I never knew that bottles and cans could become so many cute things. I know the penguins are my absolute favorite, but the soda can ornaments and the candle holder crafts are all so cute and fun looking. I want to do them all but there is so little time.

I love this book. Do you have any idea what it would cost to buy a book of crafts with all of these great projects in it? I looked thru it and found a lot I want to do now. The snowflake soaps caught my eye as did the red stocking soaps. What marvelous gifts to give to family and friends. Thanks for offering them.

I really enjoy taking scraps of wood and turning them into awesome Christmas decorations. Particularly fun signs that I can hang up or stick outside.
