Busy Weekend and fun freebie!!

Had a busy weekend with the kids at a school holiday workshop. The kids spend hours making gifts for family and friends and had a blast!! Glitter is everywhere!!

They made a ton of gittered ornaments, soup mixes, zipper pulls, flower pens and even catnip toys for their cats!

Today I have to get to crafting some of those many Christmas gifts.. but I thought I'd share a link to a great blog and wonderful FREE pattern for an advent calendar. Maybe I'll have time to complete this project for next Christmas!! Check it out!!http://www.oliverands.com/blog/2008/12/free-holiday-mitten-ornament-pattern.html
