I love that fabric bowl!  Oh and that Enjoy Bacon shirt.... Perfection!

I have never made a granny square but that's cause I can't crochet!

My partner in the 12 Days of Christmas swap opened up a wreath I made her.  She had something similar pinned so I gave it a go.

It's wrapped in yarn, the belt is black ribbon, and the buckle is cardstock cut with my Silhouette Cameo.

I wish I had put the belt a little lower but once I glued the ribbon on I couldn't change it...

Here is our tree all lit up last night.  I have a beautiful tree skirt that quaggy made me but I don't want to use it until I know for sure that the pups will not chew it up.  So instead I have a cheap-o skirt that looks okay in the dark!

43  Teen Girl Advent Calendar in Winter Holidays by lindyv321 on: December 01, 2014 12:37:22 PM
Last year both my kids got a LEGO Advent Calendar but I think my daughter has grown out of those now.  I could have just gotten them each one with the little chocolates in it but couldn't resist another LEGO one for my son.  I tried to find something more age appropriate for a 14 year old girl but couldn't so I just made my own.

I bought a blank advent calendar kit online and used washi tape to decorate each box and number stickers to label them.

I was thinking of all kinds of little trinkets that I could fill it with other than just candy but those boxes are rather small...  So I decided to make her an Advent Charm bracelet.  The first box has a bracelet in it and each day has a new charm for her to add to the bracelet.

I hope she likes it... 13-14 is kind of a strange age and I can't seem to please her very often!!!

I am WAY behind and you have all posted such wonderful things recently!!  Way too much awesomeness for me to comment on each thing.

Sorry to all those whose personal lives get judged.  People suck sometimes.  I was judged because I was a teen parent and a very single one to boot!!  Now my daughter is a teenager and most people in my group of friends have kids under the age of 7!  It's kind of weird....

Not sure if I have already entered in the challenge but here's one just in case... The first gift I sent to my partner in the 12 Days of Christmas swap is an advent calendar.

Here is the back:

I also made some peppermint bark using a recipe posted by missingwillow as inspiration

Finally I made my daughter an advent calendar this year.  

The one above is made with paper but this one I used washi tape.

I filled it with a DIY charm bracelet.  Today she got the bracelet and on every other day she will get a new charm to add to it.

I didn't get to the birthday countdown calendar I had on my to do list before her upcoming December birthday so I hope this will make up for it!!! Especially since they now have three advent calendars to open, this and the LEGO one, one with little chocolates, and my stepmom made them a really neat one filled with little goodies.

45  Super Easy Homemade Donuts in Cooking: Challenge Entries by lindyv321 on: November 24, 2014 08:39:45 AM
As a special Halloween treat I made Monster Donuts for my kids.  These actually came together super easy!  The secret??  Use pre-made canned biscuits! 

You will need:

1 can biscuits, anything except flaky layers

3/4 cup oil

1/2 stick butter

1/2 cup sugar

2 TBS cinnamon

Any decorations that you choose, or you can leave them off

Heat your oil in a pan on medium heat then use a cookie cutter (or a shot glass like I did) to cut the center out of the biscuits.

Once your oil is hot put your biscuits in and turn once they are golden brown.  Cook until second side is browned then transfer to a plate.

Continue until all your donuts are cooked. 

Mix your cinnamon and sugar in one bowl and melt your butter in a second bowl.

Dip each side of the donuts into the butter than into the cinnamon and sugar.

You can also fry up the dough you cut out to make the holes!

I then used melted chocolate to attach some edible eyes to make monster donuts for a hauntingly good breakfast.

48  DIY Dyed Bottle Brush Trees in Winter Holidays by lindyv321 on: November 11, 2014 11:13:16 AM
I needed some bottle brush trees in fun colors for some upcoming projects I will be working on.  I did some searching online for colored trees and stumbled upon a post (sorry not sure from where now) saying I can dye my own trees.  So I bought some white trees and some dye and did it!

You will need white bottle brush trees, fabric dye, a plastic cup, and a plate for drying.

I used Rit dye for my trees.  This teal is in liquid form which I really liked and the pink was the powder most people are used to.

Fill your plastic cup up with water and add some dye.  You don't need much of either the liquid or the powder since you are using such a small amount of water.

Dip your tree in. These trees soak up the dye very quickly so only dip it for a few seconds then pull it out to check on the color.  If you want it darker then continue to dip for a few seconds then checking.

Put your trees on a paper plate and let them dry.

Have fun using them in your wintry crafts!

Love the cowl and the wreath!  I need a fall/Thanksgiving wreath too!

I am making some Christmas altered art and needed some retro looking bottle brush trees.  I bought plain white trees and dyed them myself.

I am also making 3 day counter pickles.  Not sure how they will turn out so I am just doing one jar for now.
