Small gifts everyone wants

Potty Training

Maybe not sewn on but ironed on, absolutely!

Less holiday more Fun

I LOVE the chairs, tea party, bridal shower, kids party...

Cards to Gingerbread Houses

These are your kids thumbprints... cute, easy, so many applications.

This gingerbread house is made of felt... I mean, who really eats the gingerbread houses? It's just about the decorating, so put a bowl of m&M's out and eat some candy and decorate and re-decorate a felt gingerbread house.

Bag Tags

How cute are these... although notice that this person has their last name on their bag anyway... I'm not sure if your name is already on your bag if you need a tag... but these ARE cute!

Made with dad's shirts and another blanket sewn inside instead of batting to make it heavy duty and good for an actual cold night.

Halloween Crafts

Blue, Purple or Black Yarn
Black Pipe Cleaners
Wiggly Eyes


1. Wrap yarn around extended hand, about 50 times or until yarn wrapping is thick around hand.
2. Introduce 3 pipe cleaners (about 4" long each) through yarn wrapping, letting them stick out each side.
3. Use a long piece of yarn (about 5" long) to tie yarn wrapping at the center, together with pipe cleaners. Have someone help you tie wrapping and cleaners tightly so the cleaners won't come out or move.
4. Take out your hand and cut the ends of the wrapping and mess up yarn ends to make it look like a pompom. Bend pipe cleaners down to make the spider's legs.
5. Glue the wiggly eyes to the front of the spider... that's it!
