Experiment a Success!!

I've been trying a bit of an experiment and to my utter excitement it worked and I'm thrilled!!
 I love working with all different materials and textures, sometimes they work and sometimes not but it's always a learning experience. I'm hoping to get going on some paper, I've got some dried flowers I want to use. Oh and my Pink Project is still a work in progress, I leave it on my craft table and look at it several times throughout the day to get ideas, it's coming along just have to rethink a couple ideas.  Have a Great Evening...

First Day Of School

We started our school year on Monday the 1st. This is Claire's 1st day picture!  She was so excited to start school again and has really stayed focused, she's growing in so many ways already this summer and is my little helper in the kitchen and really likes to help cook. She loves to get things out of the refrigerator and help set and clear the table.

We read some Haiku today out of a beautiful book I was given from my sister, and will see about writing some of our own.  We looked at trees, and the other typical school things. Actually I was ready to start again to.  Happy 4th to all!  Wendy

A LIttle Annoying!

Is anyone else getting all these adds when ever you go online? They always appear in the bottom right corner ???  This just started happening, does everyone else get these too?

Friends I made this past fall for Claires school!

While at my brother and sister in laws house last fall I worked on puppets for Claire for our travels around the world, she really enjoys interacting with the puppet of the month ( for whatever country we are studying.) This month starts our journey to Japan! will keep you posted on our adventures as I have a lot of things planned!

The countries I have represented so far are China, Japan, Ireland, Netherlands, Mexico, I had so much fun making them and  already have a couple ideas for a few more.  Each of the puppets is holding or wearing something to represent what we did or will do... Ireland we planted shamrocks, China, we made lanterns, Netherlands, we went to the Holland Michigan Tulip Festival, for Japan we will make a doll, and for Mexico we will learn the Mexican Hat dance! We also make a food, watch a movie, learn a song etc.  Can't wait to share our adventures with you!!!   Wendy
