Craftin’ & Posin’

Ju went to the covered bridge festival a few weekends ago and brought Katie back some books.  A while back I had asked you guys for some suggestions on books that I could read to the girls and you all came through in a big way!  I wrote each and every suggestion down, so when we are looking for something new to read, I can just check the list.

One of the series that I really loved as a kid was “The Littles”.  Ju found some at the festival and brought them back for Katie.

She was thrilled and decided that she needed to make Aunt Ju Ju something really special.  So we got to work, digging through the craft books looking for the perfect thing to make.  We decided on this little scarecrow.  Isn’t he cute?

And the next series of pictures are all of Hannah.  They’ve all been taken in the last week.  She has suddenly become really concerned with posing when having her picture taken.  It’s her new thing. It cracks me up.

    so cute pictures!! We loved The Littles books!! I think all of my kids (when they were littler) went through a phase of believing little people lived in our walls…because of those books!! If they ever heard noises at night…they would think it was just ‘the Littles’. Have fun reading!!! 🙂

    BTW…where do you get all of your cute little craft ideas? Do they all come from the same book or website?? The only cute ideas I ever find…are ones that take a million different craft items…none of which we ever have!!

    I have 3 old craft books (like from the 60’s) that my sweet Mamaw bought for me at a garage sale. We use them a lot and we just make stuff up sometimes. We have 2 big organizers, probably about 3 ft. tall that have a lot of drawers in them and i basically just throw anything in them that I think might be useful for crafts. (buttons, ribbons, old magazines and greeting cards, etc.) I haven’t actually purchased any craft stuff for probably close to a year.
    I don’t like crafts that are too complicated either. My kids are too little for involved crafts.
    For the scarecrow, we just glued some popsicle sticks together for the body, then cut him some clothes out of felt and some hay for the hair. I punched holes in the top of the paper and we went out in the yard and found a good stick and we pulled some ribbon through the holes and tied them to the stick. It was super easy and very fun!
