A Winter Craft Round Up

Sophie shares a round up of some of her favorite winter crafts.

I am truly thankful to have the job I have.  Almost every one of my days in December will be filled with dozens upon dozens of smiling faces, laughing and crafting in their holiday finest.   There is nothing I enjoy more.

With this in mind I bring you some of my favorite winter crafts from my site.

Sweets and Treats

Candy Topiary Trees - These are great for decor.  If you want them for snacking, try using cut toothpicks or pasta instead of pins to hold the candy in place.
