New on the blog, a tutorial showing how to upcycle containers, such as food containers, into Christmas ornaments! I made each of my kids a personalized ornament from food containers I saved during our trip to Harry Potter World this past summer so every year they will remember that special vacation. This was a fast, easy craft that would be lots of fun to make with your kids! I'm happy I finally managed to finish this project because I've been wanting to get it done for ages but I've just been swamped. A couple more weeks of craziness and then I look forward to a break! As most of you know, we have had a pretty rough year in which we were slammed with tons of unexpected bills and medical crises, so I am happy to be able to save money by making meaningful gifts as well. For those of you who don't enjoy making gifts or decorations, my shops are stocked with all kinds of new stuff including handmade and collectible Hallmark ornaments, LulaRoe, Thirty-One, Jamberry Nail Wraps, and already-restored vintage dolls. Link to them all from the Home page!
