The best gift I ever received from Santa Claus was a shoebox. I was about 7 years old and the box was covered in Christmas paper and filled with craft supplies! A new box of crayons, colored pencils, scissors, craft paper, a ruler and cut outs to glue into a little tablet. I still love having my art bag with an assortment of crafting tools and I love to find new Christmas coloring books!
But of course when you get ready to do a craft project, you never have exactly what you need! Does this happen to you?
I printed the beautiful robin from Diane Knott's Musings
and cut out my card stock...but low and behold...NO brown paper!
So my robin is more of a "Christmas bird"....
one that you won't see in the feeders!
And this one is some kind of crazy blue bird!
But they were great fun to make and I want to thank Diane for giving us the pattern as a gift!
I found a few cute things at the Thrift store last week to share....
I can't resist these cute little "Made in Taiwan" ornaments...
and don't they look cute around my little tree in the lanai!
For more vintage Christmas...visit Oodles and Oodles ! She has an amazing collection and a FUN blog!
I hope your week is happy and filled with good times!
