Metallic Holiday Silhouettes

Have you been hitting the sales? Mike, Mary and I ended up some black Friday shopping, we had to go buy wood shaving and stopped at Herb Phillipson’s for winter gloves on the way home. Mike says he’ll go with me to Michael’s tomorrow to buy picture frames for Christmas gifts but I might end up going it alone. If you happen to be out shopping the craft sales pick up a 4 pack of 6×6 canvases for this fun winter holiday silhouettes project.

I love the holiday for so many reasons but number one is time spent with family.  I knew I was going to be hanging out with my nephew so I scrounged up a few supplies for a fun crafting session. He’s a super active not-quite-3-year-old and this held his attention for about 15 minutes. I also discovered he’s about as easy to photograph as Bigfoot so all the pictures of him came out blurry.

Instead of an over priced candle why not make your own home scenting gift this year? Aroma beads are small plastic balls that absorb and disperse fragrance. They’re fool proof and easy to make. You can display them in small organza bags or in these pretty mason jars with decorative lids.
