Wow, what a week this has been. It is not that anything different happened this week it is just that I didn't have the energy and felt completely scattered all week. This ever happen to you? For example, I packed the prize boxes, of course forgetting to put in a nice note to all the winners, then I couldn't mentally gear myself up for: juggling two kids, 5 boxes, rain, and most likely a line at the Post Office. So the boxes drove around with me all week. I finally completed the task yesterday...it wasn't even that terrible of a task. I hope you all love your cards! Sorry for the delay.
I also wanted to acknowledge all of the people who entered my first giveaway! I read all your comments and appreciate what you had to say. It seems like you are all looking for easy crafts for kids...my specialty! So, keep writing to me! I love hearing about your ideas, suggestions and adventures in crafting!
Here is a quick how to I came up with while Lu was making beads. This would be fun for grade school/middle school kids.
Start with a ball (we used Model Magic.)
Smoosh to make circle
Use marker cap to make UUUUUU's on belly
Fold sides in
Fold top down - pinch ears a bit
Use marker cap to make eyes
Use butter knife or similar to make beak -
Finally you can play with a bit by smooshing sides a bit to make owl more round.
Let dry and paint. We used Model Magic here but any clay or modeling clay would work.
