Our weekend crafting started with some simple ornaments:
A gingerbread house decorating session (thankfully assisted by our handy, builder, mail man guy who "glued" the shattered pieces of the house back together for us so we could still enjoy the activity even after opening the box and discovering that someone had surly dropped it at some point.)Yesterday we woke up to the first snow of the season. We crossed our fingers and toes that it would stick around until Christmas morning, but we know full well that it won't. We won't stop wishing for it's return, however.
There are many, many projects complete and ready for post office departure.
That makes me feel so happy.
The list that awaits for my own family, however, is making me a little stressed.
So aside from the kid crafts, this weekend I didn't sew a stitch! Not one. Instead I read two 500 page books. These two, in fact. And y'all aren' t joking when you say they are book "crack". I'm glad the other two are waiting at this house for at least another day so that I can't ignore my to do lists anymore.
I've got boxes to pack! And dishes to do. And dinner to fix. And sewing, sewing, sewing! Oh my!
