Yeah! I accomplished so much today in the way of sewing and crafting. I finished my Advent Calendar. I just have to purchase a rod to hang it up, but here it is with my daughter holding it up.
I also made another notebook cover and embroidered my daughter’s name on the front. Oh, did I mention that I have an embroidery machine and that I love to embroider? Well, I do. I also added a ribbon for a bookmark and a piece of elastic in the front for a pen holder.
I also made myself a pair of earrings. Oh, did I mention that my daughter and I like to make things with beads? Well, we do!
And, then I made an angel cell phone charm~
Amanda made this necklace ~
It turned out so cute. We had some great quality time this evening beading and chatting. I love to connect with her, these years (middle school) it is so important to stay connected to your kids. They have so many other outside influences! Anywhoooo, I had a great day! Besides the fact that I am accomplishing a ton, I am having fun doing it. The notebook covers and the cell phone charms are examples for me to use this Sunday. My sister and I and the kids (her 3, my 1) are having a “kids craft day”. Basically, the kids are going to make Christmas presents for their friends and teachers. They are excited. That is all for today, if I don’t go get some sleep I will fall over in my chair. Bye~
