Inspired Christmas Crafting and MOPS

Between participating in the homeschoolers’ Christmas program at the nursing home and hosting the MOPS Christmas Brunch and enjoying the Bunco Christmas party and taking Peter to Omaha for some testing and accompanying Tim to a Christmas Bird Count and celebrating Christmas with Mom and Dad and playing music for the Christmas program at church, last week fairly flew by. There was some crafting involved, though. One big, fun crafting project involved making 32 yo-yo Christmas trees for the MOPS brunch, inspired by Amy Powers and her fabulous e-book!

And then each MOPS mom and MOPPETS worker got to take one home as a favor.

Thanks to Amelia, the decorations at the MOPS Christmas Brunch were fun and festive…and I got to craft a little!
