We've had so many cold, rainy days lately so the kids and I have been bsuy crafting up a storm. I try to do as many of these types of activities as I can with my little guys. Crafting memories are some of the best from my childhood! (Thanks Mommy!)
We made these a few days ago. Thanks to my good friend, Martha Stewart, who posted the template on her blog. These masks were meant to be part of a Hallowe'en party invitiation, but we preferred to use them as disguises!
Bryn and Itraced them onto scrapbooking paper, then cut them out and Afton joined in with the decorating. Even Kevin wore his mask proudly (for a few minutes!)
My friend Julie emailed me the link for the instructions for this darling joke mini-book. I quickly made 2 up the other night while watching "Ghost Whisperer." Appropriate, don't you think? The kids LOVE them and have almost all the jokes memorized - even with some joke infection!
My name is Bronwyn and I am so glad you have stopped by for a visit! I hope you find joy and inspiration in everything you see here. I live with my family in a new, builder-grade townhome in a small city, even though my dream home would be a century old farmhouse in the countryside. Daily I strive to add warmth, "age," and character to our little home. I love to knit, crochet, sew, decorate, bake and go thrift shopping. These are all a wonderful release after my three small children are off to bed each evening. Thankfully, I have a patient and understanding husband, Kevin, who allows me to bring all kinds of crazy things into our home in the the name of "creativity."
