Chrismas in August!

If you have never read Elizabeth's blog over at Creative Breathing then you are missing a wonderful and creative blog!  Elizabeth make the most darling tags, garlands and softies ever and she is so generous that she shares her patterns!

I fell in love with her little snowman and ran right out to Michaels the very day she posted the pattern and got the supplies for it.  This past weekend it finally rained and I had all day inside to play so I made my snowman!
Mine is so where as good as Elizabeth's, but I love him anyway!  The directions were easy to follow and he only took a couple of hours to make! Thank you Elizabeth for sharing all your wonderful "craftiness"!

And speaking of people being craft, yesterday I was out at Sam's Club and was very excited to see that the 2010 BH&G Holiday Crafts magazine was out!
And guess who is on the very back page!!! Out very only Kelly Winn from There's No Place Like Home!!Way to go Kelli!  And I will definitely be making that snowman tag too!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Linda! I have goosebumps on my arms seeing my own pattern created by someone else! I am thrilled beyond words. How cute your hat is with the sparkly poms! Inspiration Station to be found here! Truly, I am on a blogging break but not a crafting break. (Wait until you see my Halloween garland) I am contemplating having a book published of my patterns, and you have given me valuable information that they are easily made. Thank you for this lovely surprise. Back to my break..... Elizabeth

Hi Linda! Thank you for sharing my exciting news! I wasn't expecting it to come out until the 3rd, but I was grocery shopping this past Friday and saw it right by the check-out. :0)

Your little snowman is darling...I love it!

I used to do a lot of crafting but not anymore. However that little snowman is just as cute as can be.

Such a beautiful snowman, you should be very proud. I always admire Elizabeth's creations, and I made a promise to myself to begin trying to do them too. I hope I'm half as successful as you have been with the snowman cutie!
