About this time of year (one week until Christmas) I begin to panic. My to do list seems too large and my fears of my own crafting inadequacy raise their ugly head. So, instead of dwelling on the impossible (getting everything done, and indeed, doing it perfectly) I share with you some things that have been crossed off the Christmas crafting list.
1. Christmas cards to go with cookies for the girls' teachers. I had Violet paint with water colors and then we punched out snowflakes and reindeer, glued onto card stock and sprinkled liberally with glitter.
2. Christmas Houses - Lucy's teachers got these. She directed the color choices and painted. The little people (vaguely) resemble her two wonderful teachers. (photo taken in the morning rush out the door..I see milk left on the counter....who did that?)
Here's to all of you making presents this season. May you find enough time to stitch and paint, may your scissors always be where you left them, and may your gift be opened with enthusiastic oohhhs and aahhhs.
