Gooseberry Patch publications always contain a bit of a surprise and I was surprised to see this rather over-sized, cumbersome, spiral bound book contain a wealth of ideas including ideas for meals and gift giving.
An area that I thought was particularly helpful was a planner guide to help with planning holiday parties. There were also guides on specific techniques related to knitting, crocheting, and embroidering. One recipe that I believe will do the trick for me is the recipe for Fiesta Chick Gooseberry Patch publications always contain a bit of a surprise and I was surprised to see this rather over-sized, cumbersome, spiral bound book contain a wealth of ideas including ideas for meals and gift giving.
One recipe that I believe will do the trick for me is the recipe for Fiesta Chicken when our Elf returns next Christmas and says Feliz Navidad. Feb 05, Kelly H.

At first glance, this book is overwhelming to the point of being tacky and out of control.
And it is in some ways: there is so much going on it's hard to figure out what's something to make and what's window dressing, what's a pithy quote or anectdote and what's instructions or an idea. Most of it isn't something you'd find in an issue of Martha Stewart, but then, I don't think that's what it's going for. This is down home, ordinary people, middle America kind of stuff and I was surprised at how At first glance, this book is overwhelming to the point of being tacky and out of control.
This is down home, ordinary people, middle America kind of stuff and I was surprised at how much I liked it. I leafed through it just to see what on Earth was in there because it is incredibly disorganized or maybe just poorly organized but there's a method to the riot of insanity. And I found a little thing I kind of liked-a repurposed sweater made into a santa hat to top a tree. Since I'm not Christian I always feel a little weird with a really religious symbol like an angel or a star on top.
And before you say ti's a Christian holiday, it was a pagan holiday first. I celebrate as many holidays as there I can. I have a menorah I light and a couple of dredals. I have some Kwanza ornaments. I have some funny little Saturnalia decorations and I'm still trying to find a way to incorporate Ramadan. Above it all presides a large Buddha. I used to put him in a Santa hat because I think he had a good sense of humor and he's up there all year round in a serious manner, but my sister got really offended so I stopped doing that. But I digress. The toppers always topple over anyway because we get Noble Firs each year and they're kind of sparse up there.
A santa hat would be perfect on multiple levels and I like the idea of recycling an old garment. And then another silly but adorable idea--using a silver dog bowl to make a tree stand for a table top tree with dog ornaments.
Holiday Books: Crafts
Since I have a whole box of dog ornaments and we trade off every other year normal tree, dog tree, I found this very exciting. Maybe I can have both! There's a delicious looking spinach and walnut salad, a painted front doormat tastefully saying welcome with nothing cutesy in sight, and a way to package up a bulb of paperwhites for a nice gift. Before I knew it, I realized I actually kind of wanted to buy the book. And then I saw the picture.
I was thinking about one of my foster daughters, Kim, and how she would like this packaged up treat and then I saw the tag on it: To Kim, From Kelly.

Make a pint-sized Mayflower and give the kids a mini history lesson about the Pilgrims' transatlantic voyage. These too-cute vessels can even double as place cards for the big meal! Apple picking is one of the best parts of fall, and this paper craft only adds to the fun. Recycle cardboard tubes as the core, and top with red cupcake liners for the skin. Don't do all of the prep work yourself. Enlist the kids to rip up tissue paper and they'll gladly help out. Far-away family will love this adorable greeting card.
Use tiny hands to stamp out pumpkins or red apples , and have kids write a little hello. Painting on top of backyard leaves creates graphic negative space when you peel them away. Plus, it's an excuse to head outside and find the necessary supplies. Breakfast becomes kernels in this clever fall craft. A much easier version of the ever-popular paper quilling, this brightly colored pumpkin will look super cute hanging in a window. Allow each child to write down what they're thankful for, and then capture all of their positive thoughts into this pretty display.
Make a craft and wear it, too! This cute turkey headpiece is made from traced hands and construction paper. Scavenge your backyard for pine cones — they're the perfect body for a sweet little turkey. Dubbed by this blogger as a great last-minute craft, a "hand turkey" only requires a handprint and some finger paint. This scarecrow isn't so scary, thanks to his googly eyes and colorful hat. A mason jar makes an appearance in yet another DIY.
This time it's as a turkey — with colored popsicle sticks as its feathers. Stash crayons or pencils and pens in this mini pilgrim hat made from a black paper cup. This blogger and her young ones used bubble wrap to make each ear of corn look just like one you'd find in a field. With bulging bug eyes and vibrant plumes, these turkeys will look great as a holiday table topper. Using another paper plate because we know you could spare a few more , glue on tissue paper feathers with a paint brush.
