Christmas Craft Link Party!

By Kate Riley December 6, 2010

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.

Now it’s your turn!  What have you been up to ?

Time to show off your holiday creations, so let’s get started!

Bring on the ornaments, the wreaths, the garlands, the banners, the craftiness!

Please be sure to at a minimum visit the link in front and behind you to be kind.

Links will close Saturday December 11th at midnight PST.

  1. How sweet to make ornaments for your stepdaughter….I was nice enough to just give old ornaments I was done with to my two girls out on their own. Love the letters too! Thanks for hosting, and I’m looking forward to all the inspiration.

  2. I wish I could grow lavender! I tried the one year and I didn’t get one bloom. Got my first anon negative comment tonight, it’s a little saddening at this time of year that some people get a kick out of being mean ;( Love your blog!!

  3. Lavender is such a soothing sent! I would love a bag to put in my nightstand drawer! Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I really hope I win this one!

  4. I love that you got your kids involved. Everything looks fabulous…as always :)

  11. Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful ideas and crafts. I wanted to tell you that a girlfriend and I ran into each other unexpectedly at GW and we both had to talk about how we love your blog and we both are followers. Lovng the fun in North Carolina and sharing with the girls.

    Always, Teresa T.

  12. I love the embroidered heart..that it is so sweet and special..and will hold memories for years! That is such a great idea… Your sachets are so pretty too!! I am so uncreative… I find so much inspiration among fellow bloggers and after my ohhing and ahhing I’m thinking, “Why didn’t I think of that?!?”

  13. Hi Kate!
    Love all your special handmade decorations…especially the ones by the little ones. :) Wow, that’s a lot of lavender…how awesome to grow your own! Hope my wreath transformation works ok for a craft…it’s about as crafty as this girl gets. :) Off to add your link to my post. Thanks for the party! :)

  14. I just finished a complete bedroom re-do inspired by CG! :) Would love to have some lavender to add to it…

  16. Oh.. I love lavender, and those sachets are so lovely! I love all of your handmade decorations. I’m thinking of picking up some letters from the craft store too, and giving them a nice glass glitter treatment. :)

  17. I LOVE the Merry letters…and even more because your kids helped. What a great simple idea, I think I shall have to dream up a place to do something similar in my home. Thanks for sharing…and for hosting the party!

  25. Thank you for the giveaway which is very very charming! I love the links and am keeping it on so that I can visit each one slowly. These have to be savoured not rushed through!

  36. Ohhh, I LOVE lavender! I wish I could grow it here, but I just never have any luck! *fingers crossed*

    Happy Holidays!!!

  37. lovely! I would so enjoy having some lavender, I had my own few plants this year but went away and didn’t get them harvested in time. Thank you for considering us!

  38. I LOVE the smell of lavender. We have a lavender farm in Kula, which overlooks the bi-coastal view of Maui, and it’s one of my favorite places in the world. I also wear their lavender lip balm every night before bed to keep my lips soft and kissable! I’d love to toss one of these sachets in my lingerie drawer!

  39. Love the Joyeaux Noel sachet!!!! If I win the lavender I am totally making one for myself!

  40. Oh I have a great item I need to link up to this party, I just have to go home tonight & finish it! :-) I’d love to win some lavender too! Thanks for hosting. :-)

  41. I would love to win these , I only had two lavender bushes ,planted a few more this year so these could hold me over a little bit longer ,lol .

  42. Beautiful homemade decorations. Thanks for hosting the party. Off to mingle at the party.:) Thanks for the chance to win.

  43. Oh my word, look at all this crafty goodness! Can’t wait to look around…I love your glittery letters and what a lovely giveaway! If mine isn’t considered a “craft” you can throw it out!

  44. First off, Merry CHRISTmas!!! Love, love, love your blog. We are trying to get moved in our new/old house so Santa can come down our new chimney this year. We are working out bootys off trying to make it work for our son!!! Wish us luck!! Gotta go, gotta get back to painting.

