Despite below-zero temperatures, a little one with a fever, and yes, even mercury in retrograde, the making-of-holiday-magic continues over here.
Yesterday (between naps, snuggles by the fire, and countless books) we created with: glitter, fabric, wool roving and felt, fabric (scraps and yardage), spices, water, and small plastic animals. I don't want to reveal any secrets, but here is this sneak preview of some of the creations is still rather nebulous. (If you are a personal friend I swear – none of this is for you. Really. Now look away.)
At one point last night I found myself gathering up my handwork and a headlamp to hang out with Lupine in her bed. Sleepy fever kids makes for interesting work. Here is to being on the upswing and keeping the crafts rolling!
