Finley and I endeavoured to make twenty or so Valentines for his classmates.

I cut a heart out of a piece of cardboard that we used as a stencil.

Finley did most of them, but ran out of stencil steam by about 15 cards in... I was happy to do the rest.

After letting the paint dry for a while, we revisited the project with another fun activity: rubber stamping! This day-long card-making project turned out great and we were all proud of Finley's effort and concentration.

I'm not immune to the pom pom craze that is sweeping Pinterest. So I made this garland that will look nice through Christmas and into the new year.

Washi tape is becoming my duct tape. It saves the day in all sorts of sticky situations.

elephant

Added on by Janine.

One evening last month, I made this elephant softie. He looks simple enough and required just a few hours from sketching out a pattern to stitching on his button eyes. Of course if I consider how long I'd been saving the fabric and that I had intended on sewing a little animal for Finley when he was first born... then this elephant took just over two years.
