5 Little Monsters: November 2018

Christmas of Kindness Advent


I have shared a couple of Christmas countdown/advent ideas and I wanted to share one more idea today. One thing that can be really hard at Christmas time, especially for kids, is to avoid getting so caught up in presents and what you want to get for Christmas. It is so easy for it to become all about the gifts and less about the true meaning of Christmas.

As I was thinking about Christmas craft projects and ideas a couple of weeks ago I sat down and looked through some of my craft supplies to get some inspiration Sometimes looking through materials and supplies will spark an idea. It is one of my favorite ways to get project inspiration. Sometimes it will be a specific item that will give me an idea, sometimes the color of something, a material, or a combination of those. Sometimes when I feel like I have no creative ideas I like to go wander through a craft store and I am bound to find inspiration as I walk through the aisles.

Nativity Countdown to Christmas Chalkboard


A couple of days ago I shared a Countdown to Christmas chalkboard. I found several designs already made in Design Space and I chose one to put on my chalkboard. This design, that I am sharing today, is one that I came up with myself rather than one of the pre-designed options.

Las Flores Crocheted Cowl

 -Fairmount Fibers, North American Distributor of Manos del Uruguay yarns provided me with the yarn for this project.-


I recently had the opportunity to get my hands on some yarn that I was really excited to be a able to work with, and today I am going to share what I made. The yarn is from Manos del Uruguay, and I was really excited when they offered me some yarn for review, I have wanted to try their yarn ever since I heard of them.

Buffalo Check Believe Sign


A couple of months ago I ordered some red and black buffalo check vinyl from Cricut, thinking that it would be fun for Christmas projects. I am starting to work on more Christmas crafts and finally had the chance to pull it out and use it on something.

Be Grateful T-Shirt Design


Every November I start to think a lot about gratitude and all of the things I have to be grateful for. I know I am not the only one who feels this way since that is also when all of the gratitude posts start popping up on Facebook and Instagram.

I have shared a few Christmas crafts over the past couple of weeks but now that Halloween is past I am ready to really start with the Christmas crafting. Don't worry, there with be some Thanksgiving projects mixed in as well as some non-holiday posts, but get ready for lots of Christmas ideas over the next several weeks.

Easy Tote Bags with Cricut Iron On Designs

-This post includes affiliate links-


One of my favorite things when I need a quick project is to make something with iron on. I love to crochet, and I really enjoy sewing and painting and other crafts. But all of those things take time. Sometimes it feels really good to make something that you can make start to finish in only a few minutes. T-shirts and tote bags with iron on designs added to them are so quick and easy to make and there are so many ways you can use them. I make them for my kids, myself, gifts, holidays, and more.
