Crafted Items for Christmas

Here are the things I was working on for Christmas!

First off I was part of a Secret Doll Swap for my Etsy Team: Etsy Tea Party. Here are a few goodies that I made.

This was something I made for Linds at SickForCute for our Christmas swap. I also made her a little scrap book. Currently uploading the movie for that and it's sllloowwww. I'll post it after it's done.

I got this cute pattern awhile ago from Jenny B Harris website AllSorts. Believe you can't download the pattern anymore. I gave this little cutie to my parents.

I made this little one with fabric I already had. My sister is a big fan of horses and I thought this would be perfect.

Crafty Ladies

The awesome and beautiful Twinkie-Chan is hosting a blog giveaway! Go go go! You have till Monday 12/21 to enter.

OH and the Stitcher Scribbler has some awesome snowman gift tag downloads for FREE. They really are lovely. <3

Christmas Goodies

Since it's Christmas here are some of my favorite movies and book for this time of year. ;D

I love the old time Peanuts so of course Charlie Brown Christmas special is mixed in there. Though the Halloween special is my favorite I still enjoy this one as well.
OH and of course who can forget A Christmas Story and that leg lamp!? I have seen this movie so many times and it never gets old. It still cracks me up even though I pretty much know every line. ;D

Of course How The Grinch Stole Christmas too. I love the book and movie. Another thing that never gets old to me at all.

Christmas Cookies

Once in a blue moon I do get in a baking mood believe it or not. I spent 4+ hours today baking different kinds of cookies. Oh! my graceful self as well did manage to drop a pan of cookies in the oven and they spilled all the way to the bottom. Not much fun and had to stop the baking process to clean it all up.

Baking is always the cheaper Christmas present in my mind. All of these will be going to my work place on Monday.

The cookies here came from the store and walked right into my oven for some cooking. ;D Nothing to exciting but I wanted a variety in my cookie boxes.
These I did make from starch! I got both recipes for the cookies from here:
The Pioneer Woman Website - Love this site. The peppermint cookies I did a little different. Just added the M&Ms on as well. ;D

OH!! I was in Target the other day and saw these little ADULT footie PJs.
The pink bunny PJs remind me of the ones from the movie A Christmas Story.

Also! I love Kawaii Not ! The comic strips are just so funny and cute. It's a comic strip for cute gone bad. ;D

Christmas Time

I'm going to put off what I worked on for Christmas presents to surprise folks but wanted to show my tree. :D

This was my first every Christmas tree in my first home. Which I still live there of course. My parents got this little one for me and I love it. Usually the theme is very sweet so tons of candy items/sweets are hanging on my tree.

Oh! Here are some awesome patterns/tutorials on good Christmas goodies. I think everyone I know enjoys hand-made items over store bought.

These are awesome little Tea bags for the tea lover in your life. Such a sweet little gift. You can find the pattern and tutorial over at Bugs and Fishes Blog.

Pandas are such cute guys and I'm sure any child or adult would love this little guy!! You can find the pattern and tutorial over at MollyChicken's Blog.

I am a big fan of The Black Apple on etsy. Here is a pattern and tutorial on how to make these little cutie dolls. You can find the link at Martha Stewart's website.

This is such a sweet little ornament that would look perfect on anyone's tree. You can find the pattern and tutorial over at So September's Blog.
