Jen made me three mittens because she didn’t like how they were turning out so I am hanging all three. I am partial to the blue one though.

Yesterday I hosted a gingerbread house party:

Such fun! It has been a few years since I stopped doing this but I had a special request. I think that my mil had the most fun!

December 20 and Christmas is almost here!

Over the last month I have been collecting sequins and confetti. It all started with my fabric snowflake postcard. I have found quite a bit at the local Dollarama and the local craft store had some festive ones. Yesterday I went to the store in the college and wow, they had the perfect “gift box” confetti ( in the little round containers). I was trying to figure out how to organize this newest obsession and looked up….my husband had brought these plastic containers home during the summer. I kept them. Now they are fulfilling their purpose.

The plan for these is too use them in my postcards.

Now to finish cleaning the house because I am expecting a houseful of children and adults…to make gingerbread houses! They are ready to be built…Miniature houses.

IMG_5145.JPG I made them for a friend’s birthday and one for her mother. I got the tag idea from Pinterest and will find the blogger. Her name is Angie. I loved doing these and I have ideas for more! Here are the two missing mittens:
