The snow will soon be on it’s way mommies…no way around it. To cope with this harsh reality after such a gorgeous Autumn, we suggest you get into the Holiday spirit early. How are we diving in? By crafting our little hearts out with our kids. Our best find so far? The Winter Wonderland Stencils by Alice Stevenson from Chronicle Books. Her stencils are so perfectly classic…just what you think winter and Christmas should look like. We love the old fashioned mittens and the frosty snowflakes. The stencils were created with decorating windows in mind, but they make really sweet Christmas wrapping paper designs too. Alice’s straight forward instructions and tips on how to use your new stencils. Even beginners like us were able to make some very impressive cards wrapping paper if we do say so ourselves. Can’t wait to try it out on the windows on a nice snowy day.
