It is not beginning to feel a lot like Christmas

It was 80 degrees here yesterday. Call me crazy, but it's hard to get into the Christmas spirit when you are blasting your Christmas tunes with your sun roof open and still having the AC on. This is the only month out of the year where I prefer it to be cold and I prefer some white stuff to fall on the ground (I almost forgot what it's called since we haven't seen any around these parts for almost 2 years!).
Thank the good Lord for Pinterest, because it has been the only thing that has reminded me that Christmas crafts and decorations are appropriate! I am trying to spread my Christmas cheer to my daughter so we decided to do a craft that I have had pinned for a while. You just put painters tape down on a canvas (Hobby Lobby is selling canvases for $3...you're losing money by NOT buying them) and then have your little one paint all over the canvas. Once the paint is dried, peel off the tape and voila! You have a magical creation! Isabelle's snowflake turned out perfectly, but she wanted to do more colors than just blue. I am a crafting Nazi, so we only did one color, but I think we will do this again and make it rainbow colors and a different design. The possibilities are endless!

You can also do this craft redneck style and use duck tape like we did. It did the job and Mr. T got to feel like he helped out since he always has duck tape on hand.
Come on over and share your idea...I need more things to do. Plus, I feel like I'm actually being productive when I pin things.

I know what you mean! Although I would prefer cold a lot more. We are from the north and really like snow :) Love the craft! I have seen that one!

Your post makes me a little sad :( We are moving from OH to TX next month and all I can think of is how the south doesn't get cold enough or snow.

I love this! We will do one sometime this winter if it ever reaches TX! Hard to think about snowflakes in 80 degrees!
