* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Getting an early start on winter holidays crafts.


I've actually been working on some autumn decorations, still in progress (taking a little longer than originally hoped, for a variety of reasons).

But this year for Yule I hope to make these decorations: http://paganwiccan.about.com/od/yulecrafts/ss/Cinnamon-Spell-Ornaments.htm
(Was planning to make them last year, but didn't get that far - maybe posting this here will help me definitely get round to it this year... We'll see.)

Looks nice, I have also seen ornaments ideas using salt dough, perhaps I do some salt dough with spices so they are scented. Will google search see if anyone did it with spices in it.:)

So what do you have going this year in preparation for winter holidays?


 
I found beautiful die cut "assemble yourself" lanterns at the craft store.  They're gold on one side, and white on the other.  Assembling them with a cat around has proved perilous, but they're really lovely!  Just throw some dewdrop lights inside and you have an instant centerpiece.

I live next to a Christmas tree farm, and they've got some scrap boughs I'm making into large wreaths for outside as well.

I'm also doing a huge batch of custom mixed tea, sewn into teabags for stocking stuffers.  I fold my own boxes, which is again tricky with a cat around, but so cute it's worth it.

This year I'm making patchwork Christmas ornaments out of old neckties. (I have a book on quilting with ties that gave me the idea.) The ties have more fabric in them than you'd think, so I'd probably have enough for a dozen ornaments, but I'm only making two because my attention span is short.
