My sweet Christmas Gift

Why am I talking about a Christmas gift now? I was just too lazy before, but I really wanted to share this one. My Hubby often makes me gifts. Two of my past favorites include a little carved charm and a hammer cozy. In college Ibought a nice planishing hammer. I was afraid the surface would be marred, so he made a cozy with a leather cup on either end and elastic in the middle. It was perfect! This year he and the kids made me a game. I love board games!

It is so nice, especially since they worked on it together. It is a maze or labyrinth type. Each turn you decide to move your pawn or set up a blocking wall. The wood was milled over 50 years ago when my Grandparents were remodeling their house. The kids helped drill the holes and they picked out the pawns (marbles). Emma had sewn the bag for the pieces. This is a keeper!

baby it's cold outside!

I'm feeling soooo much better. It must have been the flu. It came on so fast and now I'm just tired. I'm getting everything ready for this weekend.
I know it will be very cold, but please come to the Dells for the
Flake Out Festival

Yes it will be cold, but there is arts and crafts inside...activities for kids.
Then brave the cold for a while and enjoy the ice carving and snow sculptures!
This is January in Wisconsin so it will be cooooold!

5x7inch collage on recycled bubble envelope

I'm sick, I feel horrible! Hopefully it doesn't last too long because on Sat and Sun I'll be in Wisconsin Dells for the Flake out Festival. Arts and crafts, sledding, food, ice sculptures, the works. If you stop by my booth, I promise not to cough on you *grins*

I'm so out of it I just realized I put 2007 for the watermark on the top two collages! Back to sleep. I think...the kids are also home sick.
