# 1 Merry Christmassssssss
Topic: HOLIDAY FUN

 


 

Merry Christmas to all of my friends.

These two little mice were a gift from a friend named Linda Throckmorton that owns a fabric store in Machias Maine called Ginghams.
Linda  is a great crafter and quilter, and wanted me to share my little mice online.  

This font is so cute it is called Christmas on Crack  (LOVE IT)

I DID IT COLEEN, I DID ALL 25!!!!! WOOOHooooo.....I'm AWESOME!!

Now I'm going to treat myself to a little 80's Wham Christmas Song, and a juicy plump pomegranate to remind me of my home and family in California.

#2 I never get tired of PDS!
Topic: HOLIDAY FUN


I never get tired of Paper Dolls. I gave Rain the paperdoll set for the vintage stop animation Rudolph, and it had all of the misfits and Bumble.

I love working with paper, especially Japanese Ningyo paper dolls.

I can't wait for Valentine's! :}

Have a Great Christmas Eve.

# 5 A plate with ZERO CALORIES!
Topic: HOLIDAY FUN


Rain helped me make these little santas, and we had a blast!

We made a total of 19 and the fabric was 2.00, the fill 2.00 and the felt was .20 a color. We had embroidery floss, glue and thread on hand.

Holiday Crafting is a little corny, but so much fun!

 I think that my idea of a perfect Christmas would be having family over for a potluck of food and handmade crafts all on a long community "serve yourself" style table.

# 9 Fleece FUROSHIKI!
Topic: HOLIDAY FUN


This year Wal- Mart had these great fleece throws that made awesome FUROSHIKI WRAPPING. I have wrapped gifts Furoshiki style in the past in cotton. Polar fleece has a nice give (stretchy feel). You can pull it to wrap easier and it looks fuzzy and cozy. I think I will use these again next year.

#12 Doll House Pattern
Topic: HOLIDAY FUN

This is a 1/4 inch scale doll house pattern I posted on flickr.

1,2,3

I made mine out of foam board, and cardboard for the roof. I did a very quick job of it because I have been very busy at work. It is an easy pattern to glue together and beats the old milk carton Christmas Village because this dollhouse can be decorated inside and out.

Enjoy the pattern!

# 13 A Mexican Christmas
Topic: HOLIDAY FUN

Dec 12th was Our Lady of Guadalupe day. Although I'm not Mexican, my sister  and now my nephew attends the O.L.G. Catholic School in Hermosa Beach California. I can't remember when we didn't have a great time at O.L.G. church gatherings.  The priest at the time was Father Ignacious, and he wore buffalo sandals with toe rings, and had both of his ears pierced. He had no problem marrying people on the beach barefoot. Most of the jewelry and robes he wore were gifts from peasants in other countries so you can imagine how colorful he was in his hand woven Ecuadorian robes and copper jewelry.

California has a large Mexican population and I remember having friends invite me to LAS POSADAS . For several days we walked around caroling, then praying, with a pinata at the end of the night . They always served tamales and the traditional Mexican Hot Chocolate.  Catholic folk art has become very popular to collectors recently, especially carved santos.

CRAFTY CHICA Kathy Murillo always posts such great crafts on her site, I had to try her matchbox ornaments. They are so sweet, they look like little Mexican Retablos  :}

There are so many wonderful cultural traditions during the holidays, but my favorites by far are the Mexican Christmas traditions.

#14 Soft Trees
Topic: HOLIDAY FUN


Felt Mouse and Coleen posted these cute SOFT TREES from Little Birds Handmade on their blog and I just had to try them. They look kind of Kawaii because they are going to be for Rain. I like the feel of this plush curly  fabric, but is all over the place when you cut and sew it.

It is a sweet pattern. Thank You Little Birds Handmade.

# 22 Vintage Mobile Cards
Topic: HOLIDAY FUN


I purchased three of these vintage 1930's Mobile Christmas Cards on Ebay and two are still on the way. I thought that my friends would enjoy printing them.

Felt Mouse is doing Coleen's 25 posts until Christmas. So I decided to join the fun, but I have to catch up.
