  1. So many cute ideas. I love the handprint wreath Just a helpful tip avoid salt dough ornaments with dogs. I had a friend lose her pup this week after eating five off them off the tree. Extremely toxic levels.of salt in them…which caused neurological issues that were irreversible for their pup. Not to be a Debbie downer..I just never realized that and we have made them often.

      Thank you so much for your note Megan! You are so right about that salt dough and I have put a note on that project just reminding people who have pets. I’m so sorry that your friend lost her pet. That is just heartbreaking to hear 🙁

      Have a wonderful Christmas sweet Megan! xo

    Games with a piece of paper and some other things are great fun for kids. I Love teh cute ideas nad the hand print.
    I really like making many things hand-made. I’ve started from scrapbooking cards. You can also make Christmas decorations with your kids when it’s snowing outside. They are original and just yours.
