Earlier this season, Mary wrote about holiday tea towels from Spoonflower and showcased some of her favourite designs. Well, while searching for Christmassy basset items on Etsy, I came across this pattern from Spoonflower. Oh my goodness—LOOK AT THE CUTENESS. Featuring tri-colour basset hounds, Christmas puddings, mistletoe, and more festive goodies, this fabric is amazingly adorable. If I knew how to sew, I’d be making myself a dress out of this fabric stat. Purchase this fabric from Spoonflower’s Etsy shop or directly from their website.
Tomorrow night Santa will be making his grand trip around the world and eating cookies that folks leave out for him. Since we elves adore sweet treats as well, Mrs. Claus always bakes us extra cookies to enjoy on Christmas Eve. In honour of tomorrow’s cookie extravaganza, I pulled together some cookie decorating videos that are truly fascinating. The amount of effort put into each cookie is astonishing, and watching these videos is actually kind of relaxing. Check ’em out below!
What cookies do you like to eat during the holidays? Let me know in the comments below!
In just a few short days, Santa is going to be flying around the world! In thinking about the big guy’s grand journey, I’ve got reindeer on my mind. My favorite reindeer is Raymond, but I also like decorative things that feature reindeer, such as this foil reindeer washi tape. This festive tape would be perfect for wrapping presents, decorating envelopes of Christmas cards, or adding a festive touch to your planner or wall calendar!
Can you believe there are only 3 days until Christmas? Yowsers! I’m excited, but I still have several things I need to do before I’m completely ready for December 25th.
