1980’s at Craft Time

Dear Kristen,

Little Mister is a tough cookie.  And so is his mama.  Everyone is alive in your house (and mine for that matter), so that’s a success!  Take ’em where you can find ’em.

Take for example our craft time the other week.  Or month.

We revisited the 1980s and the tried-and-true craft involving crayon shavings and waxed paper.


I have a distinct memory of doing this with Mom in the 4th bedroom/dad’s bedroom/storage room when I was probably 6 or 7.  It was fun then and it was now that I am 30+.


Munchkin loved doing it, though all she was really able to do was lay out the waxed paper and then count the leaves.  She isn’t allowed to use the cheese grater yet.  Or the iron.  Or sharp scissors.  And tracing?  Her skills need practice.

But we got it done!  Last month.  And I finally hung them!


So, see?  A success – two months in the making – but a success and I’ll take it!

Like the 1980s formatting?

Because with three out of four family members in the throws of colds, and I’m the odd one out, successes right now are hard to come by.  Runny noses for days…
