How To: Make a Homemade Snow Globe

How To: Make a Homemade Snow Globe
As Kate so delicately alluded to earlier this week, I am somewhat of a holiday junkie. And Christmas is the holiday of all holidays for me. I decorated a week before Thanksgiving; yep, I’m one of those people. One of my most favorite holiday traditions as a child was our little family advent calendar and now that my kids are old enough to enjoy some fun and creative activities, I’ve filled up our little numbered stockings with slips of paper instead of candy. Well, slips of paper intermingled with candy. (There have been lots of questions about my advent calendar, and what I put into it. Snow globes are magical, whimsical, and fun. The first thing you need are jars, with nice snug lids. You can be creative with the items that go inside your snow globe, it’s just important that they are made of materials that won’t break down in water. Another really fun thing is to make your own little figurines with Sculpey Clay. You will create your scene on the underside of the jar lid.

Owl Granny Square Crochet Pattern I posted this pattern on my friend Kara's crochet blog, Petals to Picots, back in August in honor of her Granny Month. But I thought I would share it with you again and show you how the owl squares are being used! I made them into an owl bunting for my friend Shannon's owl-themed gender reveal party! It was first displayed over the party food table... But now it sits over her daughters crib! They are expecting their baby girl in early January 2013 :) Of course I would love to make an afghan with this square pattern, but I need more time and patience to take on that type of project right now :) If you are interested in making a blanket with these squares and want to alternate between the owl granny square and a basic granny square, you can follow a basic granny square pattern like THIS ONE and your squares will be the same size. Owl Granny Square Pattern Materials: - Vanna's Choice Yarn - Size G-6 (4.25 mm) Crochet Hook - Tapestry need - Small Black buttons for eyes Start by making your owl.