  45. You are so so talented! Lavender is wonderful to help relax and fall asleep, I found some lavender lip gloss and put it on before bed each night! The sachets would be a heavenly addition! You really should give some pointers on how you were able to grow so much lavender. I tried one year a failed, not sure what I am doing wrong, anyway, Merry Christmas to you and yours! Love your blog! Candy

  46. It has been a little while since I sat and perused a blog party – but this one was definitely worth it. So many crafty ladies with even more crafty ideas! Thanks for hosting!

  47. Hi Kate!

    I think I’m party participant #260–what a great crowd you’ve attracted! I got waylaid in the making of my craft by cutting my finger last week–it’s hard to do much with stitches in the tip of your finger! But I’m finally here, and so glad to be here!

    Hope you’re having a wonderful Advent season. I can speak from personal experience that your homegrown lavender is just sumptuous–I was a lucky winner of your lavender giveaway earlier this year. If I should happen to win again, I’d probably pass along my sachets to a couple of my best friends. Believe me, they’d have to be good friends for me to share such a sumptuous treat!

    Thanks for hosting a wonderful party!

  48. I would love the lavender sachets. It brings back memories of my girls being flower girls in their cousin’s wedding. The guests threw dried lavendar in the air around the couple as they left. The girls and I have wanted to make sachets too. Where would we be able to find dried lavender at a reasonable price?

    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  49. I love lavender!!! Thanks for your generosity and the opportunity to enter such a lovely giveaway!

  50. I love lavendar! When I was a kid my mom took my brothers and me to a lavendar farm near the beach and we bought lavendar tea and lavendar honey. It was soooo good. Kind of a boring visit when you’re a kid, but I’m sure I would love it now. I’m loving all of your holiday craft ideas too!

  51. So, it looks like I’m incredibly late for your party! I can’t wait to see all those fun crafts everybody has posted and find a couple to add to my already long list of to-do-things-before-Chrsitmas. :)
    Love the sachets!

    Marry Christmas!


  52. Love your blog… you have so many good ideas and creative techniques to offer. Happy Holidays!

  53. Wow! Thanks for all the great inspiration, especially in the holiday season! I love how you really do it all up for Christmas!

  54. Your blog inspires me daily. Even when I wasnt crafting due to going through a hard time, I always read your blog. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas!

  55. Love your ideas…I used to embroider back in my hippie days and seeing all your little crafts brought back lots of fun and relaxing memories. Maybe I will find the time to do it again. Love, love, love those lavender bags!!

  56. Hi,
    been enjoying your blog for a month or so now. wake up to read this one weekdays. lively & full of ideas. Also those lavender bags look great. Lucky you to live in CA.

  57. Stopping by the craft store today after my volunteer time in kindergarten. We will buy letters and sparkle up Merry and hang from the mantle of son and future darling-in-law….they will be greeted with such festivity when they return from business trip to China! Thanks for the great idea!! I love lavendar!

  58. I love all your crafty ideas and you have gathered an enormous crowd for the Holiday link up! I was curious where you get your MDF and is it reasonably priced? I’ve wanted to make monograms or phrases/sayings for awhile now but didn’t know what to use. The letters I find pre-made in our area are quite small, something for a scrapbook. Thanks a bunch and keep up the awesome work! You are an inspiration!

  59. I love the smell of lavender. It is really soothing. We use it in my yoga classes to relax at the end of the session.

  67. I love the lavendar! We just found a lavendar farm near our wedding site where we’ll take pictures between the ceremony & reception. I’m looking for a nice guest bag item that incorporates lavendar!

  68. Would love to have the lavendar bags!!!! Would make this apartment feel more homey!!!! We live in Tennesse but are in Price UT because of my husbands job. We brought only cloths with us and furnished the apartment from DI. The lavendar bag would smell so good in here. Can’t waite til I get home to plant some of my own……………….

  70. That is a serious number of talented crafters!!!

    And I love what you made your oldest…I mostly love the relationship you seem to have with her. The ‘step’ dynamic is a tricky one, and you seem to have mastered it beautifully. What a blessing your friendship must be to her!

