wait a minute; wasn’t it just September? i’ve been going through the motions and here i find myself nearing December in disbelief. Advent begins this Sunday! 2 days and i’m only just a little organized. i’ve many lists to make and more challenging to execute with curious eyes following my every move. Little A wants to believe in the elves so badly and does still to some extent but he wonders if maybe i work for the elves a little. he’s growing so fast – i hope to keep the magic going at least another year! by then he’ll be ready to do some elf work of his own for his little brother i’m sure. i’m not the only one behind schedule. Our Kindergarten classes celebrated St. Martinmas today with a day time lantern walk.
snow in November this year! let the magic begin;
it was a success in so many ways; the set up was smooth and as usual our table was an explosion of color. there was a good flow of people and this year i know so many more parents and little ones so there were ample visits and conversations. there were even gifts of apple buns and chocolate biscotti – mmm. Little M was an absolute dream baby – he was happy, he slept, he charmed – no complaints. Anna was awesome to set up with as always. i love our stuff together and i love her so it was a great way to spend the days.
i love love love these hot water bottle covers – of course they are sold out and i hope Anna makes more for our next event;
so much woolen goodness;
plenty of crowns – i made plenty, sold plenty and have plenty left too;
fun masks and felt garlands;
st. nicholas has a new home.

While Little A is in Kindergarten, Little M and i hang out in the parent room next door. it’s a bright space where mamas and wee ones, too wee for school, hang out, visit and have tea. Come the weekends Little M misses all those mama’s extra arms and cuddles.
The parent room has been bustling the past weeks as we recruit creative mamas to make items for the school table at the Christmas Fair. i feel like there’s been so little time to execute all the great ideas.L has been the super crafter… teaching newcomers this and that while coming up with new ideas for various Fair set ups. She’s awesome.
one of L’s playscape, my weird little gnomey;
Little M gets a good cuddle while i oogle the sweet wee folk necklaces that have been a wip the past couple days.
M loves these – i hope some other little ones love them too.

The Christmas Fair is this weekend folks. Come if you’re local.
