Hey, everyone!

In keeping with the spirit of homemade decorations and gifts this year, I wanted to share with you today’s craft that we will be working on with our Little Monkey… pipe cleaner snowflakes. We have a ton of pipe cleaners in our craft area and they are in all sorts of colors, so this is just what the MomMom ordered… FREE! 😉

String them to hang around the house or on your tree! This year, we hung ornaments in the windows, so I’m excited to make these and add them to the display…

Click HERE for the tutorial… hope you and your family have a fun time making this inexpensive craft! Thank you to It’s Written on the Wall for posting this craft.

Hey, everyone!

Been busy trying to get our home better organized (it’s an endless battle! Do you feel the same way??!)… now the holidays are here and I have made it my mission to celebrate this Christmas season in a very old-fashioned way. That’s right… homemade gifts, homemade decorations, and a Charlie Brown Christmas tree that I cut down in the woods out back! In fact, the actual Charlie Brown Christmas tree looks a lot better than ours… ours is a tree branch!!! 😉 My plan is to make it a new family tradition to have a Blessing Tree in our home every year… Im cutting out paper pieces to tie to this branch and display in our home. On each paper will be a blessing in our lives that we are grateful for. This tree will be a reminder to us that we have been called to be content in whatever situation God has us in and that we need to count our blessings and be thankful 🙂

Once I have finished everything, I will be post some pictures up… meanwhile, I found this wonderful Mason jar craft for something to display around the house… (Thank you to The Better Mom for posting this!) I love Mason jar crafts and this one has a Christmas theme to it…
