Monday Make It

I am linking up with Tara for Monday Make-It.  Christmas is my favorite time of year, so I have been busy since Thanksgiving - creating.  It makes me happy.


I dyed pasta and rice for my TK kiddos.  I might have used too much peppermint extract on the rice because my whole house smells like peppermint, lol.  

I made some peppermint playdough for them to play with during Center time.  My kids love playdough, it is one of their favorite centers.


I made myself a scarf because morning duty has been freezing.  I am a California girl, so if it gets below 50 - I am not happy, unless I can stay inside.

I made some sea glass ornaments from all the wonderful pieces that I found in Hawaii.  This one is a wire star with a big piece in the middle.

I made a few sand dollar ornaments.

I made a few Santa hats for my granddaughter's "Nightmare Before Christmas" tree.  I bought the pumpkins after Halloween for 20 cents a piece, then knitted a few hats.  She loves her tree.

I have lots of projects to get finished before Christmas.  My brain is constantly spinning with new ideas, plus Pinterest doesn't help.  I can't wait to see what everyone has been making this month.

Pin It!

  3. Pinterest definitely doesn't help. There is not enough time, money, or space in the world to accomplish all I want to accomplish from those pins! I love the peppermint playdough idea! Aren't you smart!!! I bet it smells fabulous!
