I painted around the outside edge of each letter with leftover paint from each of their bedrooms.
Project #2: Hairclips, barrettes, and a headband for #3's 8th Birthday. 3 and 4yr.old helped make these.
Some with flowers:
Some with bugs (yes....BUGS!) She loves bugs and thought these were "really cool".
She couldn't wait to wear them to school and see who would be the first one to ask if she knew she had spiders in her hair!
Project #3: Matching horse vests for the "twin cousins"
Project #4: "Leather" vest with tiger "skin" lining for Grandson (he chose the fabrics)
PROJECT #5: An Apron for my sister, the proud mother of a Marine (my nephew) who was in Afganistan 3 weeks ago, but is now in a hospital in San Diego with his back broken in 5 places, 2 broken ankles, some broken toes, and much pain and recovery in his future. The key word here is recovery. He will recover, praise the Lord! Even with all the thoughts and prayers and e-mails and phone calls, I felt like I needed to do something tangible, so as silly as it might seem to make an apron, it was therapy for me to make something for my sister. (Ellen, if you're reading this, I'm bringing it to you on Sunday)
I also spent some time in the kitchen doing some culinary therapy.......I'll post those projects tomorrow.
After cramming all this "therapy" into the last 5 days, I should be the sanest, most well-balanced person around, don't you think???
