DIY Melted Snowman Ornament Tutorial from Eyeballs by Day Crafts at Night here. This is created using salt, peppercorns and polymer clay. *Tip: add a mini scarf, top hat, and you can create the “carrot nose” using orange paper rolled up and coated with glue. This would be a really good fund raising project because you could make them en masse. First seen at Dollar Store Crafts here.
Truebluemeandyou: Posted on my Holiday Blog. “Mommy, what is that?” “A dead snowman.”
DIY Snowflake Scarf Free Pattern from The Purl Bee here. This scarf is knitted on size 15 needles so it will go really quickly. For knitting 101 and resources of where to find good knitting tutorials go to my post from inspiration & realisation here. I also want to knit this honeycomb scarf here. Any suggestions for cheaper wool than what is mentioned for this tutorial ( $19.50 per skein, 4 skeins needed of Super Soft Merino)?
I don’t knit but I know a lot of my followers do, so here’s a free pattern for a pretty scarf.

DIY J.Crew French Hen Sweater Tutorial from Kittenhood here. Left Photo: $95 J.Crew French Hen Sweater here, Right Photo: DIY from Kittenhood. I would use some other type of fabric and maybe a fusible iron-on interfacing on the back of my applique if I made this - just my sewing preference. If one of my sewing/fashion blogging friends reads this, what fabric would you use other than felt to make this applique on a fine gauge sweater? *For more knockoffs go here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/knockoff
DIY Halloween Bloody Bandaid Party Food from Making Memories… Graham crackers and frosting.
I love big dogs who show affection by leaning on your leg until your knee buckles
Just had a very weird phone conversation with a very disappointed man who called from House of Bread (??? we don’t even have those here), obviously...
You know, I’m starting to realize that technology has improved my relationship with my mom because I no longer have to have any actual conversations...
