Oh hello. I was just browsing the links at the Holiday Craft Party from last week, and all I can say is Wow. I mean seriously. There are some very creative, talented, and crafty people out there, who all happened to link up their creations last week. And would you be shocked to hear there are 785 of them. Yeah. How crazy cool is that? So I just couldn’t help but highlight a few. This post is kinda like a BOTB, but holiday crafty style, and here are twenty five creations you’ve just gotta see!
