Craft supplies

After a fairly lazy morning involving an unexpected vist we set off this afternoon on the search for craft supplies.  Fortunatly we didn't have to search too far as there is a Hobbycraft 20 minutes away.  We came away with paint, glitter, card, snowflake cutouts, pom poms and googly eyes.

Were going to have a bash at the girls making their own Christmas cards for close family members, so expect some pictures in the next couple of days.  Also going to have a go at making some Christmas deccies, using the snowflake cutouts and painting them.  I'm toying with the idea of making my own cards using the wintery pictures i have taken but wondering if it's a bit late in the day to try and be so ambitions with everything else i have to do.  Maybe an idea for next year, will hopefully have a bigger supply of better quality pictures thanks to my christmas pressent

 Also for next year i would really like to make like a garland of advent stockings and in each one put a part of the nativity story.  The girls both have wooden advent calendars which have sweets in (well Pudding's doesn't this year but will next year.)  Although we are not Christians i want to bring the girls up knowing what it is the we are actually celebrating at Christmas and that it's not just all about presents.

I also had to stop myself for buying some lovely wool with the intention of knitting some cosy socks with it.  I am already in the process of knitting a scarf for my MIL birthday, a knitted farmyard for the girls and a jumper for munch.  I am very much an ideas person, i can come with hundrends of good ideas but never have the time to actually implement them.
