I never stay up until midnight.
But you know how sometimes you get ideas and you just can't rest until you see them carried out? That was me last night with this Christmas tree that I made for my daughter's room. She loves to "help" decorate our tree, but the control freak in me has to go and fix everything after she's touched it, and that gets old quickly :o)
So I made her this one!
It's double-sided with brown felt and pink polka-dotted cotton, and a layer of batting in between.
With felt and ribbon ornaments to decorate with!
She was absolutely squealing with delight when I gave it to her. I love that feeling when I know I've made something that she'll love!
We've also been busying ourselves making paper chains and pink snowflakes to cheer up her room! Whenever someone comes to our house, she takes them by the hand into her room and tells them "Look! it's pretty!"
