Merry Christmas, dear friends!
Our Savior was born! We had a very full year and December is always a challenge. So with years comes wisdom, now if I want to make some special Christmas party for friends, I do it early, in the first half of December. Because many people get too busy before the New Year, some leave the city, others get sick. So the closer it gets to the end of the month, the lower the chances are that we can get together... I had a Christmas party for our friends. We closed our English club for a holiday. We read a story of Christ's birth, solved Christmas puzzles, made a Candy Cane craft and had a gingerbread tea party.
With homeschooling 3 sons this year, I feel more responsibility to do it well. One of my sons has had an eye trauma. He has to wear a patch for 6 hours a day. I need to be creative how to teach him, as he can not read or write while he is training his weak eye. He is more patient now, but I was very hard on us at first. I encourage him by saying that from an early age God is building his character.
We have celebrated Christmas today at our church. We've had a wonderful celebration.
I managed to carve some time for crafting. I colored some pieces ahead of time, so I could just finish cards when I needed them. I have revisited some of my designs. For the first time I have made a 3-d dear card. Why have not I thought about it before? The new Hero Arts Candy Cane cling rubber stamp. It looks pretty cut into a frame. I am not quite happy with the embossing powder falling off. I will need to look for other red ep.
I have made Bible memory gift cards with Isaiah and Micah's prophecies on Jesus' birth.
Some more Christmas cards and tags with Bible verses inside.
