Kids’ Craft Friday

10 May

Today I am sharing some artwork from a library class the big kids took on printmaking. They ended up with some really cool projects!

Pinterest Thursday-Starfish Art

9 May

Back in March, the kids attended Art Camp at Grandma’s.
I gathered the pins and supplies, and she did the art with them.
The kids had a blast, and I think my mom did too. 🙂
I also loved that the kids tackled some of the pins I have been wanting to get to with them, so it was a win all of the way around!
Here is one of their projects:

April Books

7 May

This year, I am on a mission to read more books! My goal is 100, which is ambitious, but I am doing pretty darn good so far, so we will see!
I slowed down a bit this month with all of the end-of-school stuff, but here are the nine books I read in April.
If I have posted a review of the book, I hyperlinked the title for your reference.
1. Funny, You Don’t Look Autistic by Michael McCreary
An insightful, yet humorous read-I read this one aloud with my husband.
2. The Erie Canal Brides Collection by various authors
Didn’t love it, but a few stories were good.
3. A Most Inconvenient Marriage by Regina Jennings
A wonderful read!
4. The Golden Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse
Very good!
5. On A Summer Tide by Suzanne Woods Fisher
I could have skipped it.
6. The Marvelous Mustard Seed by Amy-Jill Levine
Was OK, but I wouldn’t read it again.
7. Crunch and Crack, Oink and Whack! by Brian Cleary
LOVED the pictures in this! The story was really fun too.
8. Spy School by Stuart Gibbs
I read this one aloud to the kids this month. I really like this series, and I don’t even mind reading it again already!
9. Verity by Lisa T. Bergren
SO good. I have been waiting and waiting for the sequel, and it was very good.
That’s all the books for this month, and now I have read 46 books for the year. I’m almost halfway to my goal already-yay! 🙂

Card Monday-Birthday Boy

6 May

Wow. Back in March, this guy turned nine:

I never got around to posting the interactive birthday card I made until now, but I wanted to show it because it ended up being a really fun card.

Supplies: Stamps: Avery Elle; Dies: Lawn Fawn; Markers: Spectrum Noir, Sharpie, Copic
It actually turned out pretty much exactly like what I had in my head, but it did take me three hours to make!
It was worth it though. 🙂
