What a Great Idea Wednesday

I was recently talking to one of the children in my neighborhood and the subject of holidays came up. She knew that some of her favorite holidays were just around the corner and we were discussing their order and what she liked about them.  This made me realize that Christmas would be here before I knew it.  As I like to make gifts this means I need to get busy.  

I figured I would not be the only one looking for homemade gift ideas, so I decided to start What a Great Idea Wednesdays.  Every Wednesday I will post a fun gift idea, recipe or helpful tip.  If you have suggestions email me.  I'd love to include them.  

For our first What a Great Idea Wednesday I found these fun hot pads over at Quilt Expressions. I thought the addition of a spatula and favorite recipe was a great idea.  I can't wait to make a some for a few people on my Christmas list.  If this sounds like a great idea to you too; you can find the tutorial here .
Make sure you check out the rest of their site.  It is full of great information and useful tutorials.

  6. I'm really looking forward to these posts! Love this idea! I do believe that I will make one this weekend. I have a dear neighbor that her birthday falls on October 10th and she loves to bake. This will be perfect for her. Thanks again!
