A crappy parent does crafting

It's Christmas!

Time for heartwarming sessions crafting with the boys, right?

Sweet, candlelit, gingerbread scented moments of glitter, glue and laughter.

Beautiful gifts to hand out to beaming relatives. 

Here's how it went:

The plan:

Stupid Pinterest.

How easy could this be? Kiddo's fingerprint, a little sharpie work and viola! A cute keepsake for beloved relatives.

How it went down:

Fingerprints? No, mama. 

The fingerprint plan was quickly abandoned.

The children began to paint the ornaments any which way.

I had given them red, green and white paint (Christmas colors, yes?) but the wee one insisted on brown.


Very festive. A brown ornament is a lovely addition to any holiday decor.

And finally:


And we're done!

Fa la la la la. La. La. La. LA!

Happy Holidays!
