Traffic Jam Weekend #290

I’m so glad you’re here to party with us today on Traffic Jam Weekend! I hope you’ve had a great week so far, and that your weekend is relaxing! Before we get to this week’s features and party, I’d like to share the posts from my blog this week.

First up, is this free printable Christmas Wish List. I made this for you to print and give to friends and family, not just your kiddos. I’ll be giving a more comprehensive printable for them later. This you can use for people you’re close to, or people like you child’s teacher. It helps you get them gifts that they’ll actually use and like! There’s a section for wants, needs, things they’ll wear and read. Now that section may be for those you’re closer to. Then there’s a section for favs like: color, restaurant, store, candy, snack, drink, team, book, movie, and snack. That section is great for getting small items. Finally there’s a section for sizes. Who wants to return something because it doesn’t fit?

Next I made a tutorial for you to make just about any home/seasonal decor piece, personalized tumblers, and tons of crafts without a Cricut! Make all of the beautiful things you see on Life as a LEO Wife and Pinterest with only your printer and a pencil! Tying in with that is this post for DIY reversible faux books. You can make this with your Cricut or without. They are adorable and perfect for tiered-trays and vignettes. Save yourself a lot of work and time by having one set for two seasons or holidays!

Finally I made this adorable DIY fall centerpiece using items from Dollar Tree! I really love it. In the post I give you the step by step tutorial with pictures. I make my fancier fall decor in November for Thanksgiving. This farmhouse centerpiece fits perfectly in with my relaxed, cute early fall decor. If you love the farmhouse style you’ll love this. Heck, if you love any fall decor, you’ll love this!
