Frontline, (aren't they all scary?) all the while I had a magazine on my lap. It is Christmas Ideas, a Better Homes and Gardens publication. It's filled with great ideas, free downloads and a bunch of inspiring decorating ideas. It's $5.99 price tag, was worth every penny. How many times have you bought a magazine, only to see the same old things, same ideas... This one is chock full of cool stuff.
First I downloaded this Christmas graphic, and printed it onto iron on transfer paper. I had a presewn pillowcase (Target), plugged in my iron and voila! I printed a second transfer for another project.
card stock, trimmed and scored them to look like they were framed. I used my glue gun to attach them to a grosgrain ribbon for a pretty accent, light enough to thumbtack to the wall. I also used the middle image and transferred it on a couple of flour sack towels.
I'd say I got my money's worth, wouldn't you? You can go to BHG.com/holidays and find these and many more great holiday ideas.
Entertaining my Guild this week, and making some changes around the house to welcome our guests at Thanksgiving.
"Tis the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial fire of charity in the heart."
