Every year around this time ~ I think a lot about those special people in my life and how I can show my appreciation with homespun touches in a heartfelt way.

To share appreciation to my creative friends across the miles I simply love to share how-to videos and free patterns….click here and scroll thru if you missed any ⇒ , or I share pretty wrappings in a special order, stamped with a pretty stamp.

To my friends and neighbors and those close by ~ it is a homemade sweet treat and a handmade ornament…always homespun and heartfelt for sure.

If you follow along with my timeline on Facebook….you may have seen Santa and Mrs Claus.  I created 72 to be exact for a Show and then for Customers.  These homespun ornaments shown in this post, along with Santa and Mrs Claus from FaceBook are created in Classic Chalk Art Style and will be available as a pattern in early 2019.  This specific set with the cookies and bundt cake will also include a third with a gingerbread cookie.

  2. Good morning, Amy! What a charming and beautiful design! I am always so happy to work with you, as you wave your magic brush to make the wood I cut into TREASURE! I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I am SO excited about what 2019 will bring!! While it is so much fun to own one’s own business, collaborations with our friends are just the BEST! They make it more fun and I think it is win/win/win/ for us all! <3 Love you and I wish you a Merry Christmas if we don't get a chance to talk! xo

    1. Love you too so much to look forward to in 2019…I’m ready! Merry Christmas!
