Anyway, in October, I went to the craft store to buy paint for the frame in our library, and because I have some sort of disorder that prevents me from leaving a craft store with fewer than ten items, I had to browse all the aisles. You know, just in case there was something that I didn't know I needed until I saw it.
They had Christmas craft items for kids, including foam trees and foam ornament stickers, and I decided that Lucas could probably (maybe, hopefully) decorate the trees for our family members. If you think that this will be another post about how Lucas hated my crafty ideas, you're wrong! (Hallelujah!)
Here were my supplies:
|The foam shape stickers in the bucket weren't in the Christmas section. |
I bought them because the actual "ornament" stickers were too expensive to buy a ton of.
|When he started making the trees, it was warm enough to wear shorts. Now we have at least six inches of snow. Sigh.|
I took the best ones, used a hole punch to make a hole and string ribbon through them, wrote Lucas's name and the year on the back, and then mailed them out to our families. I meant to take a picture of all of the trees before I mailed them, but of course I only remembered that I wanted to do that after most of them had already been sealed in the envelopes. So here's three of them:
|Yes, he really did them all by himself with no sticker-placement input from me.|
Some of the earlier ones have multiple stickers on top of each other, but he was pretty good about spacing them out.
