Budding beauties

The twins spent the weekend before Mother’s Day with us while our daughter and son-in-law went away for the weekend.  I thought I’d help the girls make cards for Mother’s Day.

I took photos of them pointing to their eyes, a paper heart taped to their chests and the camera.  Then I made an accordion card and added some text and headless flowers.

The card wasn’t ready for them to take home (and I didn’t want them to know everything about it as one of them can’t keep a surprise) so I mailed it to our son-in-law.  I had to talk to him first so he knew what to do with it when he got it.

I included various flower and bug stickers for them to use to decorate the cards.

I think they did a wonderful job!  Their mom was so surprised!

Crafting help

Icy driveway and roads have me at home today.  If it warms up, I may try to go to work.  Yeah, right.

My daughter-in-law, 5-year old grandson, one-year-old granddaughter are coming this weekend.  It’s cold and the ground is covered in crusty snow right now and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be much better for the weekend.

I need some crafty help.  Do you have some suggestions as to what we can do craft-wise to entertain them?

This is one of the main reasons I want to have my own craft room instead of using the kitchen and stopping everything to fix a meal.

I thought about making Valentines.  Maybe Bishop needs some for his pre-K classes.  (Yes, his name is Bishop.  I love it.)  Anyway I can make stencils that he can use with cotton ball dauber to make cards.

I also have those clear flat glass “rocks”. We can glue pictures to the bottom and make magnets.

I also saw a project from Martha with crayon shavings, waxed paper, and an iron.

Any other ideas?
