Cotton Pickin' Cute!

I simply love visiting blogs this time of year to find the most wonderful Christmas projects to make and display in my craft room. Imagine my delight at coming across these two adorable felt holiday shakers at  Cotton Pickin' Fun

Oh my gosh! Holly's patterns charm me no end with their simplicity of construction and charming circle features. I love the tilted hats and stripy stick on Mr. Snowman.

Holly shares easy to follow directions and tips to make your own shakers Cute as Can Be. I love the expressions on her frosty couple!

And just look at the cute seam down the middle of her Gingerbread Man Trinket Box. I love that detail!

I made her adorable Snowman Trinket Box. I love the dripping icicles.

Thank you Holly for so generously sharing your patterns!

I watched the movie Miss Potter the other night and couldn't help but think of you! All those craftroom characters with their little parties and personalities! Miss Potter talks to her Peter Rabbit and he hops around on her E!

Hi Elizabeth,
How do I copy the patterns on your blog? I'm not real tech savvy and can't figure it out so far.

Hello Elizabeth,
My daughter and I have been following your blog for a few years now, we just love it! I noticed my daughter Michele looking at your blog more lately! I know she really loves your shadowbox drawer Christmas wall hanging... She also wants to make the clay snowman, so we will be tempting to make some this weekend. Thank you for your inspiration and for sharing your patterns <3
we are going through really hard times as you can see on our blog, and we appreciate people like you that make cheerful things to put a smile on ones face <3

I love the little circle cheeks! I've got a thing for anything little and round. Love the cheery big window in your craft room!

Thanks for coming by yesterday! I too will miss my views but similar veiws will still be seen every time I go walking at my new house- if it will be my new house. We're hoping to find out this week.

Such cuties, Elizabeth. Glad you have been having fun visiting and creating. I can't wait to check out Holly's blog. Thanks for letting us know.

Holly said...

You did a wonderful job, Elizabeth! They are so adorable! I love the real looking leaves that you used on the hats. You are such an inspiration to me and I am glad to give back to this wonderful community of very talented women! Have a wonderful and crafty day and boy am I jealous of RetroSandie-snow day already!! Holly
ps I can't wait to make one of your paperclay snowmen heads!

Hi Elizabeth!
Thanks so much for visiting and commenting on my blog. :)
And thank you for the heads up and sharing Holly's darling holiday shaker patterns with us, so very charming.
(I must admit to being unable to process that another year is about to come to a close ALREADY!)

Happy crafty weekend to you,
