Upcycled Wooden Bowl - Love is Spoken Here
I think I'm hooked to upcycling, and wooden bowls are one of my favorite objects to re-purpose. I found a fun wooden bowl at the thrift store, that was begging me to take it home and give it a color make-over.

Merry Christmas - From Our Home to Yours
I always need tons of neighbor gifts this time of year for neighbors, people in church, teachers, co-workers, friends, etc., etc. I found some super cute little gingerbread houses at the store and immediately the phrase "from our house to yours" came to my mind.
I went home and made some tags to go with the "home" theme.
I was featured in Sew Somerset Magazine!
How lucky am I..... ??!!?
Well, in actuality it was not really ME who was featured, just my vintage sewing pattern hoops that I made as wall decorations.
Remember them? I showed them to you in this post.
'T is the season for coming up with fun and unique White Elephant Gift Ideas

Well, really they were made out of plastic....
What a wonderful time of the year to give some gifts to our neighbors and let them know we care. Included is a free printable to attach to some simple Christ-centered store-bought gifts.
