Another Giveaway and A Sugar Kissed Idea

Hello friends!
Christmas is coming so quickly and we just aren't ready to have
another Sugar Kissed Christmas behind us.

Another gift we'd love to give away this Christmas is a pair
of my knitted houseshoes!


 

I've made a pair in red and white!  So warm and cozy to
keep your feet warm during the cold winter months.
All you need to do is leave a comment on this post
and we will announce the winner Christmas Day!


 


 
We also want to share with you today a fun way to print and display vintage Christmas images!
I found this sweet card in my collection and new it would be perfect!






 
Print your vintage images on song sheet music for this cool effect!
I used a basic inkjet printer for printing.





 
I love how the image blended in to the sheet music so well!


 


 
Try this cool technique and see what you can create!

Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey and Twyla

Love the house shoes you made, Twyla. How sweet of you to do a Christmas giveaway.
The vintage image is adorable and what a cute idea to copy it onto sheet music.
Merry Christmas to the two crazy crafters :)

So cute and cozy!
I am in LOVE with the idea of printing card images (or others) onto vintage sheet music! I am definitely going to try that! Thank you SO much for the wonderful idea!

I really have to go looking for the pattern for those house shoes. My MIL used to make them for my husband. Since she passed last year and my husband had lots of holes in the last pair she made for him, I bought him a new pair on ebay last Christmas. But he already has a hole in one. While cleaning clutter recently, I found a tiny pair she had made for my son when he was a toddler. I had forgotten all about them. Of course, they will be saved for sentimental reasons.
The red and white pair you've made are just adorable and I'd love to win them.
Thanks for sharing your idea of printing an image on sheet music. It's a lovely effect. I'm filing it away with lots of wonderful shared ideas that I hope to try in the new year.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Oh..there are the twins to my slippers I am still enjoying....I am not entering as the ones I have are still keeping my feet very cozy... :)
I did want to asked a question(not because I am anxious) but,just because I am concerned ...did you ever mail the afghan you said you were going to? I am only asking because I wanted to make sure it wasn't lost...Also,I didn't want you thinking I wasn't appreciative by not responding with a Thank you reply.....if you haven't mailed it please,don't be worried about doing so...I was just wondering because our UPS driver might have left it else where.....Thank you!
I pray you girls have a very Merry Christmas.....blessings,Shelley

My Nanny used to knit me slippers like that when I was a kid but she has bad arthritis in her hands now and had to give up the knitting.

I love the look of the image printed on the song sheet!

I love the sheet music. My Guy is a professional musician so I love using sheet music with my crafts.

How delightfully warm and cozy that, as we "speak," I be wearing the greeny veriegateds that you knit for me a while back, those of which I still cherish and have since christened Miss Pitter and Miss Patter!

Wishing you and yours just the loveliest Christmas!

Hello Twyla and Lindsey,
Just popping in really to wish you both a very happy Christmas! Do enjoy yourselves.
Your blog has been so lovely this year, its so nice that you share everything with everyone!
Its been an absolute pleasure to view Lindseys work, and of course your gorgeous crocheting Twyla.
I'm sorry I haven't been over much. I've been busy delivering the 44 Blankets we have made together on SIBOL. It has given me such a lot of pleasure to hand-deliver the Blankets to Residents in Nursing Homes in the UK near to where I live. Knowing that our SIBOL project has been successful is just so rewarding to us all.

To actually be able to present these Elderly Residents has just been lovely.

Wishing you both a very happy time, Love sue and family x

Congratulations Twyla and Lindsey Sweeties...
I have so enjoyed blogging with you. You always have the neatest shares and the most beautiful crafts. It is a treasure each time I pop in. You two must be a real hoot together. I love it that you spend so much time together. Beautiful. Just beautiful.

Now these little slippers are definitely something I need. Being a diabetic it is so hard to find ones that feel good on my feet. They look so soft, and red is my favorite color. Oh please, enter me into your wonderful drawing of love.

May you both be richly blessed this CHRISTmas season. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry
