Ready to Wrap, Ready to Craft

I am babysitting two girls for 4-5 hours tomorrow so my friend (their mom) can go volunteer at the cannery.

I spent time tonight setting up for the scheduled events. I brought a folding table in the "craft zone", because everything has to be up off the floor, out of reach of two tiny, very busy hands.

We are going to make felt Christmas stockings. The Etsy shop RikRak is serving as our inspiration. We are adding sequins and mini pom-pom trim to to jazz things up a bit.

Since I seem to be unable to get a thing done if it is just me and Jasper, so I asked the girls if they would be willing to help me wrap gifts. We are going to wrap our gifts for Mike's co-workers.

I pre-cut all the wrapping paper and ribbon, so hopefully we can plow through all 40 boxes. I hung the ribbon from our kitchen chandelier, in hopes that it would be safe from Jasper's
grip. We'll see how well that plan works. :>

Should be a super fun day!

Dang, you are always doing fun things with kids! What a great mom/friend you are. I think I'd like to be babysat by you! Maybe I'd get some projects done! ;)

Happy crafting!

Wow, I bet the girls will be begging for their mom to go to the cannery again sometime soon. Fun!
