Right Now Monday – Ringing in the Season – Some Ideas from the Archives

Hello all .  . . Right Now, on this Monday . . . I am thinking about the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday and Christmas.  I’m getting excited about some familiar traditions and new ones.

I hope that you all enjoyed the 2014 annual Handmade Holiday Blog Hop.  What inspiration!  With that in mind . . . Thanksgiving is on the horizon and Christmas not too far off.

Today I thought I’d share a few projects from the archives that might inspire you as you craft Christmas.

Here’s s Joy wall hanging tutorial decor to ‘Deck Your Halls’ . . .


This can be a gift for your Shabby Chic friend.  An angel wall necklace or wall hanging (your preference depending on size) that is sure to remind them of the hope of the season.  A video how too as well.




Need quick nice mixed media gift tags?  Here’s a tutorial that will help you.


And recently on the Handmade Holidays Blog Hop . . . that gift for the Artistic friend in your life.  Here’s the specifics and a tutorial on that which can be found here.

Here’s an Ice Resin pendant that you can gift to yourself or another.


And here are some simple card ideas using lots of punches you may already have on hand.
