Another Crafty Weekend with The Nieces
Before another weekend slips away, I want to share with you some of the fun I enjoyed with the nieces this past weekend. First, I have to tell you what their requests were for the weekend: crafting (painting and soap-making) and a movie (snuggling up on the couch with big bowls of popcorn.) We didn't get to soap-making but accomplished their other goals and so much more. Take a peek.
These are Bug Catcher Necklaces (follow the link for the tutorial)
Some toenail painting was done. Each girl picked two colors and we went to town.
For lunch, we made mini pizzas on english muffins. (spread sauce, add topping and cheese, then heat in oven at 350 for 10 mins, and DONE) I found that having them work on aluminum foil kept the mess down as I could just put them on a cookie sheet (foil and all) to cook.
We played in my button stash and made some button flower bouquets.
Not pictured: jamming in the car with the windows down, climbing trees, exploring the back yard, playing the Wii, painting, making cinnamon twists for breakfast, catching bugs (for the bug catcher necklaces of course). It really was a blast!!
