We are in the process of a little advent catch-up around here. Today we finally made the salt dough ornaments, which will be painted after naps. But, if I completely get caught up with the calendar, this afternoon we will also have to bake ice cream cone cupcakes and make playdough. I’m hoping that since I let Emma play with the left over salt dough that maybe she’ll let her mom slide on the playdough. But probably we will be making a big vat of playdough tonight as well. I think next year, I’ll add some cushion days….like, read a book, watch a video, build a tent with the sofa cushions…. Even so, I’m still enjoying the excitement that greets each tear of a new link from the chain. (and then I get a little panicked when I see how short it is getting and think of how many unfinished Christmas presents are waiting patiently for me in the craft closet…)
SEWING ADVICE NEEDED:
Speaking of projects, I would like to make big floor pillows for Emma and Mary. I’m looking for advice, recommendations on fabric. I think that wool felt or fleece will get "pill-y", but I like the softness of them. Any ideas, advice would be appreciated.
Well, I sat down at the computer meaning to balance my checkbook and pay bills. I thought a diet coke and a good CD would ease the pain of the task at hand. Dan was laid off again this week. It has been touch and go, since I last wrote about him being laid off. He got more work, but was laid off again on Monday because there are no carpentry jobs right now with this company…just in time for Christmas.
Obviously, Mary has other plans for my time right now…she’s calling to me from her crib. Guess I’ll just have to set the old checkbook aside for now….
