I'm hearing we're in for a pretty big snow, which feels so different now that I'm home. Gone are the days I watched the weather and did snow dances in hope of a free day. Maybe we'll snow dance tonight though. I would love to have a bonus day with the boy.
Last night was my turn to be away, but from what I heard and saw, craft night was full! When I returned, ornaments and a dozen paintings covered our table. The DAS clay is really nice. We've never used it before. It's like a mix between papermache and clay. It's not nearly as oily as some of the others out there. No baking and easy to paint.
Other little treasures are finding their way on to our tree- paperclips in the shapes of stars and little bits of this and that. I'm loving the personality the tree has this year. It is us.
Tonight will bring inspiration from the Dad again. Roasted chicken and sweet potatoes are also in our future, and maybe popcorn as we wait to see what the sky decides to bring.
On a different note, yesterday Sophie and I spent a good part of the morning curled up in blankets and going through our serious pile of library books. We've also pulled out all our holiday books, which is maybe my favorite part of the season. Earlier this week, The Night Before Christmas was read to me, and oh that sweet little voice with the perfect inflections- melts me.
Happy crafting and snow days, if it's coming your way too!
