June 4, 2013 § Leave a comment
Things are busy in our little workshop. It’s O’s birthday on Friday, and we started making her gift a little too late. For his first birthday, J. got an altered book from me, and a collage story from dad. Of course we are doing the same for O. Dad will probably be done by Friday, but I procrastinated. I have lots of good ideas though, so whenever it’s done, it will be good. Here are snapshots of what I have so far:
It will be a book about being strong and powerful, and it will feature all the goddesses that bring blessings and abundance.
J. is also making his sister a gift, a cloth doll. He also just started. This is what he has so far:
And while this is going on, we are also conducting a science experiment, with one of those things that grow in water. We have an ear that looks too real and disgusting! and we are seeing how much it will grow. In the process, J. is getting a lesson about area and counting unit squares.
It’s still growing!
