As I was perusing blogs a few days ago I was just so struck by the Christmas fever. Despite having no time to devote to Christmas crafts (finals are next week), I spent the last two days staying up until the wee hours just too make some craft time. So the two bugs that bit me the most were the beautiful button wreaths I saw at Little Birds which lead me to Pixiegenne's as well, and the lovely little Christmas villages everyone seems to own. Every one but me...

So here are my answers to the Christmas Craft Fever...

My own handmade Christmas village in it's early construction fase:

Finto! I am so proud of myself:

(the snow is merino wool I had stashed for a spinning project)

And since I can't resist, individual photos of each little building I made:

I also went on to make 6 little button wreaths myself, though they are still lacking in ribbon...







So I love 'em, and now I just need to string them up...

I love your little dolls and button wreaths. Although I am a knitter I do enjoy other crafts and these are great ideas.. Can you post the pattern for the little dolls??? I think I can do the wreaths...

Love your ideas keep em coming

I have a really unrelated question. . .
I'm knitting the Letter Have It bag from S&B Nation for my roommate for christmas, and suddenly realized that the center panel is WAY bigger than the side panels. Is it just going to shrink up a lot or did I do something wrong? This is my first go at felting, so I'm a little out of my element. If you could let me know I would SO appreciate it. . .

You should be proud of yourself - what an adorable village! Something you'll surely enjoy displaying year after year. Hope your holiday crafting spree continues!

The villlage is really very creative. I love the "flowiness" of the snow.

Very impressive! The village is absolutely beautiful! I'm a little curious about the button wreaths...is there a backing? Or are they just glued on top of each other?

I love the village! And button wreaths -- how could I have never known about this idea? So cute!
