Christmas (Page 3)

It is now time to focus on our family’s wondrous holiday events, so we will be tucking Wee Folk Art in until January 2, 2012. No matter how you celebrate the season, we hope you are surrounded by those you love.     We Wish You the Merriest Christmas, filledRead More →

We have this little “Charlie Brown” Christmas tree in our family room. The big one, with all the bells and whistles is in the living room centered in the big front window. It is beautiful and holds all our fancy ornaments but we like all of our nooks and cranniesRead More →

Today marks the first Sunday of Advent. It seems that no matter how far away Christmas may seem throughout the year, those last 4 weeks fly by. Although I’m sure all of you know that we keep a pictorial gallery of our past crafts, it can be accessed by hittingRead More →

We are trying something new this year… and I must admit I’m a little bit nervous. As a family, we decided that we wanted to simplify Christmas and focus on the joy of being together. So, for the first time ever, the adults are not exchanging gifts. Gulp and Yikes! I amRead More →

Luckily for us our holiday visitors came early. We picked up our son Adam at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning and Drew, Meghan and the Little Lady, joined us at noon on Wednesday. Needless to say, any of our last minute crafting went out the window! As a family we didRead More →

In my kids’ minds, you don’t get to claim a new age on your birthday until you blow out the candles on your cake. Apparently, it is the actual act of blowing out the candles that makes your birthday official. Bug would not let Fairy call herself six years oldRead More →

Any child that can hold a pair of scissors can help with this project. Even younger children can help with the gluing. The end result is lovely and would make a special gift for grandmas and grandpas! Materials and Supplies: red, pink and green construction paper used cardboard from boxesRead More →

This week’s project was building a gingerbread house. My kids were very excited to get started on this one. We braved the bitter cold and went out to buy a gingerbread form kit (ie the cookie cutters shaped to make perfect sides), but inadvertently I ended up with a pre-bakedRead More →

I realize that I shared a Poinsettia Applique Block a few weeks ago. Basically, for that block I simply took the poinsettia I made for the Christmas Poinsettia Garland and “flattened” it. I think I would have preferred the applique block better if I had 2 more contrasting felts, but IRead More →

For a long time now I’ve been meaning to turn some of our applique blocks into coloring pages. Well, today when Michelle and the wee ones were over, Pixie was looking for something “crafty” to do, as Pixie often does, and I thought this week’s Primitive Angel Block would beRead More →

Christmas is a time for not only making memories but for remembering. Certainly, when we look back on Christmases past, we are sure to conjure up some memories of food. In just about every conceivable celebration, you will find food. Not surprising… food sustains life. Since eating is necessary, even onRead More →

Next to the Nativity Scene, angels are probably the most common religious symbol of the Christmas season. Many Christmas songs refer to them: Hark the Hearld Angels Sing, Angels We Have Heard on High, Angels From the Realms of Glory and It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, just to nameRead More →

  Tim and I have had one of those rare weekends that we stayed home… alone. Doesn’t happen often, and it is also the beginning of a week long vacation for Tim. YAY! Being behind after the trip to the kids, I finally got Halloween put away, and we decidedRead More →
