Weekly Favorites: December 12, 2010

This week, there were so many posts to choose from. I chose fourteen, but there were even more that I thought could go on the list. I really like all the homemade decorations, games and gifts that have been posted this month. A lot of them are much less expensive to make than buying them at the store and they are just as good if not better. I hope you enjoy the list and thank you for your comments. I’m glad I can bring these ideas together and give people a chance to see them when they might not have otherwise.
