I apologize for the delay in getting this information out to you! I found the inspiration and instructions for the snow men I posted previously from a Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Crafts magazine. These came from Johanna Parker, you can find her instructions here. I am in absolute crafters envy . . .her designs are just so whimsical and fun! I did enjoy working with this medium and plan on experimenting sometime in the future.
Right now my crafting adventures have to be kept to a minimum as we have our home STILL up for sale. I am very much looking forward to the time when my home won't be on display and can craft to me hearts desire. It is looking like we will possibly build when we relocate to Nashville TN. Which also means temporary housing of some manner. Has anyone reading this blog ever done this with two small kids? I know I am jumping the gun but I am a planner and a control freak. This basically boils down to insomnia because I go to sleep running all the what ifs, do we stay here and finish out school, how will this affect my children questions running through my head. So please post and share any tips you may have.
I truly hope that all of you are looking forward to 2011 with a full and joyful heart. With everything going on in the world I am fully aware that this is a daunting task for some. I know that the only way I can face 2011 with a full and joyful heart is because God loves me, is for me and even though it is hard sometimes I need to trust in that.
My seven year old daughter reminded me of this the other day. We were in the car and she said "Mom you know what I like about myself? I like that I have parents, that God made me and that God loves me!"
