I’m a day late! I said I would draw names for the winners of the ornament giveaway last night, but it didn’t happen. I had 5 commenters who came out of the woodwork and let me know you’re reading. I really appreciate that! To show my appreciation, I’m giving all of you an ornament! Norma, Jenny N, Debby, Kathy and Susan just email me your address and I’ll mail it out asap! Thank you so much for your support!
I also wanted to share with you an easy Christmas craft I did with my kids. I make stuff with my kids all the time, usually my daughter but I’ve been working on getting my son involved too. I really wanted them to be involved in the Christmas cards this year. I decided handmade cards from the kids would be a nice family project. I used the super easy handmade stamps I posted about earlier. I cut out the tree designs and did the gluing, you know, the technical part :) I bought a pack of 50 blank cards and envelopes and a bottle of spray ink. I told the kids we were going to be elves and work on an assembly line like at the North Pole. I laid out the cards and had the kids take turns spraying a blob of ink on the right half. Once that dried (or nearly dry) they each grabbed a hand made foam stamp, applied green paint and stamped their trees. After that dried, I gave each kid a Christmas stamp and a red or green ink pad and had them stamp the inside of the card with our greetings. Finally we all signed our names, I added pictures of the kids and we mailed them off! We had a lot of fun and it cost under $10!
