It's that time of year , when my husband takes off with his daughters to do a bit of fishing up north.
While they are in NY fishing, I spend the week with my mother doing crafty things and shopping.
Our craft project this year was paper Christmas trees.
Mother made her tree with scrapbook paper.
It was kind of stiff and the ends didn't curl up easily, so I got out an old curling iron and it worked perfectly.
I made my tree from old sheet music pages.
The sheet music paper was thinner and I used a glue stick to wrap the ends of the paper and give it some curl.
We had lots of laughs while working on this project together and a few burns from the hot glue.
It was simple and fun…the best kind of project I think.
