Here we are - the last day of Visions of Sugarplums! This has been so fun and what awesome projects from everyone. Another merry Visions of Sugarplums!
Handmade rocking horses, vintage rocking horses, $9000 rocking horses - I love them all! Thirty years ago, when Lauren was born, her grandpa made her a wooden rocking horse. It lives in our library and it's waiting patiently for another little girl to get big enough to ride it.
Yes, I said $9000! Dennis put his foot down, however, so I don't have an amazing rocking horse from England.
But, I do have this adorable rocking horse treat holder. And you can, too! I've got the pattern ready for you to download. I know you'll love it as much as I do.
You'll also love how easy it is to put together. Seriously...watch how here:
It can't be Christmas without Gingerbread Men! The shape of this one is adorable! It's a die from Paper Sweeties - one of our sponsors - thank you, Debbie! It comes with a lot of little cute accessories.
Do you wonder how I got this gingerbread man to look like a cookie? You will find a couple of tricks in the video:
I found Gingerbread Man cookies at World Market. The Cutting Cafe (thank you for sponsoring Visions of Sugarplums, Regina) had the perfect Gingerbread Man stamp set to create darling tags. My favorite part of this stamp set is all the different faces and the cute sentiments.
I used the same technique as above to create the gingerbread man.
I squealed when I came across a whole bunch of these gingerbread man cookie cutters! You could hear me, right? This is one of the Choux Box Christmas Kits. I have a couple of the Christmas Kits in my etsy store.
Did you see that adorable gingerbread man tag? They are available for you to download!
