Crafting Time – Part 3

And more! See other blogs as well, Crafting Time – Parts 1 and 2. These are still from the pre-teen, early teen days when we had less homework and more spare time ;-).

dsc_9155Sometimes a lazy Sunday afternoon turns into “creative time”. This craft led B to create an entire fishing game with all the fish she made from construction paper and crayons. We all got to take turns fishing in her pond. That didn’t sound right…

.

dsc_9160Grama taught the girls many, many different card-making ideas. They also made a loom out of a cardboard box to do something (I can’t remember, but I think they were friendship bracelets). There was no end to this crafting weekend. B even got up early – on her own! – to keep going. Shocking behavior.

.

dsc_9150Do cookies count as crafting?? Over the years we have baked DOZENS of sugar cookies. We have DOZENS of cookie cutters and DOZENS of special toppings from all sorts of special sources. We even have a number of great frosting recipes from plain sugared to hard-rock meringue.

dsc_9171The girls were taught by an old friend babysitting them once how to KNIT! They each started a lovely scarf and worked on them for quite some time… although they never quite finished. I think we still have the half-finished scarves on the needles in a bag somewhere… Still, it was fun for them for awhile.

.

dsc_9170The girls really do get creative when they have time to be “bored”. On this particular day B decided to start making all kinds of people out of wire, then proceeded to make playground equipment for them and a pet turtle! They’re “polly pocket” sized.

.

dsc_9174The girls went crazy one summer with these window stickies that you do on a sheet of plastic, then transfer to any glass surface. We STILL have them sticking to our old car windows! This one was too pretty to hang up – I wanted to keep it “for all time” in my scrapbook.

.

Again, more to follow… Yes, we do a LOT of crafting around these parts. We could have OWNED a Michael’s by now.
