Another little section

Here's another section of my Christmas pillow cover....

I loved this image of Santa that I found on the internet, so I printed him onto fabric and included him on my pillow cover, along with a vintage tatted doily and a button cluster.

I've found a few more fun things in my travels about the internet, so thought I'd share them with you....

- There's a sweet little tutorial HERE for Christmas napkin rings. 

- If you go HERE you can find a tutorial for making glycerine soap with sweet little dried roses.  Gorgeous, and perfect for gift-giving!

- For those of us who use Keurig coffee and wonder what to do with those used K-cups - there's an adorable little Christmas ornament HERE

- There's a tutorial HERE for a really sweet little Christmas tree ornament - made using a drop cloth!!  Be sure to see the one with the wee red birds!

- For the crocheters out there, you can find a lovely pattern HERE for mistletoe.  Especially fun if you happen to have a sweetheart!

- There are a couple of fun ideas HERE and HERE for using terra cotta flower pots to create Christmas Santas and carolers.  You'll need to scroll down a bit to see them.

- If you happen to have a little girl in your life, you might like to make her one of THESE for Christmas!  (Great stash buster, I think).

Today your quote is from John Miller.... "Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life"
