I heart kid crafts. And luckily I have a kid or two who will do crafts with me. (Thank you, Emily!) Christmas time is prime crafting time here at our house. First there are all the decorating projects, and then there's gift projects.
Thanks to my sister, Mary, I joined Pinterest this Thanksgiving and we were able to make make make all December long. I printed out several pages of pictures and craft instructions, and set up a table with craft supplies. Then I rented Christmas movies and we got to work. I hope you don't mind if I indulge in a teeny bit of bragging here....

Emily made a couple of holders for Hannah's hot hair tools. Sydney made a couple of little pouches for earphones for Hannah and me, and she made a bag for Emily's violin music. She also made a duck tape wallet for John.

I took the Christmas lights down from the house today, and the garbage man already took our tree, so I guess Christmas is over until next year... Time to think about Valentine's Day!
