Crafty?!? No, not me!

Spring has sprung!  At least, it has INSIDE our home, even if it's not so sure it's here to stay OUTSIDE yet.  March came and went in a flash.  So, my next few posts will hopefully get you up to date on the comings and goings of our house. 

Little M loves to do crafts.  Me, I'm allergic to them.  I hate them.  I break out in hives whenever I have to use scissors, or glue, or do anything at all artistic.  Don't get me wrong...I can appreciate when other people enjoy crafty things.  It's just not something I am good at.  At. All.  Nor is it something I enjoy.  However....since M likes doing those types of things, I've been stretching myself. 

Homemade bathtub paints were a HUGE hit!  She painted the entire bathtub! 

Lets make an Easter Bunny! 

The finished project

Baking I can do without hives :)  Little M helped with the pink frosting on the cupcakes.

I love that they do crafts in both Sunday School and Preschool.  It gets me out of having to do so many at home.  Hee, hee.  And I LOVE that she hung this one up herself! 
Thats it for my crafty side, for now.  This month I'm focusing on outdoor activities and tasks.  MUCH more my style!  :)


  1. Sometimes we as moms must stretch ourselves. Me? I hate messes. Like get sick to my stomach, get dizzy and nauseous~ hate messes. So this past spring break when I had NINE kids and ONE adult (ME) tie-dying shirts, it took definite effort to just 'relax' and enjoy making memories!

  2. that bath paint looks like messy fun!!! did it come off ok?

  3. It did! I was a little worried about it staining the walls but it washed right off. I just squirted shaving cream in a muffin tin and then added food coloring to each cup to make the color I wanted. She had 10 colors all together. It was a hit!
