1. I love the idea of wax seals — my mom had one with a little flower on it that she let me use when I was a little girl sending notes to my pals.

    Thrumming looks amazing! And far beyond my very rudimentary knitting powers, lol.

    For the last few years, my kids have made simple Christmas ornaments for each of their grandparents — we started out just markering on wooden ornaments that had designs printed on them, progressed to stickers, then paint — this year, I found “stained glass” ornaments for them to paint that we’re going to have so much fun with.

    • I figured you would like the wax seals. I know Eva-Joy would. 🙂
      Thrumming is a lot of fun, and honestly if you can knit you can thrum. Maybe you can look for a YouTube video showing how. Or we could Skype. 🙂
      I bet the grandparents look forward to those ornaments every year. Nothing beats handmade. So many memories for the one making the gift and also for the receiver. That stained glass sounds awesome.

      • Well, I only knit like once a year, though I have a sudden desire to knit myself a huge long scarf like Newt Scamander’s in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, having just seen the movie today and loved it. But I’ll do that and look at some videos — might find some on Craftsy too.

        The “stained glass” ornaments will basically be like suncatchers, but for hanging on the tree instead. Something different and fun!

    Man, I want to look up all your craft ideas. I need to do that soon. I’m jammed packed with sewing for Christmas but we all LOVE to craft here. Wish my time was more for crafting then other things lol.
    We will continue to pray for your family and for Hugo’s health. Thanks for the update. I will update the 3×5 card we have for you all. Going through health issues can be scary but knowing God is walking right there with you helps tremendously.
    I’m going through a painful health journey myself this year but God has given abundant mercy and grace through it all.
