Nap time = craft time

Aside from the absolute quiet that comes over the house during rest time my favorite thing is being able to set up a station somewhere and craft my little heart out. We have lots of fun (and fights and tantrums) in the mornings and there is something oh so special about being able to sit quietly and be restored while crafting and doing. Now if I could orchestrate it so that rest times overlapped every day and no one walked out of their room calling “Mammaaaaaa” down the hallway sixteen times I think that could be a little bit of heaven. 

As it is, I will gladly accept what time I’m able to get!

This week I’m working on cabbages for a Beatrix Potter themed baby shower. 

   
If you have coffee filters, green food coloring or water color paint, a hot glue gun and some styrofoam balls you can make your own cabbages. 

 
  

I can’t wait to team these up with the raffia carrots I bought at Home Goods last year!

Shower is next month so I’ll try to remember to take pictures of the complete assembly. But I think you and I both know that will never happen! I would be embarrassed, but it’s the truth and there’s no shame in the truth.
