This week I am putting away the last few Christmas items in my home. Their lingering has turned into loitering. In the spirit of the Christmas Wrap Up, I have a few more Christmas-related photos to show you, and then I’ll be done with Christmas 2009. I promise.
Munchkin participated in The Crafty Crow’s Kids Ornament Swap. The theme this year was “Fairy Tales”. She received five very lovely ornaments made by children all over the country, and she made and mailed these magic wand ornaments to the same five children. Munchkin did all of the painting and glittering herself, and I manned the hot glue gun. I do not have pictures of the ornaments that she received, because they were immediately sequestered to her room. However, they included two gingerbread men, a tiny mushroom, a wizard hat and a princess hat, a felt fairy tale book, and a fairy. All lovingly and creatively crafted.
My contribution to the swap was a Santa ornament:
I had a helper – a very fashionable one, I might add – in all of my Christmas endeavors this year, whether crafting, baking, shopping or wrapping.
Others among us cared only about…well, you know. The ribbons.
Christmas 2009 was beautiful and we enjoyed it very much. Now on to the New Year!
