(Don’t read this if you think you might be getting a handmade treat from me for Christmas…)
Now that the absolute newness of CM has worn off, and things are less chaotic, I am able to do a little crafting while he sleeps (and he sleeps a lot!) in between feedings.
This is what I am working on: felt and fabric ornaments!
The DIY tutorial was on one of my favorite blogs, and I knew I had to make some. (Thanks D*S for posting the DIY tutorial, and thanks Wise Craft for creating the tutorial!) I enjoy the little details – it is kind of like meditating for me. Soothing in a way. Hopefully I can get these finished this afternoon. and then get started on another project – so many to choose from, so little time! I like making ornaments, as they are small and quick. (I am thinking I may try making some of these stuffed star ornaments next – and maybe personalizing with a single monogram…)
My mumsie, however, took one look at my felt sweaters and was all, you like doing stuff like this? It looks so tedious! Hehehe – I guess the apple did fall far from the tree in the crafty respect.
And finally, pretty flowers that one of CM’s many admirers brought over:
I love fresh cut flowers! Such a luxury and indulgence. That is one thing I love about NYC – all the flower stands at every corner. When we thought we might be moving there after Boom graduated from B-school, I told him I’d be buying flowers every week so we could have them in our (teeny) apartment. Turns out we didn’t move up there, but whenever I get flowers, I always think about that time in our lives, when we didn’t know where we were going to land. Seems like a long time ago, and I guess it was, nearly 7 years ago!
