This pretty little pouch is currently on its way to a birthday party for one of the girls' school friends.
We made it this week to hold an array of sweet stickers that Nola and Kira made for the birthday girl. I think it can easily be tailored to hold any keep sake from letters to cards or photographs.
See the world through our childrens’ eyes
a world they had a hand in creating
The International Children’s Gallery is a new on-line interactive art gallery for displaying the artwork of children aged 0-13 years old.
From drawings to painting, photography and poetry this lovingly curated gallery helps children to develop a new sense of pride about their art and to feel like a famous artist!
Uploading artwork is quick and easy – I uploaded the girls' pictures in a jiffy and they were so excited to see their picture in a gallery!
To learn more please visit the International Children’s Gallery.
The International Children’s Gallery is the brain-child of Michelle McInerney of Molly Moo. Until now, the gallery has been open to kids in Ireland only. Luckily for all of us, after seeing how popular the gallery was in Ireland, Michelle has created an international forum to display kids artwork.
I've been waiting and waiting like a kid at Christmas for the November issue of Disney's FamilyFun Magazine to come out. And finally, today is the day! 'Why?' you ask. Because I'm in it!!
I was a little giddy when, back in August, the magazine asked me to create a design for their Badges of Fun program. I'm still a little giddy today.
Here is my badge... (Check back later today for a celebratory giveaway!)
The other day the girls and I decided to make slippers. Not so much slippers for keeping warm. No, these are slippers for slipping and sliding down the hallway. Our hallway is about the size of a bowling alley, so we have lots of slipping and sliding kind of days.
Next the girls pinned their patterns onto the fleece and I cut the pieces out. I still haven't let the girls use my big, sharp material scissors - do you? I am still wondering when I should help them use grown-up scissors - I don't quite feel comfortable yet.
It was an exciting day at our house when this beautiful hardcover book arrived. The girls and I opened it immediately and Oohed and Arred at all the clever ideas. Out of all the projects in the book, the girls HAD to have Monster Babies right away and the tiny diaper sealed the deal.
The girls were most insistent on two eyes, big smiles and legs. While each baby monster took a little longer than 25 minutes to make, the project was simple enough for me to chat and the girls never lost interest. I quickly got used to working on such a tiny scale, and found these little guys easy to make and a great use of felt scrapes.
The girls named their monsters Pink and Purple (obsessed? I think so.)
I was not surprised that this simple and sweet project was designed by Holly Keller of Chez Beeper Bebe - a blog I like to visit.
Next on my to-do list are these pretty spool dolls, and like many projects in the book, I think they would make fun stocking stuffers.
And this little Tom Thumb Card designed by Larissa Holland of mmmcrafts is just delightful!
There are so many lovely crafts in this book that I want to make them all - and so can you. Microcrafts was just released today.
*Please note - while I was not compensated for this review, Quirk books did provide me with a free review copy of the book.
