early crafting…

17 Nov

…our dining room table has been a big glittery mess the last couple of days. you see, we’ve started the christmas crafting early this year. i know, it’s only the middle of november – but – is christmas not the craftiest time of the year? let’s make the most of it i say (and it’s a good excuse for us to use up – and aquire more! – crafty goodies). i’m not totally sure what possessed me to break out the tube of glitter…but e loved using it so much that i didn’t have the heart to take it away. the clean up though…gack.

some of our creations so far include christmas monsters…

and a wreath…

and when ella and i do things like this together – i always have to hold myself back a bit from changing how she is making the craft. i have to just give her some guidelines (mostly just so she can be excited about what we’re making) and then leave the rest up to her and help along the way. and i’m going to be in real trouble when she learns how to use those scissors properly.
