained ceramic bowls in a wrought iron feeding stand shaped like a cat with treats for both the owner and the cat!  I love it!  I could think of a few cat owners who would just be thrilled with this as a gift!

If you have someone who is hard to buy for and has everything, check out Blooming Cookies.  I’m sure you’ll find a unique gift idea that will thrill them!
