Deck the Halls

Our crochet garland of lights for the banister. So easy. Such a good way to stash bust some truly noxious acrylics that became quite luminous as "lights." Can you believe all that snow last year!?

What holiday craft could be easier with kids than paper chains for the tree? This allowed for cutting, taping, and running around with the cats chasing the end of the chain. I started out with red, white and green only - but realized it looked like we were decorating for the tour d'Italie, so we went back to the construction paper and colored it up.

Happy crafting! The Purl Bee has some great holiday decorations and ideas, go check them out. You're probably a little late for Etsy but if you hit the "shop local" button your gifts might make it. I'd say I'm about 80% of the way, with a long car ride still to go (that was when I made the mini sweater ornaments last year). Still lots of baking on the list.

This time of year it is easy to get carried away and overscheduled. Take deep breaths near your tree (mmmm. pine) and take frequent breaks for peppermint hot chocolate! Savor savor savor the season and stay well.
