I even got my girls into the herb action with rosemary tree/wreath miniatures:
And I love that they dry so nicely. This thyme is already dried out and went perfectly with our table’s Christmas centerpiece:
Now onto something less odoriferous; how about chalkboard art. I officially jumped on the chalk art bandwagon:
This was actually a simple project that made my handwriting appear much better than it really is. I simply used the same technique as I did with my pallet art by printing out some script I had found on the internet, rubbing chalk all over the back of the paper, then placing the paper on the chalkboard and using a pencil to trace the art onto the board. If that didn’t make sense you can find more HERE. I used a chalk marker to get a clean look, but you can also simply wet a piece of chalk.
Speaking of chalkboards. This chalk work that my girlfriend put up on her blog is now the background of my phone since I need the mommy reminder every day:
And now onto those kiddos I mother. Everyone from my 11-year-old to my 3-year-old has been enjoying these printables:
And we plan to get into the Christmas spirit one December morning with these:
I’m not a baker, but there is something about the cold weather that makes me want to throw on apron and turn on the oven. I’ve made these grain-free, dairy-free, sugar-free muffins a couple of times; and they are a hit with the whole family:
Finally, here’s what my kids are into this winter. They want Santa to be real, so they can ask him for a pompsky. Don’t know what a pompsky is? Check out this bundle of fluff:
They’re wishing for Santa to be real; because they know that when it come to animals in the home, Daddy isn’t quite as jolly as the old man in a red suit.
May you stay cozy and warm and full of ideas this winter!
