Well I had big plans for kicking off this week, but Mother Nature decided to kick out our power (boo!!), so I'm trying hurry to throw together the party on a borrowed internet connection. On the plus side, the rest of the week will be about a tasty holiday treat: Gingerbread Houses! I'll be showing more of the house above (which has a big secret surprise) and the super talented Meaghan from The Decorated Cookie will be coming over & sharing a special themed gingerbread house, so be sure to check things out here the next couple of days!
We had loads of great links last week, but I've got to keep today's post short & sweet, so here are just a few fun projects - I'll try to feature a few more (including the Handmade Holidays links) later in the week.
