So I was upstairs checking email and he was downstairs innocently watching his Mickey Mouse video and he comes up and shows me his hands which were completely covered with yogurt. (He's been opening the refridgerator since he was one and has been helping himself since) So I ask him why he is such a mess thinking he was going to show me the 99th yogurt stain on the carpet in front of the TV but instead he runs downstairs to proudly show me his masterpiece.
That isn’t the only place he fingerpainted. He also decided to deface his TV and DVD player including the Mickey Mouse DVD. Anyone know how to get yogurt out of a DVD player?? *sigh* He didn't seem to have a clue that this was "naughty" even though I kept saying it over and over. He was really quite pleased at what he had done. He certainly keeps the detergent companies in business.
The pattern was purchased here. A very quick and neat gift to give to families. I had seen this before but had never heard of the legend of the Christmas nest. A card is included and reads:
A German legend tells of the magic of all the world's birds bursting into song as if with one voice the night the Christ child was born. Your family may find a bird's nest hidden within their Christmas tree. The nest promises the gift of health, wealth, and happiness to all throughout the year!
So you hide the nest somewhere in the tree and the children (or adults) try to find it.
In a previous post I mentioned my friend Janet who is undergoing chemo and I knitted her a hat. I decided that her granddaughter needed a coordinating hat to wear when Grandma wears hers. I used Susan's Ribbon hat pattern in Itty Bitty Hats and just modified it a bit. I love how it turned out.
I have had an inquiry with respect to the frames I use for my pictures. (Hi Andrea!) In my other spare time (ha-ha) I digi scrap and have purchased and downloaded lots of digital elements. Some of my favorite places to shop are here ,here ,here and here. I use Photoshop Elements to create my pages and photos. I haven't done much with it lately. Too busy knitting so I have a little catch up to do.
