Inspirational Workshop and a Giveaway!

I am so excited to link up with Gussy Sews today for her Inspirational Workshop, this weeks prompt is "Holiday How-To".  I have to say the Christmas season is my favorite I love all the creative projects.  It just makes me feel great when I make pretty handmade goodness. 

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite finds on Pinterst and one of the gift's I recently made myself that I want to give one of my lucky readers.

This is an awesome 'how to' I found on Pinterest.... I have tried year after year to get a good picture of my Christmas tree, don't we all want to have great pictures of our beautiful trees???  I never would have realized that taking pictures of the Christmas tree was so difficult.  This tutorial shares how to get the best results and I'm super excited to try it when we put the tree up this weekend.  I will definitely come back and share my results.  

This is another tutorial I found on Pinterest was this awesome bow

 Isn't it so cute?  I didn't realize it was fabric (well aside from the fact that it is written right on the picture hee hee) when I first saw it I thought it was paper.  It's such a simple tutorial I can't wait to try it. 

I also wanted to share a project I recently made.  I made two of these brag books one for my partner in the Homemade Gift Exchange over at Craftaholics Anonymous and the second one I made is for a lucky reader.

It's my very first giveaway!
