Five On Friday


Frilly and fabulous, Oh Christmas Tree - Ruffled was made by Mel for her festive mantel. Go check out her how to for this frosty tree @ Bliss Boom {blog}. There's so much more to see!


Here's a project all will enjoy making, especially the kids, that will be treasured through the years, especially by the moms and grandmas. I'm lovin' Lucy @ craftberry bush and her tutorial for Gingerbread Decorations that can be saved and used year after year. I'm all about gingerbread boys anyway, add in some hearts and they will be merry and bright anywhere you place or hang them...and I'm going to tie some on my packages!


Saving herself over $150.00, savvy Sarah @ Welcome To The Good Life used two white tops she had hanging in her closet, plus some cute lace ribbon to create this adorable knock-off! At a time of the year where we are stretching our dollars and creating gifts for others, check out your closet too. Maybe you can make her romantic Anthropologie Lace Chemise DIY.


Beary pink bow and oh so soft, who else will petition Lisa S. @ Spare Time Sanity to share her pattern for this cute, minkie, Teddy Bear? Please leave her a comment so we can all make a new snugly friend that would be a perfect Christmas gift for grands or grandmas!


Here's a shout-out for Amy @ American Quilting. She's created several beautiful quilts and is hosting a silent auction, Cancer Fundraiser Quilts. Through November 27th, you can call American Quilting in Orem, Utah, (1.801.802.7841) and place a bid. Just think, you can check a gift (for your favorite quilt lover) off your Christmas list, and help cure cancer all at the same time. Thanks for all your hard work, Amy. For the rest of us, we have just two days left to help Amy give her gift of love!

Have an inspired weekend all!
