Through The Candy Cane Forest

One of my favorite Christmas movies is "Elf".  It's just plain fun! So if you ever find the need to pass through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, you can make your own!


Start by cutting 1" or so lengths of Whisker Graphic's Divine Twine. I used Cherry (red & white), Holiday (green & red) and Peppermint (pink & red).

Then, get out your good old white glue. I poured a small amount into a cup and dipped my fingers right in!

Pull a cut length of the twine through your fingers, and lay it on the waxed paper to dry for just a few seconds.

Using a small dowel or the "wrong"end of a small paintbrush, curl one end of the twine half way around it.

Then let dry completely. When they are dry, peel them up and cut off any stray "hair" from both ends, plus any extra dried glue.

They are pretty quick to make--it took me about 20 minutes to make 4 dozen! For more clever ideas using Divine Twine, check out their blog HERE!

December In My Happy Place

Month after month I am privileged to continue my consignor-ship at the store where I have been selling my vintage wares for over eight years now--Room With A Past! Here's a peek at what I started with last weekend:

There's still some goodies left! You can see them at our fabulous New Year's Day sale, when everything holiday-related is half off! Come in your jammies and grab a plate to nosh on our full brunch! You can also strike a "deal with the dealers" for even more bargains! For more info, check out the email reminder you'll be getting soon in your inbox, or sign up here!
