Crafty inconsequential randomness in all its glory

Mrs. Z was looking for a fast Thanksgiving-ish themed lesson for art.
I have always liked this turkey project from Art Projects for Kids and boy do I have a LOT of cardboard saved.
Very simple and fun. Cut out turkey shapes from recycled cardboard boxes. Glue them together, layering your shapes. Add googly eyes. Because really googly eyes make everything better. (Don't you love this student found a cheese cracker box that had glasses on a character on the box and he used that for his turkeys head. Cracked me up!)
And then - (I'm not really sure how we came up with this)- Mrs. Z and I decided they were using their turkeys to make a slogan about how recycling is important. Mrs. Z is always trying to tie writing into all her projects and we thought the recycling angle was a good point. Whatevuh!
Funny turkeys, that's for sure. And I ain't talking about the artwork!
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!
