A little over a week to go and still so much to do! Thank goodness for the few things that can be checked off the list.
Washcloth and soap set for Grandma L. The handmade soaps are from Five Cats Creations and smell so unbelievably good. With names like Martini Mafia and Beach Baby, my MIL will be feeling like she's on a Caribbean vacation every time she uses them. I think this gift will come in handy during a long western New York winter.
Some ornaments for the tree. The holiday issue of Mollie Makes was filled with cute decorating ideas.
These reindeer ornaments were super quick and easy to make.
Winter Wonderland village. The kids had so much fun creating this little Lego village. Next year we might add the toy store or bakery. And you can't have a Winter Wonderland without a jolly snowman. Ours is named Snowball and was made by the talented Steph. I was one of the lucky winners from her felted snowman contest.
This time of year can be stressful and a little overwhelming. There are cards to mail out, presents to shop for and wrap, Christmas dinner to plan. The list goes on and on. But taking a few moments to enjoy the season should be right at the top of our lists. Making goofy ornaments, playing with holiday Legos, coming up with the perfect name for a snowman...these are some of the things that I love about Christmastime.
(go to FO Friday with TAMI'S AMIS for lots of wonderful knitting and crochet ideas)
