today we decided to make a few things out of egg cartons. i had an idea to make little owls and so we did. i first made a snowy owl, just to make sure the craft could work. my second owl is a brown one, not as elaborate as the first but still cute. nat decided to make a red, purple and green owl. here, the whole egg carton owl family...
i also 'finished' up her dream box house i've been making (or rather, getting ready for her) for the longest. once, at knott's berry farm, we saw these small wood carven b
oxes called wish boxes. the story was that you would put your wishes in these tiny boxes. of course she wanted one but i thought i would make a little something for her. she helped me paint a shoebox red on the outside (and a little on the inside) and i did the rest. i made a little house with a mail box (though i have to find a better way to secure it. it's leaning a bit). the mail box has little papers i cut for her to write her wishes on. after she writes her wishes, she removes the roof on the house and puts the wish inside. instant wish box house!
i don't believe in reading tea leaves as an answer for what's in my future but sometimes i do like looking to see what shapes come about from the remains. today i think i see a large oak tree in a field with the leaves blowing away from it in the wind. what do you see?
