Sweet Little Fairy

Another little miss had her birthday last week.  This young lady loves fairies, so when I saw a tutorial for fairy bendy dolls, I knew what to do! Isn’t she cute? The birthday girl aslo enjoys making things, so I also included all the materials so that she can make a family of fairies on…

Sock Snowmen

Is anyone else out there just a little addicted to Pinterest?  I have only been on the site for the last two weeks, but have found it to be an amazing resource for creative ideas, as well as a way to finally get my overloaded “Favourites” file under control!   And for someone who likes to…

Make Your Own Evergreen Christmas Wreath

Make Your Own Evergreen Christmas Wreath

Last year I shared with you how my mother-in-law taught me how to make an evergreen wreath.  This year we gathered with the whole family (my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, too!) to make them again.  We started our outing at our land to gather the evergreen boughs, and after a long (and somewhat wet!) hike we…

Menu Planner Tutorial

I would be lost without a menu plan.  I have become so used to making one that the few times I have gone to the grocery store without one I wandered around having no idea what to buy!    So every week I plan out the meals we will eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner, make a…

Thank You Cards

My mother taught me how to write thank you notes when I was very young, in response to far-away relatives who sent me gifts at Christmas.   It has become such a habit that  the Christmas season is just not complete until the notes are done.  In keeping with my decision to make all of my own cards, I…
