Craftin'



So, I have had no invitations to assemble lately, and I needed to get some crafting done!

I found this idea on jennwa's blog and wanted to try it. I think it turned out quite cute. All you do is make your child's handprint and use the adhesive reinforcers for paper to make the wool. I added the tails and ears by cutting the circles in half and fastening them together in an oval shape. Jennwa used google eyes, but I didn't have any, so I just painted mine.

I am sending these out to our parents and my grandparents. If you see this ahead of time - SUPRISE - you got a sneak peak! I liked the idea so much that I am doing a plate for myself. I got the kid's handprints made on it last week. Now I just need to make time to go and decorate it. Talk about excited! :o) I will post a picture when it is finished...

Thanks for the Linky love.

Off topic, I was in Macon and Warner Robins from '94 to '01. I worked at 2 vet clinics in Warner Robins.
