I’m not sure why the nightly and morning check-ins. Seems like overkill, but, sure, I’ll throw something new up here while I have a minute just so it’s not a fruitless visit.
Anywho, this is something I got into when quarantine *first* started. As soon as we got word the schools were shutting down and we were going on quarantine, it was a mad scramble to stock up on crafts and activities for everyone. I am currently WAY backlogged on puzzles and ‘i wanna try that‘ art supplies because before I got sick this spring I was cranking these “minis” out like crazy. Believe it or not, they are a great anxiety tackler and perfect for people who like process projects. I’d wanted to try them for ages and had a couple kits saved away in my Forbidden Cabinet of Mystery for a while. When the world shuts down…no better time to try hobbies you claimed not to have time for before! (Except paper quilling….I haven’t had the nerve to bust out that stuff yet)
I wanted to do this one while we were on vacation this summer but I got sidetracked with those damn diamond painting things. My daughter made me try them and it became yet another dexterity activity for the Tremor Twins that we have a lot of fun with and is also extremely peaceful. So, now, after we have both worked all day, she does her animation projects and my plan is to start this this evening as my first Christmas project of the season (SHRIEK). The only downside to some of these kits is that they come from China or Japan and the English translations are…challenging at times. My favorite so far has been “use much patience to join both“. When it comes time to cut and glue this jolly but miniscule banner, it’s going to require some minor surgery in order to display the proper greeting.
Although…I don’t know. A Merry Christmas *is* for everyone! So I just may keep it. So excited!
Be well, Friends
