A Crafty Soiree #12

Welcome to the 12th A Crafty Soiree! Next Thursday is Thanksgiving in the US, can you believe it?! I know a lot us will be visitng friends and family over the next couple of months for holiday gatherings. Today I'd like to share three projects I think would make great hostess gifts, just a little something somthing to take along to show how much you appreciate your host's friendship and kindness. Cause I know most of you are crafty bloggers, that means most of your friends also know it to! So it's kinda expected that we'll show up with something fun and handmade, right:)
The first is perfect to bring along to the big turkey dinner, or any fall time gathering, this cute Burlap Pin Cushion is sure to appreciated.
Then as December begins, so do the cookie exchanges and holiday open houses! I love how this clever twist on a "present"! Craftily Ever After shares the how-to scoop on this $2 gift!
While not specifically made as a gift, I thought these Stella and Dot Knock Offs from Life Inside a Downtown Farmhouse would be perfect for so many of our girlfriends. After all, what girl doesn't love a new pretty?

Ladies, for being our features this week, we're happy to offer you our special Crafty Soiree Ribbon! It's yours to proudly display! Don't forget to check out today's Crafty Soiree post at Yesterday on Tuesday, we both pick three participants to feature each week so you might have been featured by Malia. But you'll have to visit her to find out!
