were made for a bake sale at the Santa's Breakfast I helped out at this weekend.
I set up crafts for the 150 some odd kids there and it was a super fun and busy 3 hours.
It put me into the spirit.
Then I was completely spoiled with a generous gift by my good friend and neighbour.
I was over the moon that she not only thought about me but went straight for my heart strings and got something from Smoking Lily.
A tea towel with Cougar Annie on it.
But I could not bring myself to use it as a tea towel so J suggested I make it onto a skirt...smarty pants.
Now I'm stylin'.
At the Freakin Coffee Shops' Christmas party last night, a few friends and I had a blast, eating, socializing and partaking in the annual gift swap.
I was called near the end and had my sights set on a book about Mouth Sounds...yes.... and I was stoked till it was stolen and I ended up with a 5 gallon jar of dill pickles.
J was happy about the pickles and I...well I am actually jumpin about the glass jar it came in.
There is always a silver lining.
But what am I going to do with all those pickles????
I brought my owl napkin holder that had become a point of contention with my hubby and kids, but I saw it went to a good home.
M brought an old toaster, I had so much fun wrapping it for her.
Can you tell what it is?
The guys who got it said he is never going to unwrap it....thank goodness my 45 minutes wasn't wasted.
We crafted these egg carton beauties, spotted on Crafty Crow, for a quick weekend craft session.
I showed you the scarves I made the other day, but I had to wrap one as a gift and thought that this bag was delightful to package it up.
The Scandinavian Stitches book I bought has given me so many quick sewing project to do, like this bag.
