In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Smallish Christmas crafts
Yesterday was freezing cold here in Indiana
So I decided to stay inside and be crafty.
I've been trying to get into the Christmas spirit....
guess what....it didn't work! But I think these gift tags turned out cute.
I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but after that, only three weeks until Christmas! Not much time to shop, decorate, craft, and plan.
I thought this would be a simple craft to use up some of my scrap booking stuff. Scrap booking supplies are like yarn and material....they multiply when you aren't looking!
These would make good bookmarks too.
I like the nature ones the best.
Making gift cards to use up scrap booking supplies is like making scarves for wine glasses to use up a yarn stash! Not gonna happen! You'd have to make a trillion of them to use up my stash!
But they're cute! I think they would make cute hostess or teacher gifts. You could make several different ones and use them instead of wine charms. Or if you are giving someone a special wine glass,you could make a different scarf for each holiday throughout the year. What do you think?
Do you have any smallish crafty ideas going on this year?
I'm 59. A wife, a beekeeper, a gardener, and a crafter. I like to read; novels and old cookbooks with history in them are my favorites. I've been married for 21 years to a loving, hard-working man, who makes me laugh. We have a little dog that was found dumped in a park, and given to us. He is a boy, but has a girl name. Sorry Dixie. (could be uni-sex I suppose)
We have decided to take a journey together and build a new home on some land we purchased a few years ago. We are building the home ourselves. In 2016 we moved to the main level of our new home. I've created "The House on Hilltop Farm" blog, so I can record the house building journey. The Bee Lady from Hilltop Farm is about everything else going on in my life.
Nice to meet you.
So, I showed my niece my new (old) camper and she said, "I love the name coral belle. Coral reminds me of the ocean and the color of the camper reminds me of the color of the water in the ocean." (Out of the mouths of babes!)
