I had SO much fun speaking about crafting/blogging and the holidays with a group of young moms at church this morning. I was speaking to an audience of over 100 women--some who are crafting experts, and some who have NEVER even seen a craft blog, so I had to keep the ideas general but applicable to everyone. I think it worked and was a nice morning for all!
Next weekend is the weekend I am throwing my autumn bridal shower! I can't wait to share the pictures, ideas and tutorials with you!
For now, here are some fun ideas from the week!
On Etsy, I found these pom poms made from doilies on Myhaleygirl! This actually looks EASIER than the tissue paper poms that are so popular right now. I have been dreading the poofing of the poms for the bridal shower--maybe I'll try these!
Oh, Crafts! came up with this cute stamp idea for packages and for letters. Since Christmas is coming, this would be a fun idea for any Christmas Card envelopes you are sending. Just exchange the pink for gold or Christmas colors . . . If you can't find a tag stamp, just cut a sponge or foam in the shape of a tag!
Somewhat Simple created and shared some free Thanksgiving printables. print, cut and fold in half on a toothpick or lollipop stick in order to make cupcake toppers, or cute decor for each slice of pumpkin pie!
Armelle--cute blog I just found--love it--posted some cute Thanksgiving table decorations for the kiddie table--or the young in heart.
Sweet Pea's Kitchen shared an awesome sweet potato recipe for Thanksgiving. Instead of peeling and casseroling the sweet potatoes, how about just serving them in the skin like a twice baked potato? Fun presentation and easy--win, win!
Catch My Party shared these frree, darling Thanksgiving printables from Love the Day. I love the non-traditional colors!
The Hungry Mouse shared a pumpkin, brown sugar cheesecake in a chocolate, shortbread crust. YUMMMM!
The photo completely sold me on this one, but Flickr had a homemade caramel recipe from Betty Crocker packaged in cute little Christmas jars. My neighbors would be pretty happy to get one of these!
Okay, I am getting hungry (I love yummy holiday recipes). . . and it is dinner time. We are off to PF Chang to use a gift card and enjoy a treat! Have a great weekend!
