A Little Bit of Crafting
We had a fabulous time looking at all our photos and talking about the food and the kids had a grand time playing. Now, one of the things that usually happens when I'm around Misty is that I get inspired to do art. One of the things I have always loved about Misty is our mutual interest in arts and crafts. She is always doing something - hair clips, painting, sketching, jewelry, household decorations, etc. Last Summer after seeing her sketch I started sketching again and it's been really fun. I'll have to post pictures of that later.
Anyway, this time after I came home from her house I decided to make some spring decorations. I headed off to Michaels and the Dollar store. I got 2 stems of silk flowers for $1/each, a grapevine wreath for $4.50 at Michaels; and I got some foam eggs (10/Pack) and birds (2/pack) at the Dollar store. With a little bit of hot clue and some ribbon and raffia these are what I came up with. It only took me a total of an hour and half and it was pretty fun. :o)
