Free Pattern: Snow Globe Drink Coasters

What I love about the holiday season is filling my house with brightly colored and festive decorations. It's probably the only time of the year that I get excited about glitter. A few years ago I vowed to decorate in only snowmen fashion- this way I could leave my decorations up all through the winter and not seem like such a slacker. Call me lazy. Call me genius. Today I'm sharing a free pattern and tutorial on We All Sew, helping you create fun Gingerbread Snow Globe Drink Coasters to give as a gift or keep all to yourself.

Have you started putting up your holiday decorations yet or do you wait until after Thanksgiving?

Take Action Tuesday

Be warned... you will want cupcakes after this.

I once heard someone say, kids need to step up and save the world from the rest of us. What I love most is the way that children are able to view & embrace the world around us- and the fact that they're not afraid to think outside of the box. Sarah does not set prices, but accepts all donations in exchange for her tempting treats. To date Sarah has humbly presented checks totally $8662.00 to the hospice!!

What'll it be?

This Friday is the deadline for placing custom orders for in time for the holidays- yes, I realize it's only the first week in November. I'm trying to stream line the holiday madness here while writing my upcoming book with C&T Publishing. I love collaborating with customers so much that I actually go through withdraw.

If you've ever wanted to see your idea come to life in TrashN2Tees form- here's your chance! Every Wednesday I'll be posting a blank shirt to my facebook wall- it's up to you to comment with the design you think would be best! (It can be old, new, or 130% made up!) Each week I'll announce the top 3 choices and we'll put it to vote and then when its all finished I'll post it up here on the blog.

This weeks Top 3 design ideas were:

Take Action Tuesday

I've long believed that each and every day we have the power to positively impact the world around us. At the deepest core of who I am and what I do here at TrashN2Tees; the main objective has always been inspiring you to take action. Every Tuesday I'm going share one way you can take action, it might be a tutorial or tip, sharing a campaign, or a clip of pure human awesomeness. Watch the video below to find out how this man helped a complete stranger and possibly saved her life.

Do you believe people are put into our lives for a reason? The Dalai Lama once said, “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.  If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” 

When I hear other stories of compassion, kindness, and selfless-ness I am inspired to be that kind of person. I hope that we all are. Stories need and deserve to be shared as we are all in this together.
Have you made a positive impact in someones life today? What acts of kindness have blessed your life? Please share your experiences- we. need. them.
