I’m feeling a bit sad that Christmas in July is coming to an end, but I’ve had a lot of fun working up some Christmas items to use this year, though the latest one has taken a lot out of me. I’m hoping to finish it up today, get some photos and finish the video so I can publish it later this evening.
After the C2C Santa Coasters, I shared the Buffalo Plaid Shay Earwarmers, which comes in 4 sizes. It features simple single crochets. I do want to mention though that this crochet pattern is more advanced because of carrying the yarns, but definitely something a confident beginner could do!
I’ve been doing some moving around and organizing in my craft space, and the living room, again – it’s really never ending, hehe! But I finally made a space for and unboxed the Cricut I bought myself for Black Friday last year – yikes! And the Heat Press I got for my birthday earlier this year. I started brainstorming ideas, and I can’t wait to start using them!
If you’re in need of a dinner idea – I got you covered! With this Bacon Burger Mac and Cheese Skillet recipe, you can take a box of mac and cheese to the next level, but still have dinner ready in just 20 minutes. This dish is a regular dinner in our home.
I’ve recently added this 18 oz Red Lobster Tail Back Hurricane Glass to my eBay shop. Both smoothies and mocktails are perfect in this hurricane glass, or any cold beverage in between. It would also make a cute vase with some coastal themed floral pieces and/or picks, or as football decor for the upcoming season.
As well as some DIY Suncatchers, that are ready to paint, like this Sea Turtle. Suncatchers are the perfect craft for anytime! Hang from a sucker cup on the window, or string up and use as an ornament. I added a bunch – would be happy to combine a few and ship for one price!
If you’re interested in either of them, or any other items in my shop, I do accept Best Offer, so feel free to send me an offer, and mention you’ve popped over from this post.
