it was weeks ago.
I have been awful about posting about it,
because- although I had my camera there,
I did not pull it out once,
so i have no pictures.
but I will tell you about it.
we did two wood crafts- one was the stacked wood with vinyl words- a girl in our ward cut them out,so it was very affordable!
then the wooden nativities. I do love them.
so simple and beautiful.
I have some more wood and paint, and am going to make up a few for presents to give away. I scoured Michaels for weeks, and had my sister scour other ones in the city to find enough heads for everyone!
(I took this picture at a ladies house we were at for a RS meeting- she had her crafts still out, so I snapped a pic, so at least I have something to show!)
the one craft I did, that I love- was a string of lights, with strips of fabric tied on them.
it took all the day, and more work at home- but I love it. sadly I don't really have a place in my house to display it.- so for now it is wrapped on my tree- which I do like, but I did just do a small string of lights, so I am now thinking of doing more lights so that I can wrap it more than 2 times around my tree.
I had a hot chocolate bar set up- with three different kinds of hot chocolate-
and white (my favorite)
with whipped cream, candy canes, sprinkles, and cookies to go in it.- and marshmallows, and cherries, and caramel sauce- the works. so delish!
I wish I had taken a picture of the gym at the church. but I didn't. forgot all about my camera until the decorations were down.
I made paper chains with white paper, and fancy paper snowflakes,
and they were hanging all around.
super cheap, easy- I am all over that!
we also had a lightbulb ornament- painted like a reindeer (way too hard for me!)
gifts in a jar,
and cardboard 3D stars.
and a card making table
but it was a nice day!
