One of our gifts this year will be handmade, embroidered bookmarks. The kids started working on these Saturday using fabric markers to draw on linen and then embroidered over their drawings. These will then be sewn and turned into fabric bookmarks. The kids really enjoyed learning how to embroider. They are both so patient.
Today we finished our ornaments, worked on some more embroidery bookmarks, and made Peppermint Bark. We split the batch into 4 masonry jars that will be ready for gifting to various family members next weekend (the chocolates stays good for 2 weeks in the refrigerator).
