"Tis the Season to Hop" Day 2!

Welcome ! This is the “Tis the Season to Hop”! Day 2!!! I am so excited that you are here! I so enjoyed our first day of the Blog Hop and I hope you all did too! What fun! And some amazing projects that got my mind a spinning with ideas for Christmas! Keep reading for my giveaway!!!!

We will be hopping for three days from the 2nd through the 4th of Dec. Some of the ladies in the hop will offering Candy so look out for those neat gifts...also make sure you become my follower and comment all 3 days of the hop on all the participating blogs in order to win the Candy Elsa will be giving away on her blog.

We hope to inspire you to create and give homemade gifts and cards this year. You should have reached this blog by way of Tmika - http://www.scrapdaworld.blogspot.com/ but if not and you have arrived here by chance please go back to the beginning with Elsa at http://www.JustaFewDesigns.blogspot.com/)

Hope you enjoy my project!

My 2nd project is something lacy again...I guess I am on a crochet kick! I have been preparing for several craft shows in my area and have tried to come up with some "unusual" projects. I have created a White Christmas Altered lace Hat! The hat itself is a victorian lace pattern that was stiffened using Aileen's fabric stiffener and Draping. I altered it with tulle, pearl strand and hand crocheted flowers in Christmas White and Christmas Burgundy. I finished it off with leaves made with a deep green satin! I hope you enjoy this project as much as I enjoyed making it. I got the idea from my daughter's wedding decorations but instead of making the flowers out of paper I decided to try my crocheted flowers. ENJOY!

I am offering a "giveaway" after the pictures on this post...the only thing I ask is that you follow me and comment everyday after each post! Thanks and have a great weekend!

thanks for stopping by and please hop on to Emily at
