This was the first year that I had to do a craft projec for Teresa take to school.
It was asked for parents to make a Xmas decoration with a kid sock and with a Christmas message.
Sounds simple doesn’t it? The truth is that it took me days to decide what to do and then even more days to make it, and today finally Teresa took proudly, her socks to school.
I guess my big problem was coming across a good half dozen of already ready socks in the next day, they arrested my inspiration in the symbols of Christmas. I thought of angels, trees, stars, Santa…
And then I decided to keep it simple and make not one but two socks as a symbol of sharing, unite them with a ribbon as a symbol of the family, and sprinkle them with small sequins like if the socks were a Christmas tree. The pompoms aside always make me remember the wool socks and therefore were required element.
Who knew that a project so simple could be so complicated! But I was happy with the result, and so did she.
