Stained Glass Hearts

Here is a fun and fast little Valentine project to do with the kids... Tissue Paper Stained Glass Hearts. They are fun to make and will brighten up your window even on a gloomy winter day.

An added bonus, they can help stop kamikaze birds from flying into your window when they get spooked at the feeder. You can of course make these in different shapes throughout the year. Have fun!

Valentines Day Give-Away

EDIT: This Give-Away is over. Thanks to everyone that participated, and a special thank you to Juile, at Prairied Point Junction for providing the materials for the Give-Away!

We weren't planning on having a Valentines Day Give-Away, but then we received an offer from Julie over at Wool Felt Central (A.K.A. Prairie Point Junction) which we couldn't refuse. For starters, she has kindly offered all Wee Folk Art readers 20% off regularly priced merchandise on all orders. How awesome is that? All you have to do is click on their cute little button up in the right hand corner of our home page and you receive 20% off. Makes building our felt stash doable! Then she said... "We'd also be happy to support another Give-Away if you perhaps have something dreamed up for Valentines Day. I bet you have tons of great ideas. You gals amaze me!"

Well, with that offer, what else could we do? So last night we "dreamed up" something special for Valentine's Day. One easy way to herald in any Holiday, is to simply set the table with Holiday themed napkins and napkin rings. Here are our go-to napkins... the old...Read more

Gnome Snowflake Garland

Let's face it. It's the little things we do that make a house a home. And when we are in tune with nature, our homes often reflect the "goings on" outside. That certainly is one of the reasons houses have windows... so we feel the connection with the out-of-doors. Well, the mistress of our Gnome Home... Britta, is certainly in tune with nature, and makes changes in her home to reflect the changing seasons. And just like me, wanted a snowflake garland to dress up her house for winter.

If you would like to learn how to make your own snowflake garland to share with your gnome friends or to add a festive touch to a doll house, the directions for the Gnome Snowflakes can be found HERE or with our FREE Patterns. Enjoy!

Chicken and Rice Soup

Remember... If you would like to share your favorite chicken soup recipe with our readers, just email us the recipe, along with a little something about the soup, your website, if you have one, and a pic is available. It's always so much fun to "swap" recipes with friends!

Sue, over at Happy Healthy Cooking, shared her favorite go-to chicken soup recipe with us. For those of you that are trying to reduce the amount of sodium in your diet, this soup has far less than our rather salty offering! I love the addition of the wild rice. She also uses rosemary and thyme to add sublte flavor to her soup. I can't wait to give this a try. Make sure you stop in at Sue's blog and check out all her yummy looking recipes. Thanks again, Sue!

BTW... We are in the process of organizing our recipes. Hopefully, over the next couple of weeks, they will be in a much easier to use format.... I hope, I hope :)

Here is my go-to...Read more
