Crafting for The Today Show
This week has been filled with intensive crafting for a Family Fun segment on The Today Show that is coming up (next week, I think). One of the Top Editors is heading down to New York to show off the different things you can make with your kids for the holidays and I am making those things. I have to say, it has been a great week of crafty fun. I became practically addicted to making these Tree Placecard Holders. It was a good thing, because I had to personalize them for the host's children and various other children that will be on the show. Harry ended up making one yesterday as an ornament gift for a pal of his.
I don't know if I have ever linked to Family Fun for crafts. I love working for them and I think it is a great magazine for families. If you haven't seen it before, you should pick one up sometime. And, it only costs about $10 a year to boot!
Despite my work as a crafter, I don't craft with my kids as much as I would like. I am embarrassed to think about all of the times I have said (possibly sharply) not to touch what i am in the middle of styling for the magazine. But now it is the holiday season and all of that changes. We have things to make! I set my kids up and we craft a ton and I couldn't be happier. I'm not sure why we don't make gifts for people we love all year long. It feels so good at so many levels.
If you need a good holiday gift that kids can make, head over to my other blog Improv Diary for a decorative wooden spoon idea. And it involves a wood burner, so your kids will love it!
