That google reader is both a blessing and a curse! I guess subscribing to a gazillion blogs doesn't help either, but my crafting has gone by the wayside of late. I don't think it's completely the fault of my blog reading obsession, but maybe also because we're trying to all get on board with a new sleeping schedule since my little boy started preschool this week.
PRESCHOOL! Not a big deal for some, but HUGE for me. Since he was born, I've gone back and forth on the merits of homeschooling, public school and private school and as the impending date of his school age came closer I'd just been driving myself crazy over it. We've decided at this time, what's best for him is what we're doing, and he LOVES it so far. And when next fall rolls around, there's an elementary school nearby that we'll probably be enrolling him in. He's so into everything science and animals that we think the program will be a good fit for him- it's an Environmental Science magnate school. Some friends of ours had their kids at that school and they really loved it, and from everything they've said about it, it's really sounding like a good fit for our little guy, so as long as we're still living where we do now, that's the plan.
Now, onto the part about what I want to remember- fun crafty stuff.
I'd seen this idea over at Craftzine's blog about making butterfly shaped crayons using a cookie cutter that they got from Daily Danny. Then from someone else (sorry, I don't remember!) I found this idea at Let's Explore of making a crayon alphabet- neat huh! The molds they used are by Sillycone and can be purchased in their store, or pre-ordered at amazon. On the Sillycone website they also have a list of retail and online stores where you can purchase the molds, and what's neat is that they're going to be offering a symbol mold soon too!
I'm always wanting to attemp the freezer paper stenciling and never feel quite comfortable enough. This may change with PanjoKids tutorial, for some reason, I totally understand this one! Then she suggested going over to Sycamore Stirrings to see potholders made from her kids artwork which I did and love! geez, more blogs to subscribe to.
Okay, Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom is just about over now, so back to being mama.
PS My little guy thinks that Marlin Perkins was just the greatest guy ever, and wants to be him when he grows up!
