Upcycled Sweater Wreath

Aren't these wreaths the cutest thing you have ever seen?! Some friends are getting together with me next week and we are going to make these. I can't wait! Think of all the old sweaters in your closet or even better your hubby's sweaters that you can use.

I love jute webbing!

I do love this jute webbing. I have seen it used for so many creative things. Here are just a couple of ideas I pulled off of Pinterest. Weaving around a basket looks awesome!
A wreath for anytime of year would be super easy to make.

This banner is super easy to make too,
These baskets look super embellished with the jute as well.
We have both the red and black webbing at the Queen of Hearts Alpharetta if you feel the need to create some of these awesome ideas.

Look at what I have been making

I don't usually get the jump on Christmas, but maybe this year I will. I am making these cute garlands for the tree. They are made using vintage sheet music. They are super easy and I think will add a festive touch to the tree this year. I also am making a wreath with the paper comes made from the sheet music. When I found the book of music for piano at Country Living a couple of weeks ago, I knew it would be perfect for this application and all for $5.00! WooHoo!

Magilatootsies=Yummy!

I met the nicest lady yesterday at St.Piux's annual holiday show. Her name is Kathy Gale, and she makes some of the yummiest goodies around. Her company name is Magilatootsies, such a great name. She had samples of all of her wonderful products. I was loving the "Magic Cookie" it was delicious and correctly named. She will be at the Woodstock market on November 30, but you can also find her goodies here on her website. They would make great gifts too!

Hurricane Sandy

The pictures from Hurricane Sandy are unbelievable. The people are now isolated stuck in their homes with no heat, food, water or power. I can't imagine how hard it must be. I know the Red Cross is coming in and doing the best they can for these people. It is easy if you want to help. I texted 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross. It's so easy and every penny will help. How about it, can you text 90999 to help just a bit?
