Snowflakes!

Snowflakes were at our house today!
handmade ones.....

Today the girls and I did some Christmas craft...
I had picked up these - do it yourself - decorations
from Spotlight a few weeks back and
today we decided to make them ....


Firstly we sorted the beads out into there order and size.....
then we had to concentrate while trying to feed the little beads onto the wire

the end result is 3 beautiful little snowflakes to hang on the Christmas tree
one each and one for a friend..........


Next we decorated some Christmas cards ourselves....
Gingerbread houses.... complete with lollies and little men... he he...
not edible though....LOL

Ooh I wonder who this is for...someone beginning with R
the special little person will get this in the mail next week..
so look out if your name begins with 'R'
and your little and sooo special...he he

Hope your having a wonderful week.
Don't forget there are some wonderful
Christmas advent ideas over here!

Hugs and Blessings

Dawn,
Your post took me on a trip down memory lane :>) I loved doing Christmas crafts with both the children and, in fact, many of the pretty things they made still make guest appearances on the tree every year.
The little snowflakes are so delicate and must have been quite fiddly to make so the girls did really well :>)
I love those little gingerbread house cards too...look, my name begins with an R!!
Hugs Rangela...haha!
