Winter Crafts Blog Carnival


I know it doesn’t feel like it, but the winter holidays will be here before you know it! I love to make gifts for family members and friends: ornaments, wall decorations, baked goods, you name it. However, don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m having a hard time deciding on which crafts to make this year. Wouldn’t it be great if we could trade tried and true crafting projects with others? Get a been there/done that, here are some tips assessment, rather than just Googling random ideas?

So, Winter Crafts Blog Carnival 2010 was born! Here’s all you have to do to participate:

1) Sometime between now and the 24th, write a post detailing directions for a favorite craft. Make sure to include a picture!
2) Come back here anytime between next Tuesday, Sept. 21st and Friday the 24th and link up!
3) Visit the other blogs and get some great ideas!

Feel free to write and link up more than one post!

Also, please let other people know about this blog carnival. The more participants, the more ideas we’ll all have to draw from! Post to Facebook! If you’re on Twitter, use the hashtag #wintercrafts (feel free to use a tweet like: Need gift ideas? Join in the #WinterCrafts Blog Carnival, hosted by @MarfMom:

Any questions? Leave them in the comments! :-)

* Note: Crafts do NOT have to be winter-themed! They just need to be something you can use as a gift. Some of the ones I show will be Christmas decoration themed, but not all of them.

    Didn’t you just knit an animal for a baby shower? Take a picture of it and explain the pattern and that will be perfect! :-)

    Paper Medallions are great to replace bows on gifts, to frame, or use as ornaments. :)
