Like many, many people I am heavy hearted. I am so sorry for the senseless loss in Newtown, CT. Sometimes there are no words... but I wanted to acknowledge the tragic loss and to say you are in our thoughts and prayers Newtown.
As usual, Jacinda has a really cute tutorial today!
This is a great gift within a gift idea for Christmas. For all those Christmas party hostess gifts, you can give wine in a festive fabric gift bag. These don't take any time at all to make, and of course you can make them all year in any fabric!
I've seen Olive Garden bread stick copycat recipes all over the place. While I will concur they are very yummy, I would rather have one of my Mom's bread sticks any day. And, unlike Olive Garden's, mom's breadsticks are better as leftovers.
Wooohoo it's December! It's CHRISTMASTIME! To bring in the festive season, Jacinda will be sharing her Embroidered Christmas Pillow Sham Tutorial with you today. It's a great beginner project and perfect to spruce up your home for the holidays.
I've seen several great "Advent Calendar's" recently. Most of these calendar's had nothing to do with Jesus or Christianity. In very simple terms, I understand Advent to be a time of preparing our hearts to celebrate Jesus' birth. As a Christian, I am all for this. (If you are interested read more about Advent here). The tutorial I am going to show you is more of a countdown to Christmas! We celebrate the birth of Jesus during this time and we also have lots of fun watching, Christmas movies, singing Christmas songs, making cookies, etc...
