It’s no wonder I never have time to sit down and actually craft or practice baking real a cake! I pack it on layer after layer. Planning kids parties for Petite Picasso, mom to a 6 year old, being on the decorations committee for a huge school fundraiser event, and even planning as far ahead as August for my summer art camps! I am literally going to have to put a craft day per week on my calendar and just force myself until I get into a groove of regular crafting. A lot of it is just saying, “ok Deida, you can take one day off of errands and party planning to do this for yourself”…..Well see how it goes, I’ll start in April….. : )
My first project will be these “Toad” Stools. How awesome are these! I saw them originally on Etsy. I am teaching a Garden Gnome summer art camp in July and plan on this being one of their big projects. The Mammut stools from Ikea were only $8 each. Kids ages 8-12 will have no problem sewing the red circles together with batting inside, attaching ribbons to loop around the legs and then glueing on the spots. When I finally get around to this gem of a project I will let you know how it goes! I ordered 2 extra so I can make a set for my daughters room.
