The hustle and bustle of the holidays are over and it's time to (theoretically) hunker down for the cold winter months...but what's a girl to do with all this extra energy? As it turns out, there is lots that can be done! I know some people who, in the winter, turn to knitting - it's a good "hunkering" activity, and if you are knitting a blanket you are soon able to stay extra cozy while you work. Try as I might, I am no knitter, but here are a few other DIY projects that already have my creative wheels turning!
These cone people are just too much (in a good way) - I see puppet shows in our future...
As a child I love, love, loved playing with felt boards and cannot wait to introduce Ella-Bean to this imaginative fun!!!
So far my felting has been a giant fail...but this tutorial seems very doable (we'll see!)
New mini-comforter and pillow made from an old comforter...brilliant (I have an extra just waiting for a new life in Ella-Bean's room!)
According to Ella, owls make the same sound that squirrels and rabbits make...perhaps this little lovely will finally convince her otherwise (with Mama-made noises accompanying, of course!)
