Crafty Wednesday

CW – Pasta Scene

This was an interesting craft and a bit time intensive even for a toddler with a good attention span and healthy urge to see things through. First, we had to plan out the scene. Next, we had to paint the …

Creative Happy Birthday

You may have read in some of my other posts that I very much dislike commercial “Hallmark” greeting cards. I love art cards and homemade cards, complete with a personal message inside. Though I will admit that I’ve on occasion …

CW – Art-folio

Here are some chocolate cupcakes with fondant flowers. Craft Wednesday actually took place on Monday this week so that Meebs could share her cupcakes with her daycare friends the next day for her birthday. What better craft than one you …

CW – Hungry Caterpillar

Our next Crafty Wednesday project is Hungry Caterpillars. Lots of washable paint, egg cartons, googley eyes and pipe cleaners. I did the cutting and Meebs did the rest. The best in messy fun. Tip: pick up some cheap plastic table …
