Tout It Tuesday - #35

Happy Tuesday!

Christmas is fast approaching and we am trying to get in the of things.  We just got our tree up on Saturday and got most of our decorations up in the living room on Sunday. Still have the outside stuff and the dining room (it still looks a lot like Thanksgiving in there) to go. I have also been working on several cute projects that I will be sharing in the coming days. 
How are you all coming with your decorating?  Better than us I hope. It seems like each day should have an extra couple of hours at this time of year doesn't it?

Now that you are caught up with what we have been up to, it is time for this week's features.

Julie from Being Home shared her Paper Mache Snow Reindeer. I think this is an beautiful transformation.

Tim from Marty's Musings shows how to patch a wall. We so need this since we have a corner that has been waiting for me to finihs up the repair for over a year. I am so excited to try the wet sponge technique since the mess of sanding has made me put it off

Tagana Rose shared how you can make your own sour cream. We never seem to have sour cream in the house when we neeed it so this will be a great thing for us.

Brandy from The Moody Fashionista uses bubble wrap to create an advent calendar. I am not sure I could only pop one a day since I love popping bubble wrap.

This week's Fan Fav comes from Kim at Reposhture Studios. She used a drop cloth and other bits and bobs to create a beautiful holiday swag.  I love how versatile drop cloths are!!

Before we get to the party, just a couple of other things.

First,  I am co-hosting the Homemade Holiday Link Party and the voting starts today. Make sure to come back at noon to vote for your favorite 5 link ups. 

Second, this Friday is the Winter Wonders & Holiday Happenings linky party hosted by Claiming Our Space, Black Fox Homestead, Life with the Hawleys, Lilacs and Longhorns, Practically Functional, The Thrifty Rebel and Yellow Spool. Each of us will have our own project or recipe to share so make sure to stop by to check out what we have each created as well as to link up your own winter or holiday inspired posts.

Now it's time for Tout It Tuesday!
