I've been doing a little thinking . . .

and I thought that I might start doing a little type of Christmas crafting tutorial on the blog - I'm thinking maybe weekly. What do you guys think? Now, if you don't know my motto, let me give it to you - "I'm all about it being made at home, I just don't want it looking 'Home Made'!!" I hope you all know what I mean by this - I hate some 80's looking crafts!! When you make something it should look like you bought it at a high-end store! But this is only MY theory - some of you might want it to look like YOU made it! I love people asking me - "Did I make it" because they are just not sure - OR - I really love the people who assume I made it {because it looks so good} and I actually did pay too much for it at a high end store!! My biggest secret on creating things - you must know what you can do. Of course you are not going to know if you don't just try!! I, personally know my limits, that is why I do, sometimes, buy some ridiculous, overly-priced item - either I can make something comparable - or I can't. It's that simple.

With that said, I figured I can let some of my "Secrets" out of the bag and show you guys how to make some great things for the holidays. If I get a lot of responses/comments, I might continue this after the holidays. I was thinking maybe about 4 to 6 projects for this upcoming holiday season. Not only will I give the how to's, I will have easy pictures to guide you!! It couldn't get any easier!! I will probably post on a Monday - that will give me the weekend to get it completed and I can also post where to get all the materials {and if they are on sale anywhere - that will give the week to get all the stuff!} I have already compiled a list of things that I can possible make. I am talking about simple, easy stuff that anybody can do!! I will not be using the sewing machine, so some of you stop shaking your head and thinking you can't do this!! So, what do you say - anybody interested??

LOVE LOVE LOVE The idea but totally like having you make something for me instead. on my own it would look ghetto made which is worse than looking home made. Dont you love me anymore:)

Ahhh - I love it. I have been waiting 5 yrs for you to show me how to make something -- yet my home is FILLED full of Kim Wheeler specialties. I say that if we do a project of yours, we need to send you pictures of OUR finished product! HA!!
