Don’t Let Sandy Play the Grinch – Craft New Christmas Ornaments!

Don’t Let Sandy Play the Grinch – Craft New Christmas Ornaments!

The devastation wreaked by Hurricane Superstorm (or whatever they are calling it) Sandy is sobering. But, not only did people lose their furniture, boilers, sheet rock, cars etc., they lost their memories – family photos, keepsakes and Christmas decorations.  While some things just can’t be salvaged or replaced, you can create new heirlooms.  Now we all have our favorite standbys like the tricolor bead candy canes (don’t have any? come on, you know you do!), I wanted something different so I searched my favorite site, Pinterest, for some inspiration and came up with a bunch of beautiful ornaments you can easily make (and they don’t look like something that came out of a Kindergarten classroom either).  Here are a few of my favorites:

These felt stars are easy and adorable to craft (from Purlbee) and are the epitome of the primitive look.  You could easily make them into a string garland  or incorporate them into a primitive theme (along with salt-dough ornaments below) with some burlap garland!

I absolutely adore these wood ornaments with scrapbook paper modged podged on (from Brown Paper Packages)  – another easy project:

These swirl nail polish ornaments (from Beautylish) are gorgeous:

My kids have made salt dough ornaments before and with the stamping here, they make a nice personalized ornament (from Design Editor):

 

It would be a great idea to host an ornament crafting party to make these for friends and neighbors who lost their Christmas Ornaments.  These are all fairly easy to make and you could definitely crank a bunch out over some hot cocoa (maybe with some schnapps). I hope you are as inspired as I am!

Happy crafting!

 

 

         

MIA All Summer and Disaster

MIA All Summer and Disaster

So this is the first time, since May that I actually visited this blog. I can’t say that I have been off on wonderful adventures, sipping cocktails beach side during the summer, etc. Nope. Had a pleasant summer with my kids – stayed local and went to the beach, hung out around the pool and… Continue Reading

Blog Savvy: Are You Thanking Your Commenters?

I wanted to share with you one important tip for increasing your readership – thanking commenters.  Comments are the bread and butter of a blog – evidence that you have created a conversation. If you aren’t commenting on blogs you read, please start doing so.  Without comments, bloggers feel like they are talking to an empty… Continue Reading

Give the Most Precious Gift of All: Your Time

Give the Most Precious Gift of All: Your Time

Our time is truly our most precious commodity.  We are always so busy doing something or going somewhere.  This is the age of multitasking – I used to boast about carrying on more than 5 conversations at once – texting, instant messaging and email. Now, I don’t necessarily think that is quite as impressive as… Continue Reading

A Very Good Friday Indeed

A Very Good Friday Indeed

I should not be here but I am. We experienced a miracle this past Good Friday. Ginger, his friend and I were in a terrible car accident that we should have have been able to walk away from, yet we did.  God was truly with us. April 6th was a beautiful day – we decided… Continue Reading

Tweak Your Pinterest Experience

Those of you who know me are aware of exactly how I feel about the Social Media gurus who recently “discovered” Pinterest.  I have been pinning over a year now and had realized right away what a gem of an application it is. So all the BS they brought to the table about Terms of… Continue Reading