  71. Hi Kate, I’m Irene from Greece; I’ve been reading your blog for some time now and I’m really amazed by all these lovely things you make, I find you really inspiring! And don’t these lavender pouches look lovely or what? I just hope I’m not too far away to be sent a couple if I’m lucky enough to win :) Lavender is my favourite!

  77. Oh to have an apartment filled with the relaxing scent of lavender…how delightful! and These are so very cute! Thank you for this opportunity!

    Can’t WAIT to dive into all these craft ideas! Getting a cup of coffee now…thanks for the giveaway!

  82. I’m done with my decorating. Now I want to focus on some new DIY projects, thanks to the link up love you’ve got going on. Happy Holidays.

  83. I was just thinking as I was reading your blog that the heart would be so cute just to hang on my grand daughters door and maybe fill them with lavender. And here you are having a give away I already won cause I’m stealing your idea ;)

  84. Thank you for hosting. It’s so fun to see all the creative ideas! That heart satchel is such a sweet idea – I’m sure your stepdaughter will love it. I think a lavendar satchel would find it’s way into my laundry room – it would make that chore way more plesant! :)

  86. I absolutely love the smell of lavender. I have some sachets that are a bit older and losing their scent and would love to have some new replacements, especially if they came from one CENTSATIONAL girl:) LOVE your blog!

  87. So many fabulous ideas, far too little time … maybe I’ll stop sleeping this month! Thank you for the great ideas and opportunity to win the lavender sachets – they’re just lovely.

  88. I love the “MERRY” craft. Looks like a lot of fun, and it really looks nice on display. Just letting you know this is the FIRST linky party I’ve posted to. I’m kind of excited!!

  89. Kate,

    Once again, you have made something so lovely!

    And then to have taken the time to hand-make such a thoughtful ‘little something’ for your stepdaughter. You are an amazing mom!

    Thank you for generously offering such lovely gifts to 10 lucky ladies (of course, I am keeping my fingers crossed);) LOL

    (It’s a treat to know I am not the only one thinking of a ‘restful’ scent today. I just finished making some lavender sugar scrub. Ahhhhhh…)

  90. Oooh…10 winners! That makes me feel like I actually have a chance! And now I can’t wait for the kiddos to go to bed so I can browse through all the links!

  91. O Holy Crafts…my eyes are brightly shining….it is the night of the glue gun’s great work…

  92. I would love some lavender! I must say, this is an impressive turn out for a link-up…it makes me feel better about not contributing:)

  93. LOVE this link party! I’m having fun checking everything out! The lavender sachets are wonderful… I’m brewing up my own hair conditioner at the moment (chamomile and lemongrass with essential oils added).

  94. I love lavender! I used to have some growing in my yard, but Georgia is just too wet most years. Your website is so enjoyable – a daily read for me.

  95. You gotta gift my clever & crafty blogger firend!

  98. These are so pretty. I remember seeing you show off some of the ones you made in the late summer (I think) and I’ve bookmarked it to make eventually. In the meantime, I’d love some of the ones you’ve made!

  99. I love the smell of lavender! I am really hoping to put in some of my own as our landscaping progresses. Thanks, Kate!

  100. I love the lavender sachets!! & I have several places that could use a little ‘smell good’ added to them! :)

  101. Those are so beautiful, I’d love to have one to put next to our bed or in my undies drawer! How lovely!

  102. I discovered your blog months ago from Made by Girl blog. I really like your style and reading the blog on a daily basis, and let me tell you what a nice giveaway!

  103. ooh ooh! i’d LOVE some lavender!! at yoga the other day i tried out a lavender and flax seed sachet you put on your eyes and i’ve been *dying* to make one myself :)

  104. A lovely sachet. Thank you for the opportunity to be embraced by lavender. Just perfect for the wintery days ahead.

  105. I love the scent of lavender! Just what is needed to help relax after chasing an 18 month old all day long@@@

    Merry Christmas!

