By now you should know that I LOVE doing crafty things.
I read several craft blogs and have about 10 projects that I am dying to make at any given time.
I SO enjoy sitting down with a cup of coffee and sewing, gluing, cutting, painting..
I really think it is a de-stresser for me.
I feel relaxed when I am doing something creative.
And amazingly my kids leave me alone for the most part.
If they do come around, I just give them a paintbrush and let them go at it...
usually its easy to clean up.
Today, I got together with some old friends that I havent seen in forever and we traded cookies, drank coffee and made this adorable craft that I found here
It was such a great time!
Here are the finished products on our tree- I LOVE how they look translucent and colorful and bright!
I am trying to make more for gift tags to give to family and friends!
On another creative note, I found these two vases discounted deeply
at Joanne's and had to scoop them up. I put natural elements in them-
found out in my back yard and couldn't be happier with how they turned out.
