My kiddos are constantly playing with pots/pans/canned goods. It keeps them pretty happy and they are fairly nice to each other while they play.
Today in our advent calendar we pulled out a piece of paper that said, "make homemade cookie ornaments with mommy". I got the recipe from this gal (look around at her shop...it's adorable!)
So hopefully it's a fun project!
Speaking of projects....I have been super busy making Christmas gifts this year. One of my friends and I have gotten crazy into hand stitching anything you can think of. We slave away. Our kids play together.
It's been so fun!
So here are a few of the things I've done:
The owl scarf that took me 9 hours to do. Oy.
This scarf took only a few hours and I'm going to have my mom sew on the backing with a MACHINE.
(oh yeah, mom, will you do that when I bring them home for Christmas??)
Then there's this little thing that I'm kind of in love with. It will be a little hard to part with her:
It's a little owl purse for my niece.
Check out the caboose!
My head is swimming with ideas of more purses for little girls. Or young-at-heart-women. It's been a blast making Christmas gifts this year! I'm probably about 50/50 handmade/store bought, but once I figure out what to make for 9 and 11 year old boys I may go 100% handmade.
Hope you all have a lovely Thursday!!
