First Font - free download

I was playing around last night, and I made this font. It's not perfect. It defiantly needs some kerning. But it's free. If you want to download it, go for it!

Holiday Snowman Candle Craft

My sister saw these cute snowmen made out of glove fingers in a magazine.
My mom, sister, and I decided to make some, glue them to the top of Holiday scented candles and donate them to the Festival of Tree's gift shop this year.
They were easy to make & super fun! We made 60 of them.

I think they would make a great neighbor or co-worker gift.

DIY Felt Snowflake banner Tutorial & Pattern

I'm re-posting my most popular tutorial from almost 5 years ago. Somehow between all those years, all our moves, and all our computer crashes, the downloadable file was damaged.
So, by popular request, I've recreated it for you to download. FREE!

I'm not going to lie. It takes a long time to cut out all these snowflakes. But it's worth it. This banner is also very inexpensive to make.

You will need some "Stiff Felt" in white or your desired color, some Ric-rac or ribbon, sharp scissors, a hot glue gun, sequins, or any fun embellishments you might have. 

1) CLICK HERE to Download and print this 2 page PDF file.
This will be the pattern for your snowflakes.
2) Cut out the paper snowflakes for a pattern.
3) Trace Pattern onto some stiff felt.
4) Cut snowflakes out of stiff felt.
5) Use a hot glue gun to glue sequins or embellishments to the center of each snowflake.
6) Glue each snowflake to ric rac or ribbon to make your snowflake garland.
7) Find a fun place to hang your garland and enjoy!

Note, snowflakes take a little time to cut out. I like to cut them while watching my favorite movie.
Please feel free to share my pictures and this tutorial with your friends. Please direct them to this website to download the snowflake patterns, as the pattern is not intended for
re-distribution or re-sell. Thanks!

This is me way back when, showing my snowflake banner on Studio 5.
