super saturday



yes,
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.
not one.
sad.
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!
yikes.
(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-
regular,
candy cane,
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
pretty simple,
but it was a nice day!

I'm thinking I need to crash your in future years since our ward never does it and you always have cute things!

I agree with Andrea. Next year let us know what, where and when!

Soooo cute!!! We made those stacking boxes in our ward too. Sadly, I missed it.
Hot chocolate bar sounds so fun. White chocolate is my favorite too.
Sounds like you had an awesome time.
Isn't it the pits how you miss out on all the photo ops when you are in charge. I'm too stressed to think about taking pictures.
