Christmas Craft Night

I had a wonderful evening with my grand-daughter last night working on Christmas crafts. The local university had a free community night at the Union where students in the elementary education program hosted a night of fun crafts. From decorating cookies to making reindeer ornaments out of bells, pipe cleaners, and candy canes, to ornaments with paper and yarn-it was charming! Everyone got into the act and we had just enough of the decorated cookies to have a pleasant sugar high by the end of the evening.

I am having so much fun decorating the house with our many Christmas designs. Take a peek to the right of this to see what I hung up yesterday! Isn't it charming? Again, the design if from a vintage Christmas card. Jeanne is just so good at adapting what we find at antique stores. After we do the research to date them (so we are sure that is no copyright issue), the fun begins as we decide what they will become. This one turned out perfectly! See the pattern on our web site if you'd like and don't forget to click on the free pattern!
