Little Drummer Boy Gift Tag::Bloggers Best 12 Days of Christmas

Little-Drummer-Boy-Printable-Gift-Tag

Hello there! I’m Laura from Inspiration for Moms and I am thrilled to be hanging with the Crafting Chicks today! I’m sharing with you an easy gift printable for the theme of twelve drummers drumming. When I think of drummers, I am reminded of one of my favorite Christmas songs…The Little Drummer Boy. So I took that song and combined it with a classic drummer boy silhouette to make some darling gift tags. These tags are a great way to add a little traditional Christmas to your special gifts. And they’re perfect if you’re up at 2 am wrapping those last minute gifts and need some very creative tags. See there, I gotcha covered! To print your own gift tags, just click on the image below and save to your computer. (When you’re ready to print, select 8×10 and two tags should easily fit on one piece of card stock.) If you’re looking for a few more Christmas crafts, my [Read More…]

Decadent Triple Chocolate Grasshopper Cookies::Bloggers Best 12 Days of Christmas

Triple-chocolate-grasshopper-cookies-1v2

Hi! My name is Emily and I blog all the things (but mostly food) over at is this REALLY my life?. I love, love, LOVE being a part of any project the Crafting Chicks put together. These gals are amazingly talented and absolutely beautiful inside and out. When they asked if I’d be interested in participating in this year’s Bloggers’ Best: 12 Days of Christmas Edition, I was like, heck YES! It’s like being asked if I would mind a lifetime supply of Diet Coke. And a mini fridge to go with it. I was lucky enough to snag Day 10, also known as “Lords a Leaping Day.” You may not think this the best day for a foodie when “Maids a Milking” (gourmet hot cocoa?), “Partridge in a Pear Tree” (pear tart?) or “Geese a Laying” (breakfast quiche?) would work so much better. But one of my favorite flavors is “grasshopper”—you know, that absolutely divine combination of mint and [Read More…]

Simple-Scented-Milk-Bath-3.1-1024x682

Hi everyone! It’s Leanne from Organize and Decorate Everything. I’m so happy to be here to share with you my gift idea for Eight Maids a Milking. I like to pamper myself when I can and I like to think of fun ways to pamper my friends. What better way than to give them something relaxing and soothing for the bath. Winter can be harsh on your skin and this Simple Homemade Milk Bath is the perfect solution. What You Need: 1 1/2 cup Whole Powdered Milk 1/2 cup Cornstarch 1/2 cup Baking Soda Essential Oils (about 10 drops) What could be easier than 4 ingredients? The milk moisturizes your skin, the cornstarch soothes irritation, and the baking soda softens. The essential oils add a wonderful scent. Mix the ingredients together in a large bowl. To fill 2 wide mouth Mason jars and have a little left over for myself I used 4 1/2 cups of milk, 1 1/2 cups [Read More…]

Hello, friends! I’m Kierste, the girl behind the blog Simply Kierste, and I’m delighted to be here! I adore the Crafting Chicks, and it’s so fun for me to be a part of the 12 Days of Christmas series, and share a really fun, easy, and inexpensive gift idea! We live far away from all of our family–most of them live thousands of miles away, and my sister is the closest at twelve hours away. We don’t get to see them as often as we would like, but it’s important to me that we do things to keep connected, and to help my kids know their family. I thought it would be fun to make a set of family lacing cards for my kids for Christmas a couple of years ago, and they LOVE them. I made a card for each of our siblings, and their families, and it’s so fun to have their cute faces so often. It’s a [Read More…]
