Today is about Christmas crafting. .. its been a while since Frankie and I did some crafts, I think this is the last one we did together.. that I can remember anyway. Inspired by Alicia's pompoms and some Japanese craft books. Its a fun project, very happy and colorful. Alicia references this tutorial, over at Kiddley. Perfect for young and old. And even grinches.
I wonder where my mom got all her great craft ideas when we were growing up, you know, without the internet! Was there some secret mom underground where the instructions for soap fish were passed around? You know, those oval shaped bars with matching tulle over them to make a big fishy tail, sequins glued on. The little pearl headed pins we used for them to stand on? Any one? sound familiar? I know other people made the mosaic ashtrays, I've seen those in antique stores. I think those were kits. Leather laced wallets? Embossed Copper? WOODBURNING????
Ok, well that's enough of that. I guess we'll end this holiday blog hop on that slightly scary note!!
Today is Linda's day!! I know she' s cooking up something good for us. Check it out.
So hoppers, thanks for coming by and listening to my crazy Christmas stories. I hadn't thought of so many of them in ages. Gudrun will be tallying up the comments and announcing the winner in a couple of days, so stay tuned.
And starting Monday, back to our regularly scheduled program. Yikes, it's almost Thanksgiving! Thanks again everyone. You guys are the greatest. xo
