Pine Cone Bunny.

With Easter fast approaching, we are deep into bunnies in our house. Teddy wants his peanut butter sandwich shaped like a bunny, Kitty hugs her beloved calico bunny to sleep every night and the bunnies who live in the garden (lol, their names are Mine and Yours) are being fed copious amounts of carrots and […]

Let’s make a Beeswax Suncatcher.

This weekend was supposed to be a spring cleaning weekend for Kitty. Her wardrobe has become cluttered with favorite clothes that have, alas, either become too small or too holey! Sadly, she is very averse to patches… apparently, they itch! So, it was with a heavy heart that we set about cleaning out her draws […]

Make a Hummingbird Feeder.

We so love the hummingbirds. They are prolific in our area… visiting our garden often. They remind me of UFO’s… they come ‘whirrrrrrrrrring’ in, hover, and then, faster than lightening, zip off into the air and away. They amuse me and make me smile. Kitty want’s them to stay. She gets frustrated with their fleeting […]

Make an Autumn Wreath.

Our door says… WELCOME AUTUMN! One of the ways we notice the changing of the season in our home is to make and decorated a door wreath for each season. As we collect the nature bits for it, we talk about how our world is changing with the new season. We talk about what we […]

My dearest darling computer crashed last Monday and has spent the entire week in the computer ICU undergoing, what is comparable, to open-heart surgery. Poor darling, had to be completely restored. Alas, […]

Darling Little Birdseed Cakes.

I have been wanting to make these sweet little birdseed cakes for ages. YAY, I finally remembered to buy gelatine at the supermarket… it has been on my shopping list for months but, alas, it was one of those things I just could NOT remember. At last, as I was looking through the spice isle […]

Make Bark Boats.

We made Bark Boats today and took them to our local nature center to race down the stream. It was such fun that we had to do it again… and again… and again. Mr T’s boat was the fastest and won most of the races. He is a natural sailor. I took wonderful photos to […]

Beginning Needle Felting with Kids.

K often sits with me while I am needle felting. We talk and she tells me about her day, watching me as I work away. She gives me ideas, suggests colors and encourages me with sweet praise. It’s a lovely time for us. Every now and then, she says she wants to make something too. […]
