I just looked back through my blog entries for the past few months and had to say to myself "is this a craft blog or what??" Of course it isn't *just* a craft blog but my main purpose in blogging is to document what I make. Like so many others, it is the process that I love and so it seems that as soon as I have finished something I completely forget about it (especially now that I have terrible mommy brain.) I like to use this blog to remind myself of what I have accomplished.
So, that being said, here are a few things I have finished recently:
First of all, Jack has lately been obsessed with this Richard Scarry book that he got for Christmas. Mike and I both loved Richard Scarry's work as kids and so it is so fun to revisit these books with Jack. In this particular volume, there is a little bug ("Goldbug") that hides on every page and Jack has made it his personal mission to find him. This necessitates the repetition of the following conversation about 100 times per day: "Where's Goldbug? He hidin'. There he is! There's Goldbug!" Please keep in mind that my only role in this conversation is to sit mutely and then express utter amazement as Goldbug is found on each and every page. And I am amazed, sort of. Mostly that this child, who cannot remember what he had for lunch when questioned about it ten minutes later, somehow remembers the placement of a miniscule bug in forty different pictures. But I digress...to celebrate Goldbug and Jack, I made him a t-shirt:
Now we don't even need to have the book open to find Goldbug!
I also have been making some more felt owls and am getting ready for a shop update:
I really love making these guys. They are all handstitched and so each one has it's own personality and expression. They make me laugh.
More projects soon, I promise.
