Zoie helps her GiGi and grandpa decorate their tree every year so we gave them to her GiGi. We each kept one for ourselves as a memento of our day. I also took her the stuff to make the decoupaged soap for her teachers gifts. She and her mom had read my blog and she wanted to make these. I didn't know that so what a happy coincidence! She's a very talented and crafty seven year old. Last year she knitted scarves on a loom for her grandparents and great-grandparents. She thought it was so funny that I asked her to teach me how to use one. I bought two at a garage sale with no instructions. She said, hum... that's funny, you're the one who always teaches me to do crafts!!
My babies are both sleeping (Jimmie Dean and Mickey) I think I'll try to hook a little now. I'm going to make some more of the Santa dolls as gifts this year.
Here's a copyright free Santa you can use to decoupage your soap. I bought a wonderful CD of antique postcards that are all c.r. free. Just right click him and print it on plain paper. Remember three coats of mod podge first, then pic, then three more coats.
Let the beauty we love be what we do...
