Valentine Boxes for the Second Grade Set
The teachers asked the kids to make their own valentine containers for school again. The valentine projects themselves were kinda kicking my hiney, so I left the kids to their own craftiness on the containers. As you can see, R found a shoebox, mod podged tissue papers and cute old valentines we had found via One Pretty Thing and The Crafty Crow. Didn't it turn out cute? Super easy too (thank goodness!)
S, of course, had to get more involved...but thankfully he enlisted his father's help.
Those boys still have bees on the brain. They took an old milk jug, spray painted it and then constructed wings and a head from another milk jug and pipe cleaners. Turned out pretty dang cool, I think.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
