My Favorite Christmas Present


Most awesome present ever!

I totally cheated on this one, and picked it out myself, had the store wrap it, and told the kids they bought me a present when I got home.* How could a book called The Big-Ass Book of Crafts go wrong? Ok, the kids were a bit appalled that they bought me a book with a bad word in the title, but they got over it, since they didn’t actually have to lay out any cash, ;).

I want to make approximately 20 crafts in this book RIGHT NOW, but since I will have to gather supplies first, I have to content myself with making a list of the crafts I want to do as soon as possible.

Lace Glass Plates
Drag Art
3-D Blossom Box
Art Switch Plates
Fabric-Covered Salt and Pepper Shakers
Kid Art Napkins
Bathroom Tile Coasters
Seashell Encrusted Bookends
Kitchen Art Tray
Bubble Stationary
Tin Can Luminaries
Rolled Magazine Bowl and Basket

I could go on, but this is probably enough to keep me busy for a while. Also, I couldn’t help but notice that there is a second book in the series, and a home decor book by the same author, so the crafts will never end! Hooray!

Pictures to come, no doubt until everyone is sick of them.

* What, did you think I was going to say something about my kids’ love or something sentimental like that? No, not when there are crafts to talk about!

  1. Don’t feel bad – I cheat all the time when it comes to my own presents. I bought every single gift I received this year myself. Yeah, it can be a bummer to not get any surprises but at least I know: I like it, I need it and it fits! Then, to make sure I got nicely wrapped packages I made my husband stop at the Habitat for Humanity gift wrapping kiosk and pay to have them wrapped. Whatever works 🙂

    Looking forward to seeing some of your craft ideas. Before I start any new projects I need to get my couch cushions done. Ugh!
