Final Post and New Blogs

This will be the final post for Common Threads.  

We've had a lot of fun, but in the new year we've decided to spread our wings  by creating a few new blogs.  Please check out Mandi's new blog Make it Dear and Jessi & Cassie's new venture Sparrows and Arrows.

We will be leaving up Common Threads, so you'll still have access to the DIY's and links we've posted over the last year.

Hope you'll all join in our new projects and thanks for the memories :)

Happy 2011 and a little pom-pom love!

Hello, did you all have a happy Christmas and super New Years? We brought 2011 in at home with a few friends and family, good food, games and champagne as the ball dropped! Now that all of the holiday fun and New Years dust is settling have you set any resolutions or goals for yourself for this year? I would definitely like to find more time to make things and here are some photos of a quick little accessory I made up to wear to Jason's families Christmas day dinner.

I used this tutorial to make the pom-pom and hot glued
an alligator clip to the back.

I thought they where cute and festive and want to make yellow ones next! What kind of little projects have you been working on lately? Leave me a link here if you like, I would love too see what everyone has been up to!

Monster Stuffie

I picked up this little guy recently at an adorable handmade shop in Napanee called Frayed Around the Edges! His name is Sherman and his tag says he is a "Card carrying Member of the Broken-Hearted Club". I think he is super cute and he is sooo soft and the perfect size for my youngest son, Caden.

I am so happy when I find local shops that carry handmade! Where do you like to shop in your area?

Hope you all had a very merry Christmas morning and Santa made it to your house with lots of goodies! We have just stayed around the house, opened presents with the two little ones and now are off to make the rounds visiting friends and family. We will be taking a little blogging break for a few days to enjoy some family time so hope your holidays are warm and happy!
