To keep the little people entertained, the girls and I melted down crayons to create alphabet crayons. The idea came from One Charming Party, and charming they are. Really, go there right now. You won't be dissappointed.
I know you get the idea, but I can't help show another picture. Just so pretty.
I also created giant pom poms for decor out of newspapers. Patterned after their tissue paper counterparts, just a bit heavier. Go here to see how. Of course Martha's minions deserve the real credit.
