A couple of Christmas goodies

Well as Christmas is RAPIDLY approaching, I have been busy trying to finish up my shopping (only those last super hard people to shop for are left) and I have been making a few gifts as well. This is where teaching myself how to knit has come in rather handy ;)

I realized that I never posted my full project for the recent Bad Girls Christmas Workshop. I made a Holiday Recipe box. If you want to recreate this yourself, the full instructions are still up in the Bad Girls forum. You do have to be registered at the site to be able to view, but signing up is simple and fast.

I love the idea of recipe boxes. I have one that is stuffed full right now and I thought having a pretty decorative box to store favorite holiday cookies, candies and over all yummy goodness would be not only useful but decorative as well.

Paper Trunk's newsletter is up and running! The theme:homemade gifts. I made this little birdhouse ornament.

I bought this cute little bird house at Michael's for only 50 cents people! Go scour your local craft store for super cute ornaments. This whole project cost about a dollar and took about 15 minutes to make.

Tomorrow the December Bad Girls kit goes live so make sure to check back here or at the site to see what all Wendy has up her sleeve.

Til then,

Have a Happy is Wednesday right?!?!
