With money a bit short, but still wanting to do something for my visiting teaching companion and the sisters we visit teach, I decided to do one of the favorite crafts I learned. It’s easy, fairly cheap, but so cute. You simply buy a nice whisk (they aren’t too much at Walmart), put Hersey Kisses in some clear wrap and stick it inside the whisk. You then make a tag out of card stock saying “I (or We) “Whisk” You a Merry “Kiss-mas”. You can decorate the card and I will probably add some sparkles and/or Christmas stickers to this before giving them. I thought they were so cute when I first saw them, and I still do :).
Still working on the Llama roving and my grand daughter will be unhapapy to learn that I haven’t knit any more on her blanket. But I will have time to work on it as I search for a new job after this coming week, provided the temp agency doesn’t have something right away. It would be nice if they do, but it would be ok, if it took a week so that I can have a vacation (which I haven’t had in over 7 months) even if it is unpaid. The kids and I decided that we were only going to get things for their children this Christmas. Maybe things will be better next year.
Winter has arrived. It’s been in the teens the last couple of nights and 20’s and 30’s in the daytime. We even had snow on Wednesday evening, then off and on Thursday and Friday, tho it didn’t stick, yet. The weather will be getting colder, minus temps will come and snow will abound, I’ll just hunker down for a few months and then before you know it, it will be spring again. I love spring, it’s my favorite time of year, when things turn green again and everything is new.
