  18. was I supposed to make 2 comments for 2 entries? don't know, but that is probably bc I'm not very good at following directions. elisa.hart.allan@gmail.com

    and to answer your question, I've been sewing a tree skirt and making one of those felt trees for the kids to take ornaments on and off at their whim.

  22. Her headbands are so sweet! I think I would choose the bright flower headband, probably attached to an alligator clip instead of a headband, though. My daughter has a hard time keeping headbands on!
