Burlap & Twine Snowmen

I’m in full Christmas mode lately. 
There’s something about making snowmen that really makes me happy.  Last year I made some sock snowmen and as I put each one together they began to seem just like little people.
These Stately Snowgents are quite majestic themselves.

Made up mostly from styrofoam, burlap and twine, they come together in no time at all.

Nightstand Makeovers

At this time of year, I usually turn my hand to holiday crafts.  I adore making anything Christmas related so my furniture refinishing takes a bit of a back seat.
For those of you who tune in specifically to see furniture makeovers, there is a wealth of them all in one place.
Starting with my own Silver Metallic Nightstand.
But wait…. there’s more !

Finger Knitted Christmas Wreath

I’ve come to the end of my finger knitting for this year.  I wanted to wrap it up with something Christmassy.

I love this Lion Brand yarn in Grass color. It knits up beautifully. I might even take up real knitting sometime soon.

Need a Good Night’s Sleep ?

The good people over at Dormeo Octaspring offered to send me one of their awesome pillows.  I of course, took them up on it right away.  I’m one of those people who never really seems to get a great night sleep.  I have degenerative disc’s in my neck and no matter what type of pillow I buy I just can’t seem to get it right.  Ultimately I wake up with headaches.

Not with this baby. 

I’ve had it for 3 nights now and I really have to say, this truly is the pillow I need.  It offers a kind of support you just can’t get with an ordinary pillow, no matter how firm it is.

Finger Knitting Tutorial

I’ve been finger knitting up a storm!

In case you missed my last post, I’ve taken up something I think is very interesting.  So interesting in fact, that I made my last wreath with finger knitted yarn.  You can see that HERE.

After I had knitted 1 and 3/4 skeins of yarn and wrapped it around a wreath, it looked something like this.

Finger Knitted Succulents Wreath

I think of all the projects I undertake, making wreaths is among my most favorite.  With a little imagination, wreaths can be made with just about anything. 
For this wreath I tried something I hadn’t before, finger knitting.

Finger knitting can be learned in about 5 minutes and after about 20 minutes, you can finger knit watching TV without even looking.  I intend to do a couple more projects with finger knitting, one for Christmas, coming soon.
