One more (last minute) Christmas craft!

I have been wanting to get new curtains & throw pillows for the sofas in our LR for the longest. I liked the orange, but it reminded me too much of the fall. After masterfully convincing begging the hubbs, I got approval to buy new curtains from one of my favorite places - JCP. Here is what I bought:

They are the Jewel-Tex Thermal II Window Coordinates & I got them in ivory beige. I haven't taken a photo of them up in my LR yet, but they look awesome!! And they match perfectly with my last crafty feat for this holiday season: DIY throw pillows!!

I got this cool & thrifty idea from Traci at "Beneath My Heart" & it is really ridiculously easy. I just headed over to one of my favorite discount stores - Burlington Coat Factory. But don't let the name fool you - Burlington has all sorts of goodies - from coats, to clothes, to baby stuff, to art, furniture & home decor. They have it all. So, first I picked up two chocolate brown throw pillows, then I found two festive place mats for my little project. I followed Traci's directions exactly, except I couldn't find any poly fill for the pillows, so I just took an old bed pillow, cut it open & used the filling from that for these beauties.

So easy & no sewing machine required! I got the placemats for $2.99 each & made two pillows, so this project only cost me $6.00!!

From the Dennifer Family to yours, we want to wish you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!
