SHOW & TELL: 2nd Annual Handmade Holiday Link Up

Handmade Holiday Link Up 2014

Welcome to homework's second annual Handmade Holiday link party. Throughout the year, the majority of link parties welcome crafts, diy, recipes, decor and other creative projects but often ask that you refrain from linking your shops. Now it's your turn to market your handmade shop or handmade item with the chance to be featured in a Holiday Gift Guide that I will put together from selected link ups.

CELEBRATIONS: A Touch of Fall from my Home

A touch of fall from my home - fall vignettes via homework |

These are just some snippets of fall from some of my projects or the styling for some of my projects. I love fall and when I went through my photos recently, I put together some of my favorite. Not everyday has to include a complicated craft or diy project to keep me inspired. Sometimes it’s something as simple as some peppercorns or moss.

UPCYCLING: Sweater Sleeve to Heating Pad

Upcycled Sweater to Heating Pad via homework - carolynshomework (5)

Now that the weather is dipping, it’s time to bust out those old sweaters. Not to wear… to cut up. Whoever first came up with the upcycle sweater idea was a genius. I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of sweater crafts. You can use the sleeves to cover cans and jars, make stockings and more.

GOOD TASTE: Sloppy Dogs {Kid Friendly Sloppy Joes}

Sloppy Dogs {Sloppy Joe Dogs} via homework - carolynshomework (7)I’ve been making Sloppy Joes like this since my son was little. I think it happened by accident when I was going to make Sloppy Joes but didn’t have any rolls or hamburger buns – but I did have some hot dog buns. That’s the night the Sloppy Dog was born in my house.
