Super fun pompom key rings, free how-to from Wool and the Gang! (email sign up required to download instructions)

Also from Wool and the Gang, an adorable penguin embroidery pattern to customize your Christmas sweater! One can probably use it as a chart to knit the sweater itself. Might even work for crochet!

Need a bigger gift topper? These are made from paper plates! Aren’t they amazing? Can also double as wall-hanging! From Muslin & Merlot.

I think this is a brilliantly simple way to show off nice stones and agates, I would just be a slight bit nervous about the stones falling off the bail, as they’re just held by glue… But I’ve actually done the same with a small piece of amber, and it’s never fallen off, so I guess as long as one is using the right glue, this makes a nice quick gift! From Fall for DIY.

Can’t go wrong with a simple, cozy hat in neutral colours that will go with everything :) From Mama in a Stitch.

Can’t wait to show you all the things I’ve been making — in a few weeks, after I’ve given the gifts away :) Happy holiday crafting! :D

Just discovered on Pinterest! A free Wool and the Gang pattern! :D :D :D I’m a big fan of the sweater patterns by WATG, but almost all of their patterns are sold in kits, which I can’t really afford… so a free sweater pattern is very exciting! Now I just have to get myself some 12mm and 25mm needles. Sign up and download at WATG.

Build your own Lovebot and join the love invasion! :D Download the free Lego building plan here. Haven’t heard the story behind Lovebot? Here’s a bit of history from his website:

The Love Invasion began as a Toronto-based grassroots initiative, featuring the deployment of 100 hand-cast concrete Lovebot sculptures. Acting as a unique and meaningful social objects placed in the paths of pedestrians, each Lovebot sculpture was dedicated to a person or group that performed a powerful act of kindness in their community. The purpose: to illuminate the kindness and compassion in our city and, inspire more.”

You can read more about the Lovebot here :D and see where the Lovebots have been placed and their stories here.

I try to take a picture with one whenever I stumble upon one :D

Here’s me with a Lovebot at the Junction Summer Festival last year (and an avocado popsicle :D)
