What you will need:
*Could use any size jar lid from any container (I just happened to have a ton of baby food jars at the time!)
*also, you can get a pack of hair ties at the dollar store! they don't need to be the best for hair, just for hanging ;)  I used hair ties because I bought them for my hair a while ago but they weren't strong enough to hold my hair up...so I kept them because I knew I could use them for something! 

  1. Cut out a circle the size of your lid
  2. Draw on your snowman or snow girl's face with markers ;)
  3. Then glue your face onto the lid
  4. take your Elmer's glue and glue around all of the facial features...black eyes and mouth pieces, nose.
  5. then pour on a good amount of glitter to cover the face, and then shake off all excess into a bowl (or something to catch the extra...reuse)
  6. do the same to your lid brim...glue around and then dip or roll it in the glitter...shake off excess
  7. Hot glue on your hair ties for hanging (or ribbon or whatever you'd like to hang your ornament with)

And there you have it! 
Adorable snowman and snow girl Christmas ornaments...make one for each member of your family!

Would love to hear what you think!

Converting to Crockpot

Crock pot Coversions

I came across this on Pinterest and just thought...HOW COOL!
Not sure about you all, but this could definitely make life a Good Amount easier around the kitchen, at least for me! But thought...I'd better share this!!
Just in case more of you are like me than I realize ;D

Ever Feel bound to eat out, because you will be gone on Sunday and don't have the time to prep, mix and cook dinner?? Or feel like you wont be able to have that super delicious meal you are craving because it requires you to be at home and you just wont be home that day!?

Well then, here is the answer to your long drawn out prayer--ha ha.  Crock-pot cooking time conversions from oven or stove to low or high setting of your beloved crock-pot. 

Have fun passing this one along!

Isn't this chart the coolest thing!?

Cinnamon Dough Ornaments (No Bake)

No-Bake Cinnamon Dough Ornaments --crafty-go-lucky.blogspot.com

So, I don't know about you, but I have always wanted to make those cute gingerbread man ornaments that looked like real cookies and smelled like cinnamon!

AND...Here they are, finally! 

My mom and sister came out in November to help with the kids and new baby, and we made a bunch! Just love how they turned out... Smell and all! Mmmm :) 

Smells like Christmas for sure!

These were all too EASY to make, by the way.
Work well for a family activity and/or as gifts to your friends, family or neighbors too!
I made some extra to gift with Visiting Teaching treats, although you could gift these alone :D

Here is the recipe we used...

Cinnamon Dough Ornaments:
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • 1/2 cup of cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup of very warm water

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.  Wash hands and then finish kneading with clean, dry hands.  If the dough is a little sticky dust your hands with a bit of flour and knead.   After a few minutes you will be left with amazing cinnamon ornament dough

Baby Jesus Ornament

What you'll Need to make your own:

Popsicle stick
small square piece of Fabric (~ 3 x 3 )
--I used a more rustic and woven kind, But any kind you like will do--
hot glue gun

The 'How-to':
  1. Cut off 1/3 to 1/2 of your Popsicle stick to be your baby Jesus
  2. Draw a simple face
  3. Cut your piece of fabric and warap around the baby--make sure a pointed end is above the baby's head, then tuck the bottom corner up (hot gluing as you go) and pull over the two outer corners to swaddle Him.
  4. Cut 12-15 (or more) small pieces of twine (this being a part of His manger bedding)
  5. Cut a strand of tine long enough to hang your ornament from the back and glue on.
Sweet & precious, Right?!

Wash Cloth Snowmen Ornaments

      So, I made these in 2008. 
Cannot believe its been that long, wow!

   I bought the 18 pack of wash cloths from Walmart (link above) and figured I would make a whole bunch and gift them! 
   So I did, and gave them to Siblings, and friends, people at church, etc. 

They all thought they were too cute too! 

Scroll below for the folding directions! 
Super easy...

But you will FIRST need:

A Wash Cloth
 (or another fabric for your nose, hats/earmuffs)
fabric scrap (For scarf)
googly eyes
hot glue gun
twine (for hanging)
 (or some other stuffing for inside your washcloth snowman)
twigs or straws (for your arms)

Waving Straw Arms

Once you have folded your snowman and made your hats, the rest is totally up to you! Get creative :)

What do you think of them!??

I also placed a couple on a mantle, loved them!
