12 Days Of Christmas 2019 – Make Your Own Christmas Card Hanger

We have Santa and snowman themed pegs for our cards; as we don’t have much space for putting cards up. Before that we have used the age old classic string across the wall! If you want to get creative and make your own Christmas card hanger; I thought I’d share how super simple it is!

We are lucky enough to get quite a few cards at Christmas time. I usually participate in at least one card swap; as well as sending to a few online friends. Sometimes I then offer to send a handmade card or two online if I have any left; as I make them all in one go, and sometimes end up with extras! So keep an eye on Twitter!

12 Days of Christmas 2019 – 6 – Christmas Window Vinyls With My Cricut Maker

It’s quite nice at Christmas in our area, almost all of the houses put up lights, and it’s something quite special to come home to after work at this time of year.

Because of where our house is, it’s one of those that everyone walks past, so I like to put some sort of window vinyls or stickers up every year.

This year, I thought I’d use my Cricut Maker to see if I could create my own!

So, apparently I have something of an addiction! I made a bauble wreath a couple of years ago, which you can find in last years Blogmas posts…

The first wreath lives in the hallway, which is decorated in blue white and silver. Our living room however is all traditional green red and gold! And so, I decided to make a second wreath for in there too!

12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Sock Snowmen – Tutorial

This year I was looking for some fun festive craft projects, and today I thought I’d share a tutorial for these cute sock snowmen!

Christmas 7

I’ve seen a few sock snowman projects over the last couple of years, and really wanted to make them, but never got around to it. Part of it was the thought that these things aren’t as easy as they look! I’m sure we’ve all been there, right?

These are EASY! I made these two in one evening. They’re incredibly cute, and extremely versatile, I’m sure you can find many alternatives with a simple Google search, but I stuck with the traditional snowman.
