creative christmas

all the beautiful wreaths by this flickr member inspired me to buy yarn for the first time. wow what amazing wreaths she has made. ( i have a serious itch to learn to crochet or knit lately) so with a styrofoam wreath form and some goodies from home i made this, and i adore it!

i used a peice of white felt (i really wanted red but had used it to make my dog a cape for halloween!) and some corsage pins and voila! instant embellishment!
i also finally got to Target's dollar bins early enough this season to pick some adorable socks for joey's advent calendar. i numbered them with some old Making Memories stickers.

here is 2008 advent when i couldn't find socks. it worked just as well, and its so fun for joey! (same dark green ribbon used to hang both, i don't think i'll ever use up that spool!)

reason to revel wednesday candy cane stripes

one of my favorite things about this time of year is the availability of Bob’s Sweet Stripes.
i love, love, love them! they have inspired this week’s reason to revel with their red and white Christmas-y striped goodness.

1. candy cane shot glass, these were given as a secret santa/white elephant gift at a recent party with peppermint schnapps. yummy

4. holiday cupcakes, these are the cutest things ever!
