Every year I commit to a new green pledge. Usually they are simple and pretty easy to stick to. A couple years ago I decided to stop purchasing gift wrap. I reuse wrapping paper, brown paper bags and newspaper comics. This year I discovered a new super easy Holiday craft thanks to Pinterest. On Pinterest someone used torn pages from a book to decoupage round ornaments with. They looked so sophisticated with silver glitter.
But I'm not very sophisticated. Ha! Plus I didn't want to destroy any books. So I used more newspaper comics. Gotta love Snoopy. And I already had some old boring plastic apple ornaments. I may have gotten a little glitter crazy. But you get the drift. It's just decoupage. So easy a kid can do it.
Now I have a couple links to share. The first is a link to this year's Tomie de Paola contest. At www.scbwicontest.blogspot.com I illustrated an excerpt from, "The Yearling" in pencil. Wish me luck!
And I also have a link for Leontien at A Rural Journal Holiday cards are being sent to brighten her Holiday season as she battles cancer.
