🔸️This is them in a nutshell. He's adoring and she's borderline flattered with a pinch (or more) of irritated. I love watching their dynamic unfold as they grow. It's constantly changing as they do. Link to this Egg Carton Garland up there!

This is what happens when you have a free afternoon, a napping husband and child and an abundance of pom poms and glitter lying around! We made a sparkly #nye headband with a glittery 2018 on top and a lot of pom poms glued on. It didn’t quite turn out as I’d expected and makes Harper look like some sort of extra-terrestrial with it on but she loves it and I’m taking it to mean 2018 is gonna be out of this world! How will you celebrate tomorrow?

Wrapped gifts in packing paper I recycled from someone's moving sale months ago. Now I'm decorating them while we drive to Charleston!

When I first moved to America many years ago I remember scouring the shops with my Mum to try and find Christmas crackers (a British Christmas necessity) but they just didn’t exist. We went home and made our own minus the bangers.
These days you can find them in most of the stores but they can be pricey and filled with junk so I’ve started making simple little crackers with my own kids. We find printable jokes online and candy canes to stuff them with. We use cardboard tubes and wrap them in tissue paper.
They make great last minute gifts for classmates too. Oh the things you can do with the good old loo roll!

Anyone else find potato stamping extremely nostalgic 🙋🏼‍♀️
We love it, especially around Christmas time.
It’s also a prefect way to recycle ♻️ that Amazon packaging paper, for anyone who still wraps presents? 😂 ok ok I definitely wrap presents at Christmas, other birthdays are a different story 🎁 (why is that?!)

❄️❤️🦌Little Reindeer🦌❤️❄️
For the last of our bookish Christmas crafts we selected a new book to us this year called ‘The Little Reindeer’. As soon as I opened this book I fell in love with both the story and the beautiful illustrations and knew we had to find a way to create something to go along with it.
Using cardboard lids I had the children create layered snowy scenes using only black and white paper and printed white book pages. They added a few extra details with red, white and black pens. We built the layers up on cardboard underneath so each layer is further forward than the one before it filling the depth of the lid.
Only one week left until Christmas, are you ready? My kids still have a week of school left thank goodness because I’m still rushing around like a headless chicken 😂 fingers crossed I’m done for Friday.

Así son los empaques de @vueladentro en esta Navidad 🎁🎄 Papel kraft sellos, pintura, cartón reciclado, y una cuerda!

So this fab idea to reuse a grocery store paper bag as a Christmas Stocking came from @kreativshed who shared one recently.
When I spied them I knew I had to cut a bunch of stockings out for the kids to decorate it was such a fun and simple idea plus who doesn’t love the look of brown paper decorated? We added ribbons, Washi tape, pompoms and used our @funchalk pens but anything goes. They turned out so well I think I’m off to make a few more as gift bags for a few last minute presents.

Our friend Shelly of @creatingcreatives is hosting this week’s #getcreativewith WEARABLE ART challenge. Today is the final day to share your wearables so don’t delay (like we did😉).

You already know that the Squirrels and I are crazy about wearable  DIY design so we couldn’t let this rad theme pass us by.
Here are 3 of our favorite up-cycled wearables: Masquerade Masks, Unicorn Necklaces, and Shooting star crowns (that totally double as firework crowns). You can find the tutorials for all of these and many more on the Art Camp site.

We are sharing a BRAND NEW wearable 4th of July DIY in our stories and on our FB page! Speaking of which, are you following artcampla on FB yet? If you are on the Face, pop over to our page and give us a 👋🏼 and a follow! xx
