Two years ago I posted tons of Fall links…… I’m sure most of them are still active…. Thought you all might enjoy….
A friend of mine just introduced me to this incredible site with tons and tons of free craft ideas ~ all the way from crochet, jewelry making, home decor, sewing and lots more.
Sign up for their free newsletter, too. I’m so excited!
Here are just a few of their cutesy projects..
Birdie Baby Blanket ~ my soon to be butterfly needs a pink one. Cute!
Christmas Star Afghan ~ so pretty! I wish I knew how to knit.
Easy Washcloths ~ These would be so pretty for a guest bathroom.
For me WFMW click here.
I made this today… It is so adorable. I am thinking of making these as little birthday gifts for my friends. The picture doesn’t do this cute little sucker any justice. The ice cream looks disproportional compared to the cone, but in real life it’s just as cute as can be.

How to Make Snowman Sculptures
2 cups Ivory Snow detergent
Things for your snowman
Make your “snow” by mixing the Ivory snow with the water and beating it with a hand mixer until the consistency of dough.
Immediately shape into 3 snowman shape balls. The head a litle smaller than the middle, etc.. You can use toothpicks to hold the balls together as you stack them on top each other.
Now add your arms and eyes. Use twigs or popsicle sticks for arms, buttons or small beads for eyes. Make a scarf out of felt scraps or crochet a yarn chain. We used pompoms and pipepcleaners to make earmuffs. A orange pipe cleaner cut and folded into a small triangle was our nose.
These look cute on a stand or mantle.
