Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

There's No People Like Snow People

I was supposed to be doing laundry, ironing, and cleaning house. I was supposed to be helping the mister finish up the guestroom in the basement and washing my car. I was supposed to be making 10 more quilt squares and planting 100 tulip bulbs in the front yard. Instead I was making a big mess and playing with paper mache. It was so much fun!Did I mention it was so much fun?Once I got started, I couldn't stop.
Have you been over to see Joli-Paquet? All month long they're posting festive holiday ideas, recipes, and crafts. Almond truffle recipe today, these snow people a few days ago. It's a lot of fun and more than a little addicting.

They're so cute. I didn't know you could make small things with paper mache.
I am the master of not doing what I'm supposed to. Like right now not bathing the kids and myself for church while their dad's home teaching. Or spending the 5 hours necessary to clean out our van.
I need to go paper mache something.

Oh My Goodness...be still my heart. Those are the cutest things ever, Mimi!!! I am so excited to try some now. Thank you, thank you for the link.
And, what a great idea about the light fixture. It turned out perfect for the new room.
Have a great week,

That is so cute! I'm going to have to show my daughter. She's been working in paper mache for about two months now in her art class. She could make me something - those are so adorable!
