Holiday Party for a good cause!

Today I hosted a holiday party for good friends! It was a wonderful few hours of good company, good food and most importantly - a project for a good cause. We enjoyed a brunch table of goodies and then made blankets and assembled bags for the nonprofit Project Night Night, Project Night Night helps children in homeless shelters by providing them with a blanket, stuffed animal and story book. Guests brought books and stuffed animals - I prepped fleece for blankets and then we tied them during the party. We assembled the bags and taged them for girl or boy and appropriate age. It was alot of fun to visit and do something to help others.

 Hot beverage cups with homemade felt cozies:

 Personalised cereal spoons for each guest:

The finished bags!

Advent Calendar

My parents have made my sister and I an advent calendar every December since we were very little. Each year's is different and unique and definitely one of my favorite traditions of the holiday. This year, I wanted to make Advent Calendars for four of the little people in my life. I sewed felt stocking with fun designs for each day, strung the stockings on ribbon and them filled the stocking with fun, little gifts! Two went to three children in England and one to a little girl much closer to me. Enjoy!

Holiday Cookie Buffet

Belated photos from a Holiday OPen House I co-hosted with my family before the holidays. We have a buffet of so many delicious cookies! Color scheme was gold and white with a little sparkle thrown in for good measure. It was all as delicious as it looks!
