This is week 11 of my personal challenge to create one new thing every day.
Day 1: went a little more cartoony today with my owls.
Days 2 & 3: made magnets
Day 4: reindeer with the kids
Day 5: sugar cookies
Days 6 & 7:
I’m doing all the gift wrapping and that’s filling my creativity quota right now.
I think I’m going to give myself a few days off to enjoy Christmas without worrying about the project. We’ll see…
Sorry to be boring this week, but addressing all my Christmas cards by hand is taking up most of my spare time. Days 1-3 have all been that. And helping my kids draw pictures for their relatives and friends for Christmas. I’m so proud of all the progress they’ve been making creatively throughout this venture.
I’ve spent the last few days picking out Christmas gifts, planning a mini-vacation, addressing more Christmas cards and wrapping gifts. I’ve also orchestrated some fun with our family’s advent house. We have a little wooden house with doors, and behind each one we can put our own treats. I made a bunch of little notes that direct the kids on scavenger hunts to find little toys or “adventure” tickets. I’m keeping busy and running low on time this holiday season!
