Crochet Gingerbread Men Scarf

December 18, 2018 0 Comments
Welcome to the December Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month, I decided to share my Crochet Gingerbread Men Scarf. Christmas is my favorite time of year, and I love making handmade Christmas crafts. And I was recently inspired to create a Gingerbread Man Scarf. To create these gingerbread men, I used a free crochet pattern by Repeat Crafter Me.

Crochet Gingerbread Stockings

December 14, 2018 4 Comments
As a fan of the Seahawks, I've decided to have a Seahawks themed Christmas. I've decorated our Christmas tree with blue and green ornaments. I have Seahawks inspired Christmas wreaths. And I've crocheted a Seahawks inspired Christmas Tree Skirt and Christmas Stockings. To create our stockings, I used Red Heart's FREE pattern for Gingerbread Stockings. The yarns I used for these stockings are Red Heart Super Saver in Blue Suede, Glowworm, Grey Heather, and Red Heart Classic in Silver. For the gingerbread men/women, I used Red Heart Soft in Toast.

Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies for Santa

December 12, 2018 6 Comments
My kiddos love when I bake cookies for them, and they enjoy them even more when I allow them to help Mommy (that's me!) bake the cookies. And since it's the holiday season, we've been trying new cookie recipes.  I found the yummy recipe for these Double Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies (Santa's Cookies) on the Creme De La Crumb blog.  The kiddos helped me make a batch of these Chocolate Chip and M&M Christmas Cookies as one of our Thanksgiving dinner desserts, and we'll definitely make more for Santa on Christmas Eve. These cookies are so festive with the red and green M&Ms.

Seahawks Inspired Tinsel Wreath

Christmas will be here before we know, and I've been busy decorating my home, Christmas tree, and wrapping presents. I often buy crafting supplies from the local Dollar Tree. And I recently purchased a couple mini tinsel wreaths. I shared a Silver & Green Christmas Wreath for Day 1 of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop, and now I'm sharing another Seahawks inspired wreath made with items from the Dollar Tree.

Seahawks Themed Christmas Tree

I may no longer live in Washington, but I am still a Seattle Seahawks fan! For a third year in a row, we are have a Seahawks themed Christmas tree!  Since the colors green and blue are my favorite colors, I really enjoy decorating my tree and home in the Seahawks theme. I usually wait until the day after Thanksgiving to put up our tree, but this year I put the tree up the weekend before Thanksgiving. I thought it would be lovely to have the tree up and decorated while we enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner.
