16th December – a handmade Christmas

As I have just finished making some teacher gifts this morning, I thought I would share a few Christmas craft ideas

Chocolate -Chip and Pecan Cookies in a Jar

Using digi-scrapped the gift tags (available to download HERE for today only) and typing out the instructions, I added a ribbon and a wooden spoon.

Some of the kids latest crafts from school


A “readers digest” tree from last year (instructions HERE)

Some trees from 2 years ago – can you spot which ones my kids made?

So what is your fave craft at Christmas? Be sure to let me know.

Quick reminder – do you have a nativity set? Please come back on 21 December to join in the carnival – there will be prizes!

  2. Love your crafts! I have been remarkably non-crafty for the Holidays this year but I have baked about 12 dozen cookies. Normally, I like making ornaments for the tree since our tree is such a mish-mash of stuff.

  3. BOTH your posts were wonderful – I snuck here while I was supposed to be studying at school (well this BIG kid could not concentrate as its our school luncheon and I’m too excited) I’m glad I sneaked here – your ideas and crafts are fab – I can see myself “borrowing” a few ideas. I love how you mix your children’s crafts in with your new items. I also think the idea of the night at your church – well NEXT year I will start organizing well ahead. Thank you for allowing us to share.

    Love, Barb
