I made it myself

Since some other crazy moms are showing off pictures of the cool stuff they made, I guess I'll play along.

Susie is a crafty kid, and the other night she was in the kitchen while I was cooking. Some of her craft supplies live in our pantry, and she found one of the craft kits she had received as a gift.

Now I'm often the one to say "no" to crafts time, especially around dinner time. Because messy! Little pieces! But somehow I was in just the right mood to say, "Sure! I want to do one, too!"

And we did.

Cool! I think craft time is a great idea. :-)

Very pretty! I love little baking crafts. Like shrinky-dinks.

A little bowl is a home for the earrings that never get to the jewelry box (because they're (a) not precious at all and (b) I wear them frequently). Her little bowl holds jellybeans for now. But they'll be gone soon so we'll have to find something else to put in there. Maybe chocolate.

I'm glad someone guessed correctly because I could not for the life of me tell what they were. I was thinking lapel pins at first, until I saw you and her for size reference.

tres chick.

How fun that you can do things together. My daughter loves to get into my sewing stash.

I love craft time with mine kids!

My daughter's lasted project involved converse...paint and footprints all over a large white t'shirt for a girl scout event.

They turned out very cool...

I totally agree...craft time is usually nixed because it becomes "Horrible mass cleanup by mommy" time.
But sometimes I'm glad I relent and go for it. I'm always happy I did.
WOW, do you two look alike or WHAT?!?!
