As I've been exercising my creative muscles this past month, the kids have wanted to play too. Every time I pull out the craft supplies, they are right there saying "Can I make something?". That gave me an idea. They are old enough now, 14, 12, and 9 to really start thinking about Christmas in terms of giving rather than receiving. So I told them that this year, I want them to make presents for each other, grandmas, and mom and dad. I gave them a week to plan what they want to make and took them shopping at the craft store this weekend. They came up with some really good ideas. It will be interesting to see how they turn out. I won't post any pics until the gifts are given, but look for them in a future post.
Get thee to an independent bookstore.
