Kyanna's Secret Santa exchange

This year during school, my daughter and her classmates were assigned to be Secret Santas for their classmates. So we got lucky and she had a female classmate. (Girls are so much easier to shop for), and she got a list of what the girl would like. So as you may see in the photo we got some fingernail polish and design gems for her nails each in pretty bags with toppers. Then Kyanna made her an easel Christmas card and decorated a gift bag. Kyanna had so much fun and she hopes the girl will appreciate the work she did in customizing her gifts verses just placing it in a paper bag. My daughter has made me proud, she has turned into someone who understands the way of giving.
Kyanna was too excited to be a Secret Santa. She observed me gathering up and making things for my secret santa and the big box I received from my secret santa all through yourpaperpantry.ning. And so she was happy that she was able to do something like this as well.

Duck tape wallets by a 9 y-o boy

Oh it feels like forever since I have posted anything through blog and YT but I have been under the weather and just haven't felt like doing anything. Everyday is better and better and now I need to push myself and get back to work. I wanted to share with you, not my work but I love to display what my kids do as well so today I want to share what my little boy's hobby is as of now involving crafts. He started making duck tape wallets. He loves them and walks around with such pride. We have tons of wallets, different colors and styles. He doesn't do anything with them but just makes them. He told me he wanted to make a large amount of them so whenever I have a craft show he can sell his wallets for a dollar. My little business man. LOL. Here is his latest one. This Christmas themed wallet. He even cut out white tape to represent snow and to spell ho ho ho. Love his thoughts as he works. Thanks for letting me share my pride with you all.
