Season’s Greetings, Ho Ho Ho, Happy Festivus, Happy Hanukkah and Merry Merry Merry Christmas friends ! ‘Tis the season for sparkle and shine, homemade treats, crafting, baking, decorating, and holiday cheer! We’ve been busy around here with all of those delights, and I have just a few to share today.
The first is this little ‘Love Stitched’ ornament I made for my stepdaughter who is off at her first semester of college this year. Living in a dorm, she needs something to keep it smelling fresh, so I stitched a sweet sentiment with red embroidery thread on linen, cut out a heart shape, filled it with a lavender and rice mixture, and sewed it all together. I slipped it in her stocking, and I can’t wait till she finds it!
Next, my littlest ones helped paint and glitter up some very merry MDF letters found at a craft store.
I stapled ribbon to the back and suspended them in our dining room area, how fun! You can’t quite tell in the photo, but the white glitter adds more sparkle in the light.
Finally, I made this little lavender filled door hanger to keep in my room even after the holidays. My good friend Cathe sent me some graphics earlier this year, so I added the font and printed it directly on linen with my home printer, the same exact way I printed the linen for these lavender eye pillows.
Here’s the printable PDF if you’d like to print it as art or recreate this at home.
Since it is the season of giving, I have a treat for you! This summer I had over two pounds of dried lavender from my garden after harvest, so I’m giving away to ten readers two each of these little embroidered sachets filled with all natural dried lavender. Yep, I’ve got plenty of it, so I want some of you to have it! No, I did NOT stitch those lavender blooms!! I bought fifty of these 3 x 5 muslin pouches online years ago, aren’t they sweet?
Slip them into your bureau for their aromatic scent or keep them by your bedside for aromatherapy healing! Ten readers will each receive two sachets, winners chosen at random. Simply leave a comment to win and I will mail them out next week! No party link or blog necessary, just leave a comment to be eligible. Giveaway ends Saturday December 11th at midnight PST.
