Let's go look at the Ornaments!
One of the nice things about going on a Sleigh Ride, is that I get to find all kinds of creative people with really awesome blogs. The most recent one I found was The Cheese Thief! I just love her creativity! Check out these altered ornaments!!
The Cheese Thief...and not just these posts (both with full tutorials), but there's even more creativity you won't want to miss!
This next one would be especially great for a kids project because it mostly requires cutting, although Mom would have to help with stitching. I just fell in love with the beautiful colors!
Julia Crossland. Wouldn't these also work great as a Christmas-y Crib Mobile?
While we're on the subject of trees....
Today's Fabulous Finds has some cute Trees that would look great on a mantel or on a table. There's a ruffle one, a fur one, and even one that looks like fluffy marshmallows. Check out her blog link for the tutorials!
Ok, we're just turning down Elf Lane....should be something interesting here...
OH LOOK! Oh my goodness, how cute are these?
Maya Made. Too, too cute Maya!!
Last year I made some little Elf Boots with my napkins for Christmas Dinner. They added such a festive touch to the table. Check out the link for the instructions:
Elf Boot Napkins
OR, if you want something a little fancier, check out these silverware holders!
There are so, so many creative people out there! I wish I had more time to make them all!!
Since we're looking at place settings, I guess I'll squeeze this next one in as well...
Crafts By Amanda! Oh so imaginative!!
It looks like we`ve arrive at Recycle Alley....not sure there will be too much here. But....wait...what?
Where on earth did all those Penguins come from?
Wouldn't these be a great little project with your kids on that long break? I think they're adorable!!
Can you guess what they're made of? Do you want to make your own? Check these chubby little waddlers out at Craftberry Bush for the complete instructions.
The older I get, the more the days get away on me. That's why an Advent Calendar is a nice thing to have! Here's one that I thought was really creative, easy to make and Christmas-y!
Alderberry Hill. The full tutorial is on her site!
Well, we're just about back home! Just a few more steps and jingles..and...
What's that I smell?
Oh my goodness...this reminds me of home! Chef Heidi Fink has been mixing up an old German tradition from her childhood (that I also remember from my Dutch background). She's improved on an old tested family recipe and made it better! This is now their new family recipe! That's right, check out this Christmas Stollen! Yummm! I know what Stollen usually tastes like, and it's like a little angel on my tongue.
My parents still bring me one every year, but I'm seriously considering making my own this year...and this is the recipe I'm going to use if I do!
Check out Chef Heidi's blog, Lip Smacking, and this recipe tutorial with pictures and all! Thank you Heidi for sharing with us!
Comin' in for some Candy Cane Punch? I'll put an extra cane in yours! :)
Thanks for going on a Sleigh Ride with me. Truly hope you enjoyed yourself!
