The felted gnome is so cute! I actually bought that book last month and have set it aside for the girls b-day in Feb :D And we have the magic window stars book & our kite paper, but haven't gotten to making our window stars yet. Hopefully in Jan - lol! Too much to do and so little time - though it always looks like you guys manage to get so much done, in a slow, enjoyable, rhythmic way. I really enjoyed this post, Jennifer!

I love all the festivites in winter. All the months preparations then in a blink of an eye it's over but it sure is fun. Can't wait to read the book to my Little's they are getting it for Christmas.

Lots of good crafting going on! We have been doing much of the same... needle felting, embroidery, even some window stars to give as gifts.
I look forward to seeing that gnome book some day. Seems to be wonderful!

Wishing you and your family have a wonderful holiday season!
