It’s been a somewhat crazy week. I’m doing a bunch of sewing for Market at the moment, which means I can’t show much (yet) – other than a pile of scraps – because the new-ness is not mine to share. But I did get to play with some of this already with more fun in the works.
While trying to stay engaged with the kids during the massive sewing binge going on, I’ve also been letting the kids exercise their own creativity. I received a copy of Marie Lebaron’s Make and Takes for Kids book at the SNAP conference a couple of weeks ago and my kids have LOVED it. Highly recommend if you’ve got young kids.
In the process, we have created a great many messes. And all of that needed to be cleaned up today because we had a big extended family celebration. This guy turned 8 last week and today he was baptized by his dad. Happy times! I wish I could freeze him right now – I love those freckles and that jack-o-lantern smile. It was so nice to have a happy family day. Back to the mess on Monday.
