|Here is the Advent calendar, nearly all opened now.|
- I really like miniature houses, whether of paper or of gingerbread.
- I really like snowflakes.
- Don't put on any visual distractions (TV, YouTube) when attempting crafts with Z1.
- Pipe cleaners are an excellent investment for a craft box.
- I really growing crystals and seeing the finished result.
- And, related to 5., one woman's magical/scientific crystal-making potion is another woman's poison.
- 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.
- 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.
(Oh, and we did manage to make a Christmas card for the grandparents this evening - DONE!)
