Second Day of Christmas

When I was in high school many, many years ago I discovered paper quilling, and quickly fell in love. Fast forward years later, and I still enjoy playing with paper. I have done enough projects to warrant owning an old school paper cutter (like the one you might have seen in schools) which lives under my couch. I pulled it out, cut some strips of paper and got curling. My youngest son also got in on the action and is working on his own. I also used my new favourite crafting toy to cut the vinyl letters spelling Noel.

First Day of Christmas

I have legitimately lost track of how many years I have been crafting through the holidays. I remember making Christmas presents and decorations when I was still in the single digits, so it’s been a very long time. I started blogging about it at some point in the last 10 years, and today marks the First Day of Christmas crafts for 2020. What a year it has been!

Who else thinks the winter will be long and many days will be spent indoors? I certainly do and I am planning to spend the time becoming an expert with the new crafting toy I bought myself. Any other Cricut users out there? I tested it out my new cutter making this “Oh Quaran-Tree”ornament.
