We had a busy busy weekend of not leaving the house.
We made Orangette’s caramel corn for passing out as we do every year. So yummy!
We tried our hand at yarn wreaths (from Christopher and Tia). Oscar gave up because he couldn’t make it neat enough so I just made them myself.
Both kids loved these modern paper ornaments over at Design Sponge. They’re like magic! I want to do lots of paper things this year but here’s what I don’t get… you need paper printed on both sides for all these cool things (like these). Where do you get that? Scrapbook paper is one sided, my cute wrapping paper is one sided. Gluing cute paper back to back is too bulky. Is there something I’m missing?
We also tackled the make it yourself from scratch gingerbread house. I don’t want to say never again but, how about not again for a reeeeally long time. What the crap? That’s impossible! Getting those edges to match up. Baking all those sides to be flat and sturdy and straight. Ours is seriously leaning and gapped. Oh well, the kids just like to shovel candy in their mouths like they’re getting away with something. Maybe next year I’ll just go straight to the bowls of candy.
