This is what I asked for for Christmas this year & I couldn't have been happier. No matter what pot holders have found their way into my kitchen over the last 20 or so years the only ones I use are the ones the kids made for me when they were little. The kids are adults now & as you can see from the photo below my old potholders are ready for retirement. Callan made a couple for her apartment, she made me one, I made a bunch & even Joseph couldn't resist and made one.

Another fun & easy holiday project. All you need is plain glass ornaments, we got ours from Michaels art & craft store, acrylic paint & a few little dixi cups. We removed the top of the ornament, poured a little of each color we wanted to use in the neck of the ornament & swirled it around. Once we got the look & coverage we wanted then turn it upside down in a little dixi cup to drain the excess paint. After the paint is dry re-insert the top piece & your done! Easy Peasy!

The day Callan was born I received a gift that lasts a lifetime. She moved into her first apartment in Manhattan this year so it's been an adjustment not having her around, she's so smart & sweet & incredibly talented but most of all she's still willing to be crafty with me! She came "home" for a few days to play with me so that was the best present this year, aside from the potholder loom & giant bag of loops but thats for another day! Here are the ready made porcelain ornaments from Michaels that we painted with paint markers, soooooo much fun to do!
