Hello fellow bloggers. We had our family Chanukah party tonight and the kids and grandkids excelled themselves in the mess making department. I've just finished cleaning up and have finally sat down with the last of the wine.
All the presents were much appreciated except the one we got for DS3. Nothing's ever good for him. There's always something wrong with what we get him. Still he's the youngest so he's a right brat and there's plenty of the green eyed monster in him where the grandchildren are concerned.
Anyway back to the presents. I couldn't find the perfect wrapping for the ponchos I knitted so in true crazy fashion I made the box and wribbon myself. There's a little tutorial on how I made the ribbon and flower for the box and you can see it below.
DD2 was born on Chanukah so we had a birthday to celebrate too. She's a crafter too so I bought her crafty stuff both for her birthday and for Chanukah. he was suitably chuffed and also loved her birthday card
