Beads and wire, and a little mania


Little Hen and I have been very busy the past two days working on Christmas gifts.  It may have, um, gotten a little out of hand.



After a little mishap in which a certain little boy decided it would be hilarious to fling beads all over the living room while I was in the basement switching the laundry over, we have been beading until our fingers blistered (no joke!).


If you’re a female relative, you just might be getting some earrings for Christmas.   We also made some pendants and beaded bookmarks for those without pierced ears.  (Shh.  Forget I said that.)   🙂

So, the first wave of intense Christmas present-making is done!  And now to work on some edible treats (We’re thinking of tackling hot cocoa mix and homemade marshmallows tomorrow.)

  1. Will you pass on your recipe for hot cocoa mix? I found a DIY chai mix to make, but have yet to settle on a cocoa one.

  2. I’m with Dana! I’d love a recipe for hot cocoa! I also love your earring inspiration… I have the beading supplies, I just need to make time. Only. 11. days. till. Christmas. ACK!!!
