Hello friends! Time for another weekly wrap up of some great finds from around the web this week.
It has been a crazy week around here and I’m in great denial that Thanksgiving is next week! And December…come on!

great FABRIC: the fabricshoppe on etsy has long been one of my favorite little shops and I recently ordered some Christmasy fat quarters. I haven’t really paid much attention to the holiday fabric out this year and was pleasantly surprised to find some really cute stuff.

to whet your APPETITE: It’s time to start thinking Thanksgiving meals if you haven’t already. One of my go-to recipes is this one for sweet potatoes by the Pioneer Woman. I love it because it’s really not overly sweet like most of the other recipes are.

be NEAT (as in organized): A technology cabinet!?! When we redo our kitchen this is totally going to happen!

a TUTORIAL to do: This is a fantastic tutorial for a chapstick holder. Perfect for stockings and perfect for my little chick that has a bad habit of sucking on her bottom lip!

becoming more AWARE: These kinds of things are why I love Pinterest…a box of sunshine. Never would I think to create something like this! My husband has been working like a madman this week at work and it was fun to grab a few yellow colored things in the checkout line and pack up a little bag of sunshine for him.

something to SEW: have you ever been on spoonflower? It’s this great site where people submit their own fabric designs and then have them printed. Those of us uncreative fabric designers can then purchase their designs if so desired. I love this retrotastic camera camera bag print.

to TRIM my house with: I have a plant window above my kitchen sink and would love to make something like this to hang from it!

ILLUSTRATION to stitch: I would love to take this illustration and turn it into a real pillow. It would be lovely to have out around February…a lovely red print with a white chain stitch…ahh!

CUTE: I love these simple little hair flowers made from ric rac. Too cute.

Have a happy weekend!!!
