my weekend started friday afternoon around lunch time, when i raced out of work and headed over to the willow house holiday craft fair. the setting was cozy and intimate, and the turn out was great despite the many inches of snow and snarled traffic. true to form, i probably spent more than i made at my table:
i bought lavender sachets from jenn…
saturday night i had the 7th annual holiday pARTy. heather played with clay and made lots of stars and tags. anna worked on her advent calendar. i brought out the ceramic pens, and kathryn decorated plates while ellie drew on tiles to make coasters. jackie and i worked on our christmas cards, and kristin showed a couple of us how to make origami stars. i made trader joe’s gingerbread cake in a DRÖMMAR baking pan from ikea. if you have a trader joe’s near you, go out and buy at least 4 boxes of the gingerbread mix! it’s seasonal, and oh-so-yummy.
sunday i played a game of hockey (score: 0-0). then i painted my toes with gold nail polish. meghan posted her gold toes last week and i couldn’t wait to do mine! my toes are the most festive part about me.
and here we are, monday again. i hope you had a good weekend!
