It’s Christmas time, and oh how I  love the holiday season. I want to share with you this inexpensive, wonderful gift idea. Last year I gave these out to my neighbors, doctor, etc., and it was such a hit with everyone, I wanted to share it with you, so you can bring smiles to others hearts.

Do you have neighbors and people you want to remember and make their day special?  I truly had so many positive feed backs…they absolutely loved it!

What is it??? Stove top Potpourri.  Simmering potpourri is a lovely way to make your home smell warm and inviting, especially during the holiday season when you use fragrant spices like cinnamon and cloves. As the water evaporates, they just add more.

Butterfly Mobile

I saw this post a few days ago from my friend over at kelleysdiy.com and I just couldn’t stop thinking about how cute this project was, so I decided to share it. This can be made up in any colors of your choice to match your decor, and the butterflies switched out for little animals or birds. The perfect craft to do together with a child.

Remember the Beautiful Baby Shower Mobile I showed you the other day? Well, after a friend saw it, she wanted me to help her create a pretty mobile for her room.
I wrote this last summer….reposting for a friend.
My young friend has been spending a lot of time with me during her summer break making crafts. She loves crafting as much as I, well almost. We picked out bright papers at Joann’s to go with her bedroom colors. She saw the mobile I made from Baby Shower papers and fell in love with my idea.
