  1. Hello! You did a very nice job of making these cuties! Susan, you are so great! It is very commendable that you can even make something cute and cool out of something inconspicuous. My kids this year finally wanted to do something with their own hands when I showed them your post! Thank you very much for that. Now, when the attendants buy wine for myself, I also buy a toy for my children, isn’t that cute?)) I think I would never have thought of this)))
