The holidays are a perfect time to get crafty. Spending time with family and friends making decorations together can be a great excuse to try a new technique. Maybe needle felting is something you’ve always wanted to experiment with? Or cross-stitch? When I’m yearning to venture into new crafty territory I like to start with a kit that shows me how to make a small project. That way I know I’ll have everything I need and I won’t be overwhelmed.
Sound like fun? I’ve scouted 8 DIY ornament kits in a variety of craft mediums all of which are available on either Etsy or Amazon. Order one now to make with family, or get one as a gift to give to a creative friend (or to treat yourself!).

Hi there Abby,
I followed you when you had your “while she naps” blog and you had posted a recipe about delicious tuile cookies. I was hoping to make them again but the bookmark in my favorites is not opening. They were such a crowd pleaser and great for kids who have allergies. I hope you know what i am talking about. 😉
I think you’re amazing in all you have accomplished. Take care
