In winter, when all your windows are shut tight, your house can take on a stale smell. Odors from your furnace, from cooking, even laundry, can make the air in your house not very pleasant to smell. But there is an easy fix for this! Simmering Potpourri is easy to make and gives your house a most delicious fragrance.
I was wrapping gifts last night and I had several in the same size box. Unfortunately, it was leaving me with scraps of wrapping paper that I was not sure were big enough to use. I didn't want to toss perfectly good paper, so I decided to get creative and use two different papers on the same package.
I thought it came out really cute, so cute I plan to wrap some more in the same manner, just because I like it!
It is always better not to waste things, so if you can use all your wrapping paper, that is less you will have to buy. Not to mention that people will see your frugality as imagination and craft talent!
Have fun when preparing for Christmas!

I love sock animals! I think the thing I love about them the most is the fact that they are almost always handmade. You have to love something that is made by hand, especially if it is a gift. I keep a file of sock animal patterns, and since the holidays are coming up, I thought I would share them with you. They are such thoughtful gifts for new babies, little girls or boys and even for the elderly. People love to receive things that are hand made because it shows that you are willing to spend time making a gift especially for them. It is more personal. Trust me, I have given sock animals as gifts for years and they are always well received.
