Crafting with Kenzie
Onward into summer, it appears that we need at least a craft project per day now that it's blazing hot outside. We've got an arsenal of craft supplies, on the ready.
For The place where little and big art meet we had much begging to do another collage. Each week, I keep wondering when we might waver from the animal theme. Not this week. A "rhinoceros" she said. "Oh, and some flowers."
Painting and each flower handstuck by Kenzie. Wonky Rhino, who's missing a horn by Mama.
And some handmade critters of the foam variety. This time, we (I) managed to get all the body parts in the right place.
I do have some real crafting going on too...but it's progressing painfully slowly. After earmarking several tutorials and proceeding without caution on each of them -- I of course, make really stupid mistakes early on. Take shirring a shirt for example: it is indeed KEY to use long stitches as the instructions clearly warrant. Except I tend to read the tutorial, wait 2wks.. to perhaps ..7 months before starting the project - and forget such excellent advice. I get frustrated, walk away -- and start something else.
Perhaps I should stick to kid crafts for awhile....
