...exactly how I feel! That's why I want to start now.
So -- we start in April then.
Unless I've missed something, we have 2 suggestions of crafts to start with -- candles and small balls for kids. They're both great ideas. What if we have one craft for adult gifts, candles, and one craft for kid gifts, balls? We can post directions for both and people can pick and choose??
Maybe we should post directions and supplies needed now to give everyone time to gather materials??
Who is up to posting candle dipping directions? mountain mom??
farmer mama -- what kind of balls were you thinking of? Felted -- the soap and water method? or like the ball in the book Feltcraft?
I can post a super easy idea on candle making using sheets of beeswax. It is very, very simple.
What do you all think?
(I'm trying to spear-head and organize this, but just let me know if I am not hearing all the ideas out there, etc.)
Oh, and Lala, I like the idea of a craft swap!
(And yes, farmer mama, we are the same person:LOL well, at least, we have a lot in common!)
