Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

Happy Saturday Everyone!!! I had a few minutes and I wanted to share a few more Christmas gifts with you!! The first one I came up with the idea last night while I was cleaning my computer/craft/scraproom.... I found an old McDonald's French Fry container ( obviously it wasn't used)... and a BELL went off.. I made a bunch of homemade bath salts.. and was trying to figure out how to "display them"... and this is what I came up with... I still have to make tags that say "BATH SALTS.. Vanilla Scented".... and attach.. but other than that.. they are done!! VOILA!

*** Bare with me PLEASE.. I'm not sure if something is wrong with my new camera or WHAT?? But EVERY single picture I take is Blurry.. and it's ALMOST identical to the one I had before.. so I'm not sure if I'm "missing" something.. or if something is wrong with this camera.. I'm going to read more into the manual.. But right now I'm a little frustrated with it!!


Ok.. here's another gift.. I made this SEVERAL years ago and sent these to a lot of people... now years have passed and I have NEW people in my life... I thought it would be great to re-distribute this craft. This was originally made for me by my MIL .. who made the pattern herself from a display from Country Peddler ( Now I think it's called Americana at Home???) I have changed some of the features to modernize it... and it's SUPER simple for a simple sewer as myself...

BUT.. wouldn't you know it..My Sewing machine DIED on me last night.... I growled... and gruffed... cause I have another CUTE idea for Christmas Gifts but I NEED a sewing machine for it..sigh.... Oh well.. God will provide... right?? OR.. who wants to come over and craft with me..?? Bring your Sewing machine... OK.... LOL LOL...

I am not sure how I found your blog... I think it may have been Rocks in my Dryer??? I noticed in a post you had awhile back that you too like to decorate Primitive. Where are your favorite places to shop mail order? I really need some larger pieces. It is slim pickin's here in Az. Thanks for a heads up. Take Care.

The bath salt idea turned out great! You are very crafty. I am not a crafty person and am in awe of all the things I see on their blogs. Rox keeps telling me to try but beleive me it turns out a mess. Anyway love the Christmas ideas. Sorry about your sewing Machine....I am in awe of anyone who knows how to sew also. I can not eve sew a button on.

Oh my....sorry to hear about your sewing machine Terri! That sucks!!!

And love the bath salts.... I love to make homemade scrubs and stuff, but haven't done it in several years. And your salts make me want to do it again!! Are you sharing the recipe??

And, I can't see that the pics are blurry! Glad you got a new camera, though!!!

That snowman is absolutely adorable! You are a crafting wiz, I tell ya! I am so not a crafty person. I do crafts with the dayhome kids but to make crafts as presents? No way!
