Make Your Own Snow Globe.

PHOTO.jpgAlthough Christmastime isn’t solely about gifts, I know that in North America, they do play an integral role. Gift-giving can get incredibly expensive, incredibly fast. This only adds to a person’s stress level at Christmas. My solution? To make your own gifts! I’m not implying that you should make all of them, but there is usually a certain someone (or two) who would cherish a handmade rather than store-bought present.

IMG_2.jpgAll that you will need for this snow globe is:

A jar

Twine/ribbon/string

Some sort of lovely trinket/photograph

Sparkles

Water (optional)

IMG_3.jpgSo if your family is as big as mine, or even if it isn’t, or if you’d like to do something a little different for Secret Santa this year, why not make your own gift? (And then post a link in the ‘Hello Comments’ below!)

Next week I will have another Make Your Own … This time, for the food enthusiasts in your family!

  • I was intending for this video to only be in my stories. After watching it again and again, I decided to post it in my feed as well. I wish to never forget moments like these. Remy’s typical game of asking to go in her crib only to throw everything out of it and pretend to go to sleep. Or her new one- taking her rings in with her and playing with them (after she throws everything out, of course). She makes me say every colour before going to the next one. Then she stacks them up, gets out, and shelves the toy until we have to repeat the game all over again. I let her make her messes all while trying to spend every waking and spare minute with her. These are our days and rituals. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t wake up with this much energy.
