Keeping my Idle Hands Busy This Weekend...

This weekend, aside from picking up my sister's dog from the airport I am hoping to have some time to get a couple of projects done...I want to get a little more holiday decorating done, because I have an apartment tour planned especially for you, but I am also planning to do some sewing and some "baking" (read: mixing dough and freezing for later.) My gorgeous birthday present from my mom has come in the mail in time for me to wear it baking, cleaning, and puttering around this weekend! Excitement!

Hey, Mama...Want to see what you got me?!

Thank you so much! You have such lovely taste :)

Here are my planned crafts for the weekend...Steve says he wants to see more colour in our apartment, so some of these crafts are an effort to oblige him.

Embroidered Stocking from Purl Bee
These stockings will look soooo lovely nestled on our...entertainment unit.

Ruffled Pillow from Etsy Storque

I don't suppose I need to tell you I'll be making this in pink :)

Buttercup Bag from Made by Rae

I have been meaning to make this bag for about six months...what better excuse than Christmas, right?

Feather Tree from Martha Stewart

Also a project that would look fabulous in pink...

Laptop Tote from Sew Mama Sew

This simple project would be wonderful for anyone with a laptop... and isn't that everyone?

Enjoy your weekend, friends. Keep busy, and take some time to get in the festive spirit!

Suuuper cute apron!! And I can't wait to see how all your crafts turn out -- I am super in love with ruffles, so I imagine that pillow is going to be uber awesome :) (And that bag looks super cute too!) Here's to a productive (and fun!) weekend, I hope!
