The 'honey lady' at the saturday market sold me some huge sheets of bees wax so we've been 'rolling our own' and cookie cutting candles, which smell fantastic, even before they are lit.
Last year I kept all the christmas cards we received, which was a lot. This isn't a tradition that seems to be very popular in France, but 'back home' in the UK, it seems to be as popular as ever. So this year I have been cutting them into rounds, punching holes around the edge and simply crocheting with fantasy yarn, through the holes. These then double as gift tags, and as I have left a long loop on them, can also be used as christmas tree decorations.
Yesterday evening I planned on making play dough and felt trees, but the boys were having so much fun with the pink glittery cinnamon smelling dough that we didn't have time for anything else. It was meant to be a deep christmassy red but despite using up a full tube of food colour it stayed pink.

passengers on a little spaceship, and cutting and snipping and glueing to my hearts content,
and making a few more mince pies as these ones got eaten up very quickly indeed!
Oh, and knitting off course!!
