So while I'm reminiscing, let me share a few of the crafty projects I managed to accomplish over the break (and I use that word loosely because I certainly didn't get any time off!) First up I had one excited little 6-year-old who wanted to give a Christmas card to every kid in her class and handmade was definitely going to be better.
I knew it was going to have to be a design that was quick and simple and easy to replicate, so thanks to my Silhouette, a Christmas stamp and some glitter this is what we came up with. They did the job and everyone was happy!
Along similar lines I then moved onto my Christmas tags and made a bunch of them too. Aren't those reindeer the cutest things?!

Yep that's right - it was all about the mass production for this project too!

This year we bought each of the girls all the supplies they needed to complete one crafty project each.

And for Moodles it was this decorate-your-own-reindeer set. Super cute don't you think?
Last but not least, here's a sneak peek of my Not-Quite-a-December-Daily which I (surprisingly) finished. I haven't managed to take photos of it yet, but at least I managed to complete it! Which means I anticipate sharing another Christmas post with you in the near future.
In the meantime I'm about to savour a long weekend away with The Man celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary, so don't expect to hear from me for a couple of days ;-)
