Yesterday and today were all about finishing up those things that have been hanging over my head. Like Christmas shopping. I am not a person who finishes Christmas shopping months in advance, but I do like to be finished at least several days before Christmas. Yesterday I got most of it done, and tonight I'll finish up the bits that were hindered by having certain young people with me.
We also started the last of the major Christmas projects yesterday. I found about a bazillion ideas for coasters made from tiles on Pinterest, so I yesterday I cut up some old Christmas bags and mod podged them onto tiles. Then I sprayed them with some spray Art Sealer I had on hand. Today I glued felt to the back so they don't scratch table tops.
My little helper, Blair, wanted to see what was going on up on the table SO BAD!!!
Brynn helped by making lots and lots of Christmas Cards.
Ian had a project all his own. Using special markers made for glass he decorated 10 mugs and 1 bowl with special Christmas messages. It was a real test of his writing and concentrating skills. Here are the results of the our labors over the past two days (including the Kolste Christmas Letter signed and folded - waiting for the pictures to arrive):
