Good morning everyone and Happy Sunday! I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend thus far. I thought that since I haven't posted all weekend, I would drop you a note and tell you what I have been doing.
Yesterday, I went off to the big city to finish getting all of the craft supplies I needed to make our 25 days of Christmas Extravaganza and the rest of the stuff I needed to finish the kids' presents. I had to get a lot of stuff. I had to go to a lot of stores. It was kind of fun.
In case you didn't know this, I am trying to make our holiday handmade. I'm trying to maximize our Christmas budget by making things for the kids that are going to last a while longer than store bought toys, etc. Plus, I'm kinda having fun doing it.
So here is what I have to make in the next few weeks:
2 matching doll quilts
1 play mat (for driving cars on)
crochet 4 pairs of slippers
other assorted gifts that I can't post here because the recipients will read this and know what they are getting.
An advent calendar
and a partridge in a pear tree.
I know this is primarily a cooking blog, but I think I am going to post pictures of my finished crafts too, just so you can see what else I have been up to besides cooking and baking.
Anyway, this is what I have been up to this weekend. I'm off to go cook my hungry family breakfast before they eat the furniture. :)
I'll have a new post up tomorrow!
