It's Wednesday, and I want to make these...

Good morning, friends.
Slowly but surely, I'm moving into Christmas mode. I've been feeling a bit uninspired, so last night I thought I'd poke around in my Pinterest pins and see what happened. Next thing you know {bam!} - I'm in the mood! I even went so far as to change my blog banner to fit the season. :o)

Today I'm sharing five items that are on the top of my list to put together this year.

These cute treat holders found here.

These adorable little treat boxes found here.

I can't wait to make this party mix with those cute little Santa hats! Seen here.

Carrie and I have made something similar for several years, but I love
that these are done with round pretzels and Hershey's kisses. Seen here.

I'll be baking little loaves of bread to give to friends, and I love this idea for
wrapping: punched heart shapes (I plan to use my snowflake punch) ironed
between sheets of waxed paper. Seen here.

So, how about you?
Do you have some new things to try this year?
Where do you draw your inspiration from?

Just looking at all the things you want to do makes me tired. My creative mojo is in hibernation mode for the winter I think!

Ok, you've gone and inspired me too! I had to get my pin on. I love how Pinterest revives great ideas that people blogged about years ago!!! I think I'm making that Santa Hat mix for my daughter's teacher....just because she's so great.

I have to confess to feeling completely uninspired right now ...

Oh yes - I have become completely addicted to pinterest again!! I'm blaming it on my iPhone :) I must look you up as I don't think I'm following you?!
I like the photo of the wrapping :)

The wax paper wrapping is gorgeous and those Santa and Mrs Claus outfits are too cute. I'm making pillow case dresses this week (finally!) but apart from cards nothing for Christmas yet.

The blog header is gorgeous! I've found everyone's holiday posts inspiring. I bought an artificial tree and hope to put it up this weekend.

Our house is decorated, and my cards are nearly completed, but I've yet to make a baking list. These are inspiring. I can't remember the last time I changed my blog header---shame on me.

Your crafting motivation continually astounds me - I am in complete wind down mode ... and it's very hot - a sure killer of motivation!

I just don't know where you find the time for all that you do. :) Those pretzel chocolate things look yummy. Sad to say no Christmas crafting going on here this year.
