meet.make.champagne and prosecco bar.

DIY Champagne and Prosecco Bar  - perfect cocktail idea for a Christmas or New Years Party!

We are no strangers to prosecco and sparkling beverages in these parts, it is one of our favourite things to consume during the holiday season! Last December we enjoyed many white cranberry mimosas

Countdown to Christmas!

We are starting to get excited for the holidays around here.... it is hard to believe it is just over a month away! We are hoping to get some group crafting and baking in around here soon.

To get in the Christmas spirit Stephanie made a little snowman from this pattern Sarah from Repeat Crafter Me posted a few weeks ago. It was a quick little project and will make a great addition to a Christmas gift!

And just in case you were wondering....



What are you doing to get in the Christmas spirit?

meet.make.crochet moose.

Crafting and crocheting has been quiet in these parts as of late.... somehow life always steps up and gets in the way! Hopefully we will get back in the swing of things soon, just in time for Christmas! 

I knew I wanted to make a crochet animal for my friend Lindsay's little boy Jack, but was having trouble deciding on a pattern. When I came across the book This Moose Belongs To Me by Oliver Jeffers I knew I had to get it for Jack and make a moose to go with it!

Trick or Treat!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Wishing everyone a 'spooktacular' day filled with lots of fun! Nell is turning 3 months tomorrow and getting so big! We couldn't resist sharing this.... 

Happy Halloween from @meet.make.laugh.

We bought a pumpkin big and round
that lived the summer through
without an eye to look at things
and now it looks through two.

It used to be all dark inside 
when growing on the vine
but now it has a toothy smile
and face that's full of shine.

Last week Stephanie had to bring baked goods to work for a bake sale fundraiser, so we decided to get together to whip something up! It has been awhile since we have done any sort of baking.

meet.make.crochet bride luggage tag.

Crochet bride luggage tag free pattern

Today I have a fun little pattern to share with you! One of my closest friends recently got engaged, and decided she is going to have a destination wedding in Mexico. I wanted to send her a little something to commemorate the occasion, so I decided to make a luggage tag that she could attach to her wedding dress bag when she goes on the plane!

meet.make.baby blankets: part 5

So planning for my next baby blanket, I knew I didn't want to make anything too girly or boyish..

Whoa. Wait a second.. can you believe we're already at PART 5 of the blanket series??? Like I said, this was the season for baby blankets.

meet.make.thumbtack art.

DIY thumbtack wall art

Now that all the summer fun has settled, time to get back to business! The kiddies are back to school, season premieres are starting to roll-out, and work-smerk starts to ramp up again... To help motivate ourselves to get our heads back in the swing of things, we decided to indulge in a 'crafternoon' and make some wall art to spice up our offices.

The baby crafting continues....

Over the past while I have made a few new crocheted baby hats. I tried some different patterns, and loved them both! Will definitely be making them again.
