I am so antsy for spring I feel like I am going to burst! I look forward to tonight having extra daylight hours after dinner. If it doesn't rain maybe we can take a walk. I love walking with the family after dinner. This weekend we had some nice quiet crafting time together, the kids and I. We occasionally buy Frapacinos and when we do I save the bottles. This is a craft we have done a few times- every one can do it and it is so relaxing because you have to take your time so you don't tear the wet tissue paper. All it is is small squares of tissue paper and origami paper stuck to the bottle with a good coat of modge podge. We have candle holders we have done this way too.

We have a house full of kids today- ours and 4 extra. I had my design board in the living room and my daughter and her friends wanted to play with it so we put it horizontally on the ground and I gave them my plastic tub full of scraps. An hour and a half later they are finally taking a break. They made a back drop and took photos of each other in front of it and just had a really good time playing with the scraps and magically having them stick to the board. I love that they were so inspired by all the fabric and putting them all together. Going to eat a quick lunch and get back to playing with it!
