The week of elving
I am particularly enjoying SouleMama's week of elving this week. Today is fabric gift bags, which I love - I did a few last year and hope to do more next year, but this year I just don't have time. Also there were little trees made from fir branches stuck in clay - memo to self: try this with the kids! Our Christmas tree has disappeared to be with lots of others at a Christmas tree festival, representing the knitting group and therefore covered in knitted decorations. I am greatly looking forward to seeing them all at the weekend. In the meantime, and to help Hannah with her 'we need to get ready for Christmas don't we Mummy?' fixation, we need a substitute, and these look like a great idea. I'll have to get out and see what branches I can find. I'm thinking a big one for decorations and little ones for the kids to glitter. We haven't had the glitter out yet this Christmas, and we need to. I feel a glittery making moment coming on.
