Christmas Craft: Easy White Cookie-Cutter Clay Ornaments

It's been a whole week since I last posted...where has the time gone? Between wrapping presents, preparing for our holiday party this weekend and dealing with computer troubles, the time has flown by. 

...but I also managed to complete one last Christmas craft, an easy one that I hope you'll try in a spare 30 minutes: white, metallic-edged clay ornaments shaped from holiday cookie cutters.

Decking Our Halls for Christmas

In the past three days, it has snowed twice (!). The freshly-fallen snow has created an ideal backdrop for pictures I've been intending to take and share of our holiday decorations. These pictures are so special, because they represent the first Christmas we're celebrating in our house.

I'm so excited to share them with you!

My Fave Out-of-the-Ordinary Holiday Movies

How do you get into the holiday spirit? One of the most popular, never-fail ways to turn any Scrooge into Buddy the Elf is with classic holiday films. But, we've all seen "It's a Wonderful Life" and "A Charlie Brown Christmas" enough to recite them, right?

Today, I'm sharing 10 out-of-the-ordinary films that--while not typical "holiday" films--have each have a hearty dose of Christmas cheer.

Christmas Craft: Everlasting Peace & Joy Boxwood Signs

Holiday Faux Boxwood Signs (via Meet Me in Philadelphia)
Every Christmas, one of the most popular and meaningful messages in the Christmas cards I receive is this: peace and joy. The language of the holidays is especially hopeful, so I imagined up a surprisingly quick, affordable Christmas craft that celebrates these happy and merry messages.

Take a look at how I made them after the jump!

The Gnomes Book of Christmas Crafts

Gnomes Book of Christmas Crafts_Meet Me in Philadelphia
The holiday season is so special to me, in part, because it's the one time of year when I feel like a kid again. Do you know the feeling? Hanging nostalgic ornaments or spending time with relatives...all the festivities remind me of how magical the season has felt to me since I was a kid.

Recently I found a copy of The Gnomes Book of Christmas Crafts and it filled me with childlike delight. Let me tell you all about it!
