Holiday Inspiration!

Here is a peek of a new project with "Have a Cookie" I have in the latest issue of...

Hope you can check it out and see the surprise inside! ;)

Let Crafts 'n Things® show you how to make the 2010 holiday season your creative best! Hand-crafted holiday cards and gifts, quick-and-clever ornaments and dazzling décor ideas abound in the December issue. Check out the Budget-Savvy Gifts section for a dozen handmade gift ideas that fit your budget and don't scrimp on style. You don't need to spend a fortune to make your loved ones feel treasured! Be sure to say "hello" to some of our cutest Christmas friends ever, including a houndstooth holiday bear, recycled sock penguins(my 8 year old really wants to make these together!), festive snowmen to sculpt, stitch or sew, and, of course, a jolly St. Nick or two. Go directly to the top of Santa's "Nice List" when you give homemade decadent treats -- from heavenly cappuccino truffles to beautifully packaged chocolate chip banana bread(from the lovel y and talented Keri Lee Sereika), every morsel packs a dollop of holiday happiness (lots of Gina K Designs stamps spotted in this section! :) and I LOVE that not only do they show the packaging but they inllcude the recipe!!) Do you love decorating for the holidays? Discover the secrets to creating sophisticated holiday décor on a shoestring, then invite the girls over for a special night of Christmas cookie painting in our Girls' Night In spectacular. Creativity and food -- who can beat that?! And new this year, don't miss our special 30-Minute Ornaments showcase, I've actually made a list here of stuff I want to recreate! Whatever your style, you're sure to find at least one special addition for your tree. Happy Holidays indeed!
Special shout out to my girl Carolyn who among MANY awesome projects made one of the most adorable card with Wee Tees I have ever seen! :)


  1. Love your cookie card, Melanie! I'm going to have to hit Barnes and Noble this weekend to get a copy of Crafts n' Things - sounds like there are some great holiday ideas in it.

  2. Such a cute card Melanie. I looked for this yesterday in the craft stores but they didn't have it. Will have to check B&N next time.

  3. Cute card! I'll be on the lookout for the mag. I love Carolyn's cards!

  4. Great card! Thanks for the info, this looks to be a must have issue this month.