  107. I have lavender planted in my backyard, but they did not bloom this year unfortunately!

  108. I wish I could grow some lavender. I seem to do a great job with weeds and ivy but not so well with anythin I actually want. :) Love the letters! What a great project!

  109. I love that you include the kids… So many times blogger posts are too perfect and not about the real meaning of the season!

  110. I love all the crafty things you have been up to! I think the door hangers would be a good idea in my house, my two little girls probably couldn’t destroy that. :)
    I love lavender, grew up with a lot of it and visited a gorgeous lavender farm many years ago. Unfortunately I think it’s too darn cold to grow lavender here in chilly central Canada! Send some my way! :)

  111. I love lavender….I’ve never tried drying it but this sparks my “want to”. Your ideas are so unique!

  112. I’ve tried again and again to grow lavender and I have always failed. I’d love to win these darling sachets! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  113. What a beautiful site. I stumbled upon it recently and have moved it to the top of my list of favorite sites to visit. I was in Paris this summer … your sachets remind me of that wonderful trip. I’m so envious. I grow lavender here in Texas but it does not do as well as yours seems to. Thanks for the inspiration.

  114. The sachets are beautiful, and those colors would look perfect in my baby’s room. Coincidentally, that is where the diaper pail is… ;) Thanks!!

  115. My friends daughter used lavender at her wedding in November, and I just wanted to have a bunch to take home, it smelled so good. Thanks for a chance win such a beautifully presented gift!

  116. These are tooooo cute. I also cannot grow lavender where I live. would love these…thanks for the chance…

  117. Hi Kate-

    It’s snowing – how festive to have your very own holiday snow. Lots of inspiration, too. Great turn-out. I believe there is a lot of Christmas craftiness going on.

    My best- Diane

  118. Those lavender sachets brought back memories of my husband’s great grandma. She grew it and often put together small bundles for us to bring home when we would visit. Oh, how I miss that lovely lady.

  119. I bought the same letters that you used in your “MERRY” project to cover with red glitter and hang with everyones stocking as a way to personalize. :) Can’t wait to dig into all of these linked craft ideas! :) GG

  120. I would love to win! Thank you so much for the chance.

    I’m having a giveaway on my blog as well. It closes tonight – feel free to stop by and enter if you’d like to!

  121. What amazing things to make for the home! I am bookmarking so many of these projects to make throughout the next year for next Christmas!

  122. I think all of your ideas are amazing, and I love checking in every few days to see what is new. Thanks for the inspiration!

  123. What a great post…. love seeing all of the crafts – this time of the year is so much fun!

  124. Okay, that little heart and the “merry” decorations—adorable. Saving both ideas! And lavender would be heaven to have….when we bought our house the former owner had nasty old lady smelling perfume crystals in the linen closet and even after repainting the closet and new shelves we can STILL smell the scent. Gross.

    Off to visit my comment neighbors!

  125. Oh I love your ideas – the Love ornament is so cute! I’ve been spending all my crafty time on a LARGE cross stitch project for my mom, but Sock Monkey Saturday is this weekend at the American Visionary Art Museum here in B’more, so I’ll be making my annual monkey!

    Count me in for a sachet! :)

  126. The lavender sachets are so pretty!
    I love your graphic you shared, I think it might be a craft for me tomorrow :) Thank you!
    Happy Holidays!

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  137. My daughters are named Joy and Noel; consequently, I always love Christmas decor with the Joyeux Noel motif!

  138. In the spirit of the holiday season I would like to share a cute song that describes the meaning of Xmas.

    What is Christmas? Christmas is Love.
    Angels flying up above.
    Merry Christmas, I Love You!
    Merry Christmas, I Love You!

  145. Hi I came across your blog and I loved it!!! I was wondering if you remember where you purchased the lavender bags from, they would be perfect for my best friends bridal shower and I can’t find them anywhere. Thanks so much :-)

    • Hi Bonnie, it’s been years! I wish I had a receipt or could recall, all I know is I ordered them online…..
