The coats, the toddler dragging, the wind, the slush, it was all enough for me to call off any future notions of leaving the house. Thankfully the plumbing stepped in and allowed that dream to become a reality. We haven't had functioning sinks or a dishwasher for a few days and the plumber swears he's coming this morning. He'd better - I don't ever have a bra on this early in the day and I don't want all that effort to be wasted.
In the meantime, I have to direct you over to Design Mom and her rockin' sibling gifts. She has six kids and, as the title might suggest, a penchant for design, so she has her kids make each other their gifts for Christmas. And these are no macaroni necklaces, these are great projects, very cheap and easy, with beautiful results. You could absolutely do these as an adult. She hasn't posted all of them yet, but my two favorites are the bleached out t-shirts and the monogrammed hot chocolate mugs. Enjoy!
