We'll start out with a gift idea for the kids. Oopsey Daisy shares a great tutorial for making an ABC mat. I would really love to make one of these for the boys to play with this winter. I think they would have a blast with it!
Diary of a Crafty Lady and requires some simple supplies!! A great way to teach colors :-)
Lines across my face is a blog that I currently follow and she is just starting out with a series called The 13 Crafts of Christmas. I won't promise to share all 13 because, well, if I don't love them . . .but this first one is cute. I love countdowns despite having never made any version of one yet - so maybe I'll make this one eventually!
Switching back to Thanksgiving, I like this idea for a Thankful Tree from Bargain Bound. It is a simple idea that fills up a wall. The only thing that I can't wrap my mind around is . . .the trees are off the tree; they add them to the tree each day with a thankful thought written on it . . .shouldn't the leaves be on the tree and then as you write a thankful thought, they fall on the ground? Or am I just being too much of a realist? What is your opinion?
The Country Chic Cottage is also hosting a series called "Handmade Holidays" with 12 different handmade gift ideas. The first one is for Guest Slippers. I don't have many guests but this would still make a cute gift for anyone!
That's it for this week - with some of these series starting up, I'm hoping to have more ideas to share this week. Things seemed a little slim this week !
