These days opportunities for crafting or other non-baby-rumba activities are few and far between. Yet I find myself trying to squeeze in a moment here and there for the shortest ever projects. Earlier today I stole a few minutes to crochet a chain for a little pair of thrifted wool socks that I wanted to hang on the tree. These kinds of mini-projects and quick fixes have a chance to realize and give my crafty soul a little boost.
They also gave me an idea to set a challenge for the new year - a blog challenge, to inspire, channel and get more creativity into the blog again while parenting. I will call it my Make, Thrift & Tell challenge. I'm thinking to run it as a link-up thing, with a logo and everything, so if some of you fancy joining you will be able to. I'll launch it in January and will tell more then - exciting!
By the way, we bought a real tree - a small but sturdy one. Got some dainty silver garlands and a trio of red toadstools in the sales, the rest of the decorations we already owned. I like our tree a lot; it's shiny and a bit quirky with birds and mushrooms and wool socks and mini glass candy canes. Today it snowed in earnest and it's going to stay - as if it was on order for the holidays.
