I loved when Marilyn over at artsygirl contacted me with her totally fun November plan. For the next three weeks I am going to get my craft on once a week and make my way through a bunch of projects that I’ve been dying to do. For those of you who have been following this blog for awhile you will know that I am not a natural crafter. I am a natural shopper. If shopping were an Olympic sport I would be a triple, gold medalist.
This is a way for me to craft with the wee one AND look beyond the reno. It’s just been taking up WAY too much of my head space the past many months. I’ll slowly be sharing ‘done’ photos of the spaces as I primp but I’m waiting until the builder bids us his final adieu to do that.
This week I decided my ‘Frugal Fancy Craft’ would be something that the kiddo and myself could get in on the action. Christmas Cards.
Let me explain here. I’m a Canadian and we do our Thanksgiving in October so I’m going to slightly alter my posts to have more of a get-my-act-together for Christmas theme. Who knows? This year I might actually be ready well before the 24th. 🙂
The wee one is enamoured with paint, I’m enamoured with her chubby little paws and I’ve been seeing some adorable cards etc. on Pinterest that incorporate both into lovely cards. I’m going for a bit of bling soo…
I found round cards that were cut into puzzle pieces. Wee one picked out the sparkly paint and the shiny stickers.

What a wonderful idea. The people who get these will get a real treasure.
I'm not sure who had more fun making them, her or myself?
