My Friday Finds . . .
A few of the things I find each week which pique my curiosity or inspire me to want to do something, create something, cook something, or become a better person! I hope they will pique your curiosity or inspire you in some way as well!
Use an old book cover to create a new scrapbook for the holidays. From The Nerd Nest. I love this idea. Plus the old pages you take out could be used for altered art.
Holiday Card Holder anyone? What a unique idea and great repurposing. From Four Corners Design.
Martha Stewart. Table Place Card Holders from twigs and branches. Unique! I love it! Such a simple idea!
I REALLY love this one from Christmas.365 Greetings. How very pretty and such a simple thing.
I could not find a source for this, but what a lovely idea. This is so cute and so simple. Three candy canes glued together and tied with a bow. The perfect place card older. You could glue them with Royal Icing glue. Then the whole thing is edible. (Except for the bow and the card.)
Christmas Cookie Cans for giving using Pringles containers. From Fun Squared. Now I will have to save my Pringles Containers all year round for this! Wish I had thought of this myself! It's a beautiful way to present cookies to neighbors and friends!
30 + Cute ways to wrap Christmas Presents. From No Biggie.
No Source, but I love this idea of using an old picture frame for a unique and pretty door wreath. Its a great way to use up some extra baubles as well!
This is cute. A DIY Family Photo Christmas Wreath. I love it! From The Crafting Chicks. Its supposed to be for Valentines Day, but it would work for Christmas very well I think!
Create Craft Love. A lighted Burlap Garland. Simple.
Crafts Unleashed. Embroidery Hoop Ornaments. Cute!
Red Velvet Cake Roll with Chocolate and Peppermint Buttercream Frosting. From Platter Talk. This looks so good! A great alternative to Christmas Pudding.
Reindeer Cookies from I Heart Naptime. Wish we could get Nutter Butters here.
Cookie Cutter Fudge from Betty Crocker. So sweet and I don't mean that just because of the sugar content! These are cute!
Mason Jar Friendship Soup. With a free printable label. From Oh My Creative. What a great neighbor or friend Christmas Gift.
Manicure/Pedicure in a jar. I love it! Complete tutorial on You Tube. Also for many others.
Snowman Soup from Oh My Creative.
Free Mug Cosy Pattern. This would make a great gift along with a lovely mug. From Patterns For Crochet.
A Simple Granny Shawl. Nice. I love this. From All Free Crochet. This would make a great gift. A great way to use up bits and bobs as well.
Ravelry. A cute neck warmer to knit. Love the ruffle.
I love these curtains. Art Com Quaine.
It might take me until next summer to get this done, but I like it. A Crochet Fly Curtain. (Necessary over here because we don't have window screens or screen doors.) From Mrs Thomasina Tittlemouse. (Loving the Blog name.) I really REALLY like this. A complete Tutorial.
And those are my finds for this week. I hope you found something of value that you can use. I find lots more than this, but these are things I think you just might like. I hope that you did!
A thought to carry with you . . .
Sometimes the wrong choices
bring us to the right places.
In The English Kitchen today. Crockpot Turkey Breast. This was excellent. I am doing my Christmas Turkey crown this way for sure this year. We loved it.
It was tender, moist and delicious. And the gravy was to die for.
Have a great Friday! Don't forget!
