Christmas crafting fun

Last week Tuesday Courtney and I decided to try making a wreath from this tutorial.  I traced the leaves for her, and she cut them out.  ALL 30-40 of them!  Very patiently, quickly, and carefully!

I stapled them onto the cardboard as she cut.

She kept cutting.... and cutting....  I could barely keep up with her!

Here's the finished wreath.  Courtney thought Josie ought to have a look at it.

Josie thought she ought to swat at it... surprising Courtney, making her jump back and her tails fly!!

There.  Now just look through nicely, Josie:

Yeah, Courtney... you, too!

So that was a little bit of Christmas crafting fun!  We'll have more fun this weekend.  And so I'm taking a blog break until next week sometime.... to finish getting ready, and then for some family time.  I hope you all have a beautiful Christmas (even if it's not white, which is perfectly acceptable in my book!)!  And don't forget the REAL reason we celebrate CHRISTmas!!

P.S.  Happy Birthday, Grandma H !!

Sweet project. I have the supplies for a kids craft. But not much time or energy to see it through. They are to cut doves from craft foam with a slit. Then fold paper accordian style to slip the the slit for wings. Perhaps we will get them ready for next year. . .

Hi Grandma G! I thought I'd come over here and see your own blog, and I found this post. I made a wreath this Christmas too, from the same tutorial:

Hi, Nina! Thanks for stopping by! You know, I think I actually saw your wreath first and went to the tutorial from there! I don't remember how I found your blog, though. Anyway, your wreath looks a lot better than mine. :)

I hope your mom enjoys making your Hipster! ;) You think Jess will really make me a little bag? Haha.
