Santa brought me a . . .

Heat Press!!
Christmas came a bit early when my husband bought me a heat press.
I've wanted one for a while.
This is my first project - a personalized Santa bag for our grandson, Ethan.
I love how it turned out.
I made the bag from duck (canvas) to last many, many, years.
I'm hoping it brings fun memories for Ethan as he grows up and hopefully lasts for him to use it for his kids :)

Another 'Snow' Cute Gift Idea

You can never have too many snowman ideas :)
Here's a cute, quick, inexpensive gift .
I got the small red tub and white bath scrubbie from Dollar Tree.
The body wash (with label removed) is from Target.
I cut the snowman face and the snowflakes from vinyl using my Cricut.
I'm going to wrap it in cellophane, add a bow and cute gift tag for my neighbor.

Snowman Yard Stake Holiday Idea

While standing in line at a Dollar Tree store this summer, I looked over and saw some small solar powered yard lights.
Immediately I thought it looked like a snowman :)
After hanging on to the light all summer and fall, I got it out last week and made this.
I cut a small snowflake and the face from vinyl using my Cricut and applied them to the light.
A scrap of burlap was used for the scarf.
The vase is filled with florist foam soaked in water.
I stuck the light in the center and added fresh holiday greenery all around it.
Set him by a window to absorb sunshine and at night he will light up!
