Arts and Crafts Time

The weather outside has been a bit frightful today so it seemed like a great day for project time.

We took it down a notch though and just did fun Arts and Crafts type projects. Inspired by the hand prints of our children, the early foot prints we did of Annabelle and my young colleague’s marathon of footprinting her little guy I was keen to have a go.

We turned it up a few design degrees from the simple handprints done in our children’s preschool. So armed with a kit from a craft store because its apparently not possible to buy white mix for the big bags of quick mix we set up. The artistic design part was pretty easy to figure out. A heart for love, her footprints and her initials. The rest was icing on cake so to speak as long as the baby cooperated with the footprint part.

That was a quick project so it left time to get back to work on the unicorn mobile. It’s been about 4 months since inception and about time to finish it. Her eye sight and time focusing has increased amazingly so it’s time to give her a mobile.

Momma has a vision and eventually we’ll have it all done. Let’s just say that it gave both of us new respect for fisherman who tie lines and flies. That stuff is hard to see and harder to work with. So we are still working on it.

I also spent some time up in the attic working on a series of special gifts but can’t post that project just yet. I’m pleased with my progress as the deadline is fast approaching.

All in all a very satisfactory easy kind of day except for the part where the Toronto Maple Leafs lost in overtime.



I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.
