Today I am going to share with you the amazing Mini Maker Kits from Leisure Arts, Inc.. I was sent three to try out and have been having so much fun with them. There are a huge variety of them but the kits have what you need to make the project and they are smallish projects so they are pretty easy to complete in a reasonable amount of time. Therefore these kits are great for making your own holiday gifts as well as for gifting to those on your list who love making crafts. They truly have something for everyone from embroidery, knitting, macramé, paint pouring, felt crafts and more. And the best part is they come with everything you need to make the craft!

We have had a lovely vacation week this past week. Hazel was off from school and Steve took the week off as well. Unfortunately he got sick for the first part and missed our trip to Cape Cod to visit my parents. But today I had time to myself and started to work on a craft.

We had the pleasure of celebrating Thanksgiving a little early with my family this weekend. After a week of substituting in the kindergarten class at Hazel's school, I needed a good break. Therefore, I have not completed any crafts this week, however I want to share this fun embroidery book with you. This book takes me back to my childhood. I remember my mother having a huge book of iron on embroider patterns. We would get to go through it and pick a picture to try as we learned various stitches and more. It was so much fun and I want to share this experience with Hazel. Today I share Embroidered Woodland Creatures by Aimee Ray.

I remember going to the library as a young girl and taking out the little Beatrix Potter books. I loved her stories and the beautiful illustrations. This is what inspired me to decorate Hazel's nursery in the theme of Beatrix Potter. I made curtains and a crib skirt with Beatrix Potter themed fabrics. I didn't finish the quilt for Hazel, but gave it as a gift later. I also used some of the fabric to make clothes for Hazel when she was younger and used some on her nursery rhyme quilt that still is on her bed. She loves Beatrix Potter books as well. Therefore when I saw Stitching with Beatrix Potter: Stitch, Sew & Give 10 Adorable Projects Featuring Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck & Friends by Michele Hill.
