The boys were coming by today after school for a while while their momma ran into town to get a couple of things done so I wanted to get busy on these while I was watching tv last night.
I made the little snowman ornaments the boys are holding but if we would have had more time today I would have totally had them make them. They would be a great kids project, with just a bit of help and supervision. Especially if you choose to use a hot glue gun.
As you can see, Emmett is wanting to show off not only his ornament but his candy. lol I love his little tum tum showing :) I simply adore this two!
There was a time when I thought everythingI created had to be made with the most current papers and I had to do it up top notch. Spend hours on it. I realize now... sometimes it just doesn't have to be. It's okay... chill. Just enjoy the process. Use things up. Look how happy these two little guys are with a simple painted box. I painted the boxes, because it was so much less time consuming than cutting and adding papers. The numbers I used I dug out of a bin of old stuff. ( old Foofa la numbers from about 10 years ago) seriously. The little embellishments are pieces that came with some Christmas buttons I just bought, but know I probably wouldn't use for anything else.
Here is a close up. Nothing super fancy... but it serves the purpose and made them pretty darn happy.
I think it is going to be VERY difficult for Emmett to restrain himself and only open one drawer a day. hahah
