Christmas Crafties

Craft--does that word conjure up a negative image in your mind?  It somewhat does in mine and I tried to come up with another word, but crafty is what it is.  But should craft have a negative connotation?  The definition of craft is: an activity involving skill in making things by hand.  That isn't so bad, right?  So craft it is!  And I have been getting my Christmas crafting on.
 If you missed my guess post, I made this fun little decoration from an old book.

And I have also done a little nesting in a couple of ice skates.
 Carpets get shampooed tonight and Christmas decor comes out tomorrow as we won't be around for Thanksgiving.  Find more ideas at Donna's Funky Junk Interiors.

  5. I love your skates. Too cute. The bird's nest is so clever. I might have to do a pair of these for my front porch to hang over the sled.
