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.


  1. So True...we started calling them "projects" for our womens events at church. Better received :) I like your "Christmas crafts"! Laurel

  2. I too find myself rethinking using the word craft but sometimes that is just what it is!

  3. My sister delineate craft by saying either crappy crafts or beautifully handmade.;) Love the skate...

  4. That sounds so nice- carpets shampooed and christmas decor. I need to do all of that as well. I love the Joy book. Very festive :)

  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.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
