Christmas will be here in three days and I have been a very busy elf this week.
These bells were made by me in kindergarten.
You will never believe what they are made from. The tops of plastic syringe containers! My mom –a nurse - was the original recycler. She collected these to make the ornaments with my class. Wrapped in tin foil, decorated with glitter, a jingle bell inside, and tied together with ribbon. Obviously creativity runs in the family.
Do you see this adorable window?
There are three on my tree. I added the ribbon hanger, lights and wreath. They were actually my major gift last year for Christmas. Yes my dad made and wrapped up three tiny windows, oh yes there was also a mystery poem-that dad! He was actually giving me the windows I needed for my town home but could never seem to be able to afford (lost bonuses, illness, car etc…) Again…creativity…family…oh you should have seen what he made my sister…my mother….
BTW notice the bubble light? Those are my favorites from when I was a small child.
Now I have been collaborating with some other elves.
These three sweeties (of a church friend) spent the morning with me and we beaded and they each made a present for their mother and the girls made necklaces for themselves.
Well back to the sewing machine!
