These are for all the little girls in our life. We have numerous nieces, and practically all of our friends have little girls.Tada! Composition book covers. With handy-dandy crayon pockets! (washable crayons of course.)
They can be easily switched when the book is full, and the great thing about comp books is you can trim the cover a tiny bit if it fits too snug.
They're quick and easy ( and cheap) to make for all your last minute needs. Really, what crafty lady wouldn't like one of these. Just stick some coloured pencils in the pocket instead. I have to make some boy ones as well. There's some tutorials for the same idea here and here, but I just did some math and faked it.
The only other thing I can share is tons and tons of sweets. We've been making cookies every Wednesday. but I realized yesterday that I had been collecting little things to decorate cupcakes and hadn't made a one yet. Last night we made four dozen solutions to that.
The lighting isn't perfect, it was getting late, but a couple made it home for the natural light photo shoot here.
Snowmen with orange slice noses and chocolate mini chip eyes.
I know crunched candy canes is hardly inspired, but it looked so pretty on this fabric print.
Oh! And these great little bobble head Santas I picked up in the summer.
Aren't they cute? I hadn't made any cupcakes in quite awhile. I was starting to get a little twitchy. I feel much better now. Phew.
Now I just have to wrap the notebooks, finish up a super secret big gift, get some gift certificates to the movie theatre, and decide what to make for the twelve dozen cookies I need for the big Christmas Eve cookie swap and Aunt Cheri's.
