Homemade Snowglobes

Yes, you guys were right! 
A penguin snowglobe!!! 
I love it! 
This is the one I made. It is teeny tiny. I will show you again when it is finished. Have to harden it ... and put it all together ...

But wanna see what my daughter made?
Remember, she is only 5 years old!

 I think it is completely amazing!!!

And I swear - I did not touch her stuff once!!!
She did ask me how to do things and I would say stuff like "Try to make a ball first and then make an oval" ... or stuff like that. But other than that - she did it ALL BY HERSELF!

I love the bird she made!
And the sweetest thing ever:
She told me that she wants to give it to her little brother as a Christmas present!
She is such a darling!

Well, back to frantic sewing. Finished a skirt! Hooded scarf almost done. Stickhorse still to be made. Think am going to skip the owl mobile ...
Now I KNOW why it always sais "Santa and HIS LITTLE HELPERS ..." 
How on earth did I think I could pull off making presents withouth them????
Also still baking and cleaning to do. 

Note to self: Stop thinking!!!! You are just gonna freak! SEW!!!!!

That looks amazing, I can't wait to see it all finished.
Your daughter just takes after Mumma! Creativity is such a wonderful gift to give your children and then you have the added bonus of pride in their achievement too!

That *is* amazing -- and if she can do that by herself now, just imagine what she'll be able to manage years from now!

I'm going to have to follow your blog to see how these turn out.
