Weekly Wow's

December 9, 2012

It's Sunday- at last, or maybe your not that excited if you are dreading Monday. With a traveling husband, I treasure every second of our weekends. I hope you do to with the one's that you love.

Look at this creative tree I saw this week from Turtles and Tails. Perfect for a den or library.
If you want to take a small departure from your Christmas decorating this weekend, this would make a great project and a gift for someone special. A Blessed Life Atop a Cake Stand shares her tutorial for her map art.
I wish I had seen this tutorial from Hyphen Interiors before I went out this week and bought some iced branches and paid more money then I needed to from a local store.
Doesn't this look like real birch?   Homespun with Love shares how to make these birch inspired candle holders from paper.
This week I will be back with more Christmas decor, holiday projects and a party!
On Wednesday come link up your most awesome holiday projects or decor. New or old posts welcomed.

  9. Love the candle with nativity theme. During Christmas, most of the crafter used this theme in order to feel the spirit of Christmas.

  10. That book tree is amazing! I could do one in my bedroom with the stacks of books I have on the floor by my bed!
