A coupe of weeks ago, Jana sent me the link to these fun "fairy houses".

Knowing that I had two little people coming to visit me soon that would just love this sort of thing, I began stashing the empty water jugs before they made it to our recycling pile. I carefully cut out doors and windows, looking forward to decorating them with colored sharpies, stickers, pipe cleaners and such. I knew that we would fashion the most amazing fairy houses ever!!
Things took a slightly different turn when I got sick. Yesterday, when I returned from my 4 hour episode at the Quick Care clinic, Ron greeted me, then handed me one of the jugs, explaining that they had decorated them while I was gone.
Hmmmmm, not exactly what I had envisioned, but it does look like they had fun. Reminder to self: it is the process that matters, not the outcome!!
Perhaps my next craft would go a little differently. This afternoon, when M began bringing in acorns from outdoors, I did a quick check on Pinterest for ideas and both he and A decided they loved the idea of making "acorn babies". They were making a trip to Hobby Lobby anyway, so I asked them to pick up a few squares of felt knowing that I already had some tiny wiggly eyes we could use.
While A took a nap, M and I set to work. We cut tiny blankets and using the glue gun made a set of acorn babies for each of them.
We even used the leftover felt to make baskets to carry them in.
Next up, an acorn covered picture frame---of course, that may have to wait until after I take a nap. All this crafting has pretty much wiped me out!
