I have a little confession to make over at the Oreck blog today.
It’s about a piece of my personality and how it impacts my parenting habits, and I know some of you are in the same boat.
I don’t think it’s anything to feel guilty about, just embrace it and make sure it’s not an excuse to not spend any time with your kids…
The post is really about a craft that we did from the Truth in the Tinsel eBook by Amanda White. (Use the code KITCHENSTEW for 20% off!)
I regret that we’ve only done a few of the days from this excellent book, which is basically an adaptation to the Jesse Tree for little ones, 3-7 years old or so. We’ve had a lot of people getting sick around here lately, so I’ve done less than I wanted for all parts of Christmas preparation (our tree is not yet up and our house is only 1/4 decorated, for example).
But this craft is simple for kids to do and was a really good project for my daughter and me, plus a few neighbor girls. My kids love crafts, so even though they’re not a passion of mine, I’m glad we got to do a couple with Truth in the Tinsel. Isn’t this one cute?
It’s not rocket science, but if you’d like directions for the stained glass style ornament, here’s the article.
I’m winding down at KS here for the holidays – hoping to get the final Blendtec review post (third of three) out today or tomorrow, and then I’ll be quiet for a few days until a series called “One Quick Tip” that I’ll run between Christmas and New Year’s before the big “back to basics/KS Top 10″ series with Tiffany of Don’t Waste the Crumbs in January.
Have a blessed final week of Advent!
