oh my goodness! I'm alive and doing stuff!!! and fray check

Made these cute little snack bags this week - one for the husband and one for my dad's birthday - who my daughter has nicknamed "pumpkin". She loved colouring the little patches and even made the "A" in "daddy"

I also whipped up a hot water bottle cozy. As the temperatures keep on dipping I like to be cozy warm :) and I LOVE having a hot water bottle to take to bed with me. warm and cozy!

If you want one of your own - email me! thecraftingfiend@gmail.com I'm thinking $15 without embroidery applique... different fabric available. (and a must really - I'm now out of cute pink deers. Although I could order more it just means you probably wouldn't have your cozy in time for Christmas). ps. you can facebook me as well
 Also made up these:

I even broke out the silhouette to make these mustache blocks to send to a friend - a group of us made 2 blocks each, mustache themed. to put a lap quilt together for a friend in need of some cheer.

and if you have little girls to shop for check out my dolls on etsy
ps. this is a note to me.... home made fray check.
4 parts water, 3 parts white school glue, and 1 part tacky glue (makes it slightly stretchy)

crafts with tot and christmas on the mind

First off I can't believe it's been like 3 weeks since i last posted... Life has been busy what can I say.

We had a no screen time for tots week here and so that meant a lot of crafting:

Had the babes pick what she liked out of the toy catalogue - and she got to do a cut and paste Christmas wish list - I am keeping it and having her do this every year by the way.

snowman craft - she loves the "fluffy" 

making a caterpillar with an egg carton box 

For chritsmas  crafting i have some ideas on my mind - Love these snowman face features

I think i'm going to do this craft with the babes - though maybe not pinecones since we don't have the pretty kind here

I want to make these with the babes too - but my husband HATES cinnamon... maybe they will have to be gifts...

maybe we'll make mice for ornaments instead...
Candy Cane Mice

I need some good ornament ideas for me to make - anyone want to link them or tell them - I'd LOVE to hear! 
Thanks for leaving a comment :)
