Christmas Crafts and more!

***Update: By request:
Chocolate Sour Cream Fudge Recipe HERE

Stocking Ideas HERE and HERE and I will try to get a picture of my favorite one...***

Ok.. so I keep finding GREAT crafts and recipes to do and make.... I keep telling myself "I need to do this myself and then blog about it..." Well.. I have been busy trying to get over being sick and doing other misc. doctoring so links and pictures of other people's creations will have to do :)

Gumdrop Trees!

So cute! HERE is how to do it!

HERE is another cute inexpensive gift idea:

The frame only costs $1!! What a great idea.

Is it TOO cold outside? Don't feel like putting 10 layers of clothes on your kids?
But still want to let them play in the snow?

Grab a towel (or two), some bowls, spoons, cookie sheets and whatever else you want....

We did this when my little girl was just 1 and it was fabulous! I didn't have to worry about her getting sick and cold and it was a LOT easier than putting a million layers on her.

Thanks for the fun ideas. I've printed instructions to prepare for the couple of weeks kids are off. Should be fun!


Wow! These look awesome! I will definitely have to try some, thanks so much for the ideas and links! :)


Hey, in all your blog surfing do you ever come across cute Christmas stockings? I still need to make some but haven't found a model that I love. Can the savvy mom check on that.!? Love ya!!

What cute ideas - thanks! (By the way, I noticed today that I've been bumped from my contributing status - must not have been too helpful - sorry.) And, do you know a good recipe for chocolate sour cream fudge? I had some once, and of course the cook refused to share the recipe, but it still sounds yummy at Christmas.


I love that scarf! Thanks for the ideas!


So many fun things to try! Thank you :)
