Lessons Learned from Conquering Christmas

It's December the 21st and we're leaving for Ireland tomorrow. I declare Christmas conquered. 
Here is the Advent calendar, nearly all opened now.
Here is what I learned in the process:
  1. I really like miniature houses, whether of paper or of gingerbread.
  2. I really like snowflakes.
  3. Don't put on any visual distractions (TV, YouTube) when attempting crafts with Z1.
  4. Pipe cleaners are an excellent investment for a craft box.
  5. I really growing crystals and seeing the finished result.
  6. And, related to 5., one woman's magical/scientific crystal-making potion is another woman's poison.
  7. Blogging is quite effective at stopping me mentally packing for our Dublin trip for the entire month of December - I only made a packing list on the 16th.
  8. There is time to do a crafty type thing between getting home from school and getting dinner on but it's not always a good idea.
People, I am off to Dublin until the new year but I will be back. The name of the blog will change and it will be at www.conqueringcrafts.com .  Anyone eagle-eyed will have noticed that the www.conqueringchristmas.blogspot.ca address was already redirecting to the conquering crafts one - the magic of the internet did that and will continue to do so.

Have a very lovely Christmas, however you choose to celebrate it.

(Oh, and we did manage to make a Christmas card for the grandparents this evening - DONE!)
