So Crafty!

I try to be crafty sometimes, esp. around the holidays -- sometimes I'm successful;
sometimes, not so much.

A week ago, a friend of Maddy's was over to play. Since I know both girls like to do
crafts, I figured I had the perfect thing for them to work on.
Go figure, both lost interest very quickly and guess who ended up
finishing their projects while they colored? Moi, of course!

Anyhoo, we made these adorable (in my mind) jars with snow Epsom salts, a votive candle, twine and bells around the top and the girls wanted bows on their jars.
Let me just say, it looked a lot cuter on another blog,
but the smiles on these two cuties faces made it all worthwhile.

They are adorable! I love luminaries. I always make Ben drive through Taylor Meadows on Christmas Eve so we can see them lining the streets. Happy Holidays!

The Tongginator really doesn't like arts and crafts all that much... I tend to finish, too. *grin*
