Now that I have a very busy and interested toddler about the house, I wanted
to do some festive-y crafts to get the holiday mood going.

So today, Iris and I cut cardboard into tree shapes and made some printed
papers, using an apple and some potatoes cut into very simple geometric
shapes. And yes, there’s a triangle, I am a little triangle obsessed after
all.
number-3

We printed little houses, stars and abstract patterns – good cut up for gift
tags I thought!
number-4

We also made some sparkly decorations to hang on our tree. And so for
sparkly, you need glitter and lots of it. It was Iris’s first direct
experience of glitter and there was much, ‘Mummy! Look! I’m all glittery’!

Glittery tree!

number-6
number-7

Glittery apples!

Tiny glittery cardboard star!

number-10

And then, because the newspaper had some funny pictures in it, we thought we
should do this. I think I’ll make some Christmas cards with them!

number-11

You might say we got carried away with the glitter!

God Jul everyone!

Purple has never looked this good before. I want to try it on some of my old black and white photographs.
