What do you do when it is only day two of a two week winter break and the kids are already driving you crazy? Wait. Do weekends count as days during winter break? I think they should so let me start again.
What do you do when it is only day four of a two week winter break and the kids are already driving you crazy? I know what I should have done. I should have dug out the bottle of Pimm’s from the back of our fridge, mixed up some lemonade, poured myself a tall drink and sat in front of the fireplace, eyes closed pretending the heat I was feeling was from the summer sun. Instead we did this.
We started this very cool, albeit time consuming, project months ago and I was feeling rather smug about getting such a head start on it. Surely they would be done well before Christmas. Ok, well maybe not. The crafty part is pretty much done. I just need to figure out the best way to put them together, hole punch the top and send them off in the mail to two unsuspecting Grandmas (incase you actually counted the number of each page, we made a third to keep for ourselves. I mean, really, how could I not keep a copy for myself?)
I came across this website at about this time last year. I loved the idea but had run out of time to make it happen. I bookmarked the site in my favorites and actually remembered it for this year (hooray for me!!) Check it out of you want to see how a really and truly crafty mom does it. All the pages we did were from her list of ideas except for the month of July. I really thought that July should have the American flag on it so we gave it a try.
Not too shabby if you ask me.
