If you're a regular reader, you know I feature a Christmas ornament idea on the 25th of every month. I know, I know...it looks a bit strange to see "Christmas" in April. My goal however, is to help you prepare in small ways all throughout the year, so that when the season arrives, you'll have some breathing room admidst the chaos. If you're one who cannot bring themselves to think of Christmas until after Thanksgiving, that's fine too. By then, there will be quite an archive of ideas for you to choose from!
I'm especially excited about this month's ornament. It's one of the cutest I have ever seen! I found it originally at Confessions of a Homeschooler, and saw other versions at Home Grown Hearts and My Family My Forever, as well. I already had all the necessary materials...well, almost everything, that is. The one thing I needed most were some tiny hands! As I began to think of who I might recruit to help, a light bulb went off!
Meet my friend Stephanie and her adorable kids Rheya and Zander.
Aren't they ADORABLE!?!? Those sweet and priceless handprints get me every time! This is truly one of the sweetest ornaments, ever! Can you imagine what a terrific gift this would be a for Grandparent?! Add some filler inside (snow, tinsel, paper shred, cotton batting, etc.) and you're good to go!
