This week, I have had so much fun getting crafty! I am mostly a crafty wannabe...I love the idea of it, but rarely have the time, energy, resources,etc...to pull it off. Thanks to the ideas in this blog: http://www.kellehampton.com/2010/11/craftastic.html, I was inspired to make time. Her ideas were simple, and her background music makes me happy...reminds me of older days, not sure why. So off to Hobby Lobby I went with the kids.
|First project: Thanksgiving Turkey Placecards|
The kids had a lot of fun with these, helping glue faces, eyes, beak, waddles, and feathers of course. Oh, and they are cinnamon-scented pinecones, so they smell delicious!

|Second project: Felt flower|
These are super easy and only require 1 sheet of felt and a hot glue gun. These came from a different blog.
These are so easy and you can make them in a bajillion of colors. You can attach them to anything to spice it up. Laynie loves her new headband...but of course, she already lost it. We're still looking. You can't see from my picture, but we glued a red jewel in the middle as well, making it extra fabulous to my easy-to-please 4 year old!
|Third project: Babylegs! |
I saw these silly knee high socks at Target and couldn't resist. Why is there a whole section of knee-high socks at Target anyway...who wears those??? These take me about ten minutes to make. Right up my alley.

|We ended the evening with a cozy fire, watching Polar Express with the big kids. So much to be thankful for. And yay Christmas time!|
