This is so awesome! It's a personalized video message from Santa to your child and it's free! I just did one for each of my children it's just adorable! The boys are gonna freak when they see it. All you do is just add some info about your child like: what toy he/she wants, where they live, his/her name, color of eyes/hair, and a few other things. You download a picture too which goes into the "nice" book. He'll even say your child's name if it is a common one. They didn't say my son Trysten's name because it is spelled differently, but they did say my son Gavin's name. Anyway, go HERE to try it out! It doesn't take long and they don't take any of your personal info or anything. They do ask for your name and email at the end but I just put my first name in and it worked. If you want to see what it's like first for HERE to check out my oldest son's video.

I might start selling these down the road, they are so fun to make! I have some other cute ideas to make with diapers too, I will post those when I find the time to actually make them! :)

Paper Loop Wreath: This classic wreath can bring a splash of fall color to your door. It is simple to make and can easily be customized to match your decor.
To make this wreath, you will need:

The boys and I made these cute bat puppets together the other day. They had a lot of fun and were pretty proud of them. We just used black socks, felt, yarn, and to make the wings not so flimsy I used foam sheets. Pretty easy and pretty fun. They kept them occupied for rest of the afternoon at least. :)

I found this cute idea today on Roots and Wings Co. I might have to try it out this year. I bet the kids would have fun with this one too. I love her idea how she has the leaves falling onto the ground with the things they are thankful for. Or you could start with a bare tree and fill the tree full with thankful leaves too.

Here is a cute idea from Mama Thompson. I just think it's adorable! If you are not a sewer, you can just by a cheapo bag from Michaels and put your kids cute little feet on that. I was actually thinking about just putting their feet on black paper and framing it. I can stick it on my entryway table for all to see! If I ever get around to making this I will post a picture of it!

File Folder Fun
The awesomest thing about these is that they come in color so you don't have to color them yourself! That makes it totally worth it for me. :)

I don't. But I wish I did because you can download a free knitting e-book on favecrafts.com! It has 24 easy knitting patterns in it from scarves, to baby sweaters, toys, and hats. Go download it now! And if you really want to you can make me something out of it! ;) Knitting is probably something I will never learn how to do. I have tried to learn but since I am left handed no one can figure out how to teach me! Knitting e-book
