    My craft for this holiday season will be glitter pine cones. I've been collecting these all year. Picking up one or maybe two at a time while on a walk, bike ride or vacationing. I'll "glitter" them, then put around the house to add some Christmas bling.

    I for years have been wanting to make a personalized wreath to represent the sports teams that I love. last year I clearance shopped for all the left over stuff and found some stuff that would work great. So this year I am going to do my best to actually make it and not just go out and buy a one time use wreath like I have the past 5 years.

    I am new to knitting, but this year I will try to knit Christmas stockings for my two adorable grand-puppies!

    I am going to make a yo-yo snowman out of white fabric. I am going to decorate the snowman with different colored fabrics for the hat and the scarf. Then I am going to attempt to make family snowmen wreaths. Each person would get a different colored hat and scarf. Some will be bigger snowmen and some will be smaller depending on if you are an adult or a child.

    I am going to look for the perfect tree limb, spray paint it silver or gold, then cement it in a pot and hang some funky color lights on it. I am going to put it out on the front porch for the Holidays and hope that it snows. The lights look great at night covered in snow. Happy Holidays! :)
