A Little Crafting


May has brought festivals, recitals, plays, ceremonies, and birthdays. What a flurry. Lou and I sat down on Sunday for a little crafting. It felt so good. She and I made this little cottage together--a perfect craft for 3rd grade. They are building a tree house at school right now as part of their "Shelter" block. The idea came from Ilse who got it from Molly Chicken.

I wanted to add little gardens along the bottom and more decorations, but Lou was too excited to spend much more time on it. You see, it was to be a home for Monkey and she needed to get in it right away :) I think we'll be making more.


She also whipped up this bag. It's a spy bag and holds everything for her spy kit.

We've had no time for crafting and I miss it. Thanks for letting us peek into your craft world while we take a break. I love the little house.

A spy bag! Yes, AMelia had one when she was in 2nd/3rd grade to, she even had her very own badge/secret agent card.
Great crafts, I would love to have some quiet afternoon again to make things, there is always next winter!

We haven't been crafting much lately either. I think I'll show my daughter this post and see if she wants to give either project a try- they both are so cute.

What a sweet little house! I've been meaning to make something like that to go along with the farm play mat I made last year. After I finish all my other projects, I suppose... And that is a very nice spy bag. It's very important to have a place for all your most crucial stuff :)

That little house is so adorable. I absolutely must make one with Rose this week!

That spy bag is sooo cute!! And it's great to see that there are kids out there doing something other than playing video games.

I think I want a spy bag...is 34 too old to have a spy bag?

Your craft ideas are wonderful. I may try this one too.

Such beautiful work. The bag is inspired. Hope Lou has a great time spying.
