Well, I have lots of Christmas crafts I haven’t had a chance to blog about yet, but I’m really happy because I just survived a few hours of jewelry-making, in spite of my splinted broken left wrist. My hand is tired, my whole body is tired, my pace is much slower than before, and the handle of the pliers kept trying to work its way under my splint–but I’m still thrilled I won’t have to wait to play with shrink plastic craft ideas until February.
Here’s what we made today. The flower ones are cuter in real life (and good lighting); they spin on their pin and are bright and light. Mabel made the disks for the bracelet and I assembled it, and she’s also been helping the kids make rings. (You find a finger-sized mold, such as a marker, and immediately wrap the ring around the mold when it comes out of the oven.)
