I've been feeling scattered this week, and not terribly motivated to craft. I have a lot of to-do items hanging over my head right now, and that always plays into a halt on creativity. One little project did get started and completed, so hopefully I'll get more done the rest of this week.
Several of the moms in my playgroup are about to give birth to second, third and fourth children. I always like to make at least a little something for the new babe, even if it makes me a smidgen sad because I probably won't be having more children of my own. This little cloche hat from Aesthetic Nest came together pretty quickly. I like the flower detail a lot.
This bag of corky goodness was a free find on Kijiji. I admit I didn't think there would be this many corks (that is an industrial size garbage bag, about 30 inches across on the bottom!), so I think I'll be making a cork wreath or two in addition to the trivets I had originally planned on making. So far, my kids haven't spilled the bag. Fingers crossed for that little miracle to continue.
And finally, my ongoing quest to get my kids to eat resulted in this little sloppyjoe race car for lunch. I was browsing a really adorable blog called Making Memories with your Kids, when my son looked over my shoulder and noticed a photo of a similar 'race car sandwich' (as he called it). He was excited and so we made one. He still didn't eat more than a couple very small bites, but it was nice to see him excited by at least the idea of food.
Have a great Tuesday! This evening I'm off to a friend's house to sit and gab while we all work on different lap crafts.
