Cute Christmas Round-Up

Since my surgery a few days ago, I have had plenty of time to scroll through other blogs and see all the wonderful holiday posts!  Thought I would share a few of my favorites with you!

Isn't this the cutest?  I love the burlap, the red stripes, and, of course, the tree!  Found this at The Casual Craftlete.  Nothing casual about, Katie is a pro!

This Twine Snowman found at acrosstheboulevard is super cute!  Who needs snow?

This front porch holiday decor is  so, well, Christmasy!  See it at Southern Seazons.

These DIY Chalkboard Ornaments are just the thing for a cute gift or as an addition to your tree!  Jessica at did a great job!

Thanks for visiting twochicksandamom!

Felt Santa Featured Twice This Weekend!

It is always exciting for us to have a craft or recipe featured at a link party.  It's even more exciting to have the same one Featured twice in a weekend!  Friday morning, we received an email from that our Felt Santa was being featured at her Pin Me Linky Party! Whoop, whoop!


Later in the day, we received a comment that Jill at Jembellish's Saturday Spotlight was Featuring our Santa as well!  Double whoop, whoop!

Pretty exciting for us!  If you haven't seen our cute Felt Santa Stuffed with Goodies then check the tutorial out here Felt Santa Stuffed with Goodies

A few scraps of felt, a few minutes of sewing straight stitches, some glue AND some wrapped candies and you have a festive gift!

Merry Christmas and thanks for visiting!
