Christmas is just around the corner and it’s my favorite holiday to decorate for, so I decided to craft up a few extra decorations to add to my home this year. Though a little time consuming, these whimsical trees are pretty easy and fun to put together.

I love whales, though I have never seen one in my life. I love reading, too. Thus, why not combine both whales and reading together and create a whale bookmark? I am using felt fabric for my whale because felt is easy to work with. Now don’t worry about the templates because here you will make your own felt templates.
Here’s a cute little snowman ornament to make for your Christmas tree. Make him just like the tutorial, or simply make the body as directed, and then create your own custom look for your snowman–either way, he’ll help you to have a jolly holiday!
Needle felting is a fun and easy craft project that requires little cleanup and minimal equipment. It can be used to create large and elaborate projects, or small home decorations. This tiny jack-o-lantern is a great beginner’s project.
Overall, I’m pretty terrified of cooking. There’s the whole idea of undercooking something and killing the person you love while trying to nourish them, there’s the idea of overcooking something and watching that same person choke down your disgusting, love-filled meal (maybe try not to cook so much love into it next time?), there’s the idea of setting off your smoke alarm every time you try to cook meat…which I do. There’s a lot of ways to fail. I can’t cook chicken without opening all my windows and doors to let all of the smoke out of my pint-sized apartment with an attention-starved smoke detector. But, in spite of all these terrifying cooking side effects, I’ve still gotta do it. Someone has to feed my perpetually hungry boyfriend, then give my cat the scraps.
