The one thing I am most thankful for is my son goes back to class for some real schoolwork after a week of science camp followed by a week at home with his Mean Mom. Ha ha! The joys of parenting, amIright?
I have some holiday crafts and recipes I will be trying to get posted this week. In the meantime, you can enjoy theses posts from last week. If you still have leftover stuffing in the fridge, try these easy stuffed pork chops to give them new life. And I have some handy tips if you want to try taking your own family Christmas portraits.
I am proud to say I have held off on my Christmas decorating until AFTER Thanksgiving - must give credit where credit is due. I don't want to step on Thanksgiving's toes!
In anticipation of our holiday traveling I made sure to prep ahead of time picking all of my features from last week's party - scroll down to check them out!
Thanks again for tagging along with us at Happiness is Homemade through the month of November, our next hostess for December is Carol from Bluesky At Home!

This Week's Features!
I like doing craft projects once in awhile, and my husband likes deer heads, so here is a happy medium to have in our house! This String Art design from Curly Crafty Mom is so cool - you could totally start off with this design and then try some of your own!
I love, love, LOVE wreaths - I have at least three doors that need a decoration every holiday! I found this Easy DIY Poinsettia Wreath tutorial from Adventures of a DIY Mom and thought it would be perfect.
Now on to the party!
