12 Days of Christmas (Day Seven)

Welcome back to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop (Day Seven)! This hop will take place  November 24th through December 5th. Each of us will be posting something Christmas related each and every day at 8:00am, Eastern time (so for my Pacific Time Zone peeps... that's 5am... But don't worry, you can sleep in, and we'll all be here waiting for you, too!)... for 12 WHOLE DAYS! Let us inspire you to finish up that layout, make some special Christmas cards, or wrap that gift in a fun and festive way. If you've already started, you probably came from Barbara. She is so awesome, isn't she? Let's continue this 12-day crafting party!

Alrighty now and again...  I've said in Day One, I'm starting my portion of the hop with paper things. Things that are simple and easy to do. As with Day TwoDay ThreeDay Four, Day Five, and Day Six... We are still with the Christmas things meaning all things Christmas! and still with simple [paper] crafts. Today, though... I'm stretching it a tad still. We are still decorating for Christmas in my house. "What does that still have to do with it?" you ask... Um.. Cardboard or Papier Mache that's French for paper mache... is still paper, right? Right. I guess I'm not stretching it that much. And that's ok, too.

The ornaments went up today. And my 10-year-old pointed out all the ones she'd made. One of them being the paper mache spoken of above... She let me know that she is crafty, too. And she could make one of my projects. Hmmm... I told her to pick out her most recent... (lol!) And she gave me THIS:
I love Girl Scouts. And my daughter does, too. My older girls played sports... softball then swimming (remember... I'm a swim official/referee? I've posted funky fun pics...) My 10yo doesn't prefer sports... so I enrolled her in Girl Scouts. We do so many fun things together. She created this at a Girl Scout Christmas party she was invited to...
 She glued on paper, cut it up... glued on buttons, used part of the paper as a closed mouth, glued on googly eyes... Then she tore a candy cane she says that is a "bite" out of it and glued the candy cane down.
She and I hope you enjoy it. And thank you all for letting her help participate in the 12 Days of Christmas!

Now don't do too much damage at Cyber Monday! I won't... still waiting on that dang bankcard!

Remember... There's more in store for you, so hop along and please comment on each and everybody. 'Cause you know we all love a little love...
