Saturday Link List: the Christmas edition

Welcome to the Christmas edition of my weekly link list!  These holiday editions of my link lists have been well received so I'm continuing to do them as it's appropriate.  All month I've been putting together a Christmas DIY 2011 board on Pintrest.  You can click on that link to see the full set of items.  It includes recipes, costumes, decorations, and more.  I'm sure that it's not a surprise that it was not hard to find awesome Christmas DIY projects!  This board is bursting with more than 50 pins.  I'll highlight a few of my favorites here.

I have to promote my Christmas hubs, which I did include there.  My holiday tutorial hubs have done well so I've continued to write them.  I had only planned to write two for Christmas, but I got inspired to write a button one as well.
As always, if you missed an article of mine when I originally posted it on my blog, click here!

Here are just a few other links that I love from my board.

There are several people who read this regularly who love to journal on a daily basis.  This is for you!

I adore little nativity sets and would love to purchase or make one at some point.  That didn't happen this year, but it may be a project for next year.  This paper one is so cute.  You can print a black and white one to decorate any way that you wish.

Judy wrote a post with some awesome suggestions for easy wrapping.  I love purchasing and making Christmas presents but I don't love wrapping them.  I'm always looking for easy tips.  Thanks Judy!

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has trouble throwing away Christmas cards.  But what to do with them?  Michelle has some great suggestions.

This idea is too awesome!  I keep coming back to this link.  I've seen some similar ideas with muffin tins that have magnets to hide the little cups that are holding the trinkets for the different days.  So much fun!  Again, I didn't make an advent calendar this year, but maybe I will next year.

Alicia has some great suggestions for wrapping presents using a paper bag and on hand supplies such as Sharpies.  I love wrapping supplies that I don't have to purchase.

Of course I had to include at least one recipe here!  Natalie created her very own gingerbread crepes with eggnog whipped cream.  I love all sorts of crepes and know that many people will enjoy this special holiday version.

Again, you can check out the board for the complete set.  Have fun with all of your crafty Christmas endeavors this year!
