I took a break this morning to do some crafts with the local kids. It will most likely be my last time since next week we will be shipping my Dh's car and packing out will start to go into overdrive!
We finished up their shopping bags, made some beaded bracelets, some bookmarks and ate Victorian Sponge Cake (almond cake with raspberry jam - may favorite!.) A good morning all around.
The bookmarks were a lot of fun to make. These are still on the kitchen table waiting for the glue to dry. The girls will pick them up tomorrow. They match the book-bags they made for going back to school...though how many books a 5 year old carries I don't know.... I do know that if your give a 5 year old girl glitter glue pens you have to be prepared to cut some of your dogs hair! (And give the poor pup a long time to recover...) I can tell when Mac is really tired - he snores!
Well, off to spend a couple hours sorting and packing...
