Craft time!

I am a lover of crafting! It's fun to make something and know that you put love and work into and it's a nice feeling when you make gifts for people. They are so much more personal than buying gifts. I have been working hard on Christmas ornaments as I've said in earlier posts. Also, I was crocheting a blanket but I think I'm going to start on a scarf or some granny squares, something smaller and less daunting. Blankets are a lot of work and time. Fun, but not the best idea for your first crocheting project. Here are some crafts and things that i've been dying to try.

Headbands:

Here is the link for these:

Next, we have snowy balloon ornaments:

I love these granny squares. I hope I can figure out how to make them and make myself a beautiful blanket someday.

These flowers are so cute. I can't wait to make some and put them everywhere in my house!

Lastly, stiffened hanging paper doilies. They are so pretty and would look perfect in front of our huge windows in our house.

I love these crafts and I hope I can get around to them all soon!

Ciao!
