  1. Just lovely! Thanks for these ideas. Simple crafts are definitely the way to go in my world. Last year for Christmas we made a “Joy to the World” quilt for our back door out of wrapping paper.

  2. Oh, girl, you are so talented. I love how you make all things lovelier–and make us feel like we can do the same! Can you come to my house, pretty please? 🙂

  3. Those are all so fun and pretty!!! I love the pretty simple part too…that way I don’t get too stressed while trying to make something special with our kiddos. I think I am going to try the garland you had i the first picture. I never thought of tracing around my cookie cutters for paper cut outs! What a great idea. Thanks!!! 😀

    Your ideas always inspire me to try something new, Melissa. Thank you!
