Gettin’ Krafty With It

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Except, I don’t have a Christmas tree yet!  I have pulled out all of the decorations, bought some new ones, came up with a whole new theme and can’t wait to get started…
I wanted to get one right after Thanksgiving but we had birthdays going on as well and it was just too hectic. Then, we were going to get a tree this weekend and one of our children was not at home so we didn’t want to leave her out.  We all go to the Christmas tree farm as a family and pick out the tree and cut it down.  It’s our little tradition.  The kids get candy canes and we listen to Christmas music all the way home with the tree on top of the car. 
So, hopefully, this week we will have our tree!  It is better to wait anyway since we get a live tree and we want it to still be alive on Christmas! 
I am eager to see your Christmas trees though and other holiday (& non holiday) projects! 
Here are a few from last week:

Diana Rambles made this mint dirt pie. Mint and chocolate are so good together and perfect for a holiday treat!

Dry Shampoo recipe (beautytips4her)

Beauty Tips 4 Her shared this recipe for dry shampoo spray.  This will come in so handy in between washings, especially during this busy season! 

Howling Liz embroidered this adorable Russian nesting doll or matryoshka as a gift for a friend.  I know she will be very happy to receive it.

Kaminski’s Creations made this Christmas Card Holder.  What a stylish display!
Paperseedlings demonstrated her technique for faux cloisonné ornaments on Christmas cards.  I can’t wait to try this myself!

Shades of Safhire -Stained Glass Crocheted Scarf
Shades Of Safhire shared this beautiful stained glass style scarf. I really like this pattern.
