Friday Craft Day

I'm hopeful that Friday can become my craft day around the blog.  I'd love to share our projects from the week with my readers!

This week, the kids and I put up our Halloween decorations, and we made papier-mache bowls.  Unfortunately, it's been a while since I've done papier-mache and I didn't know I needed to grease the bowls!  So, we'll be soaking the paper back off, greasing the bowls, and putting the paper back on to dry again.  Better luck this time!

Papier-mache take 2


I've been very passively working on a hat for myself for a few weeks now.   I'm in no rush to get it done because it isn't really needed yet and I don't have any pressing projects lined up.  So, I've not been rushing to grab it every time my hands are empty.  I'm working on the second strap, although I've decided I should have done them both at the same time so they'd be exactly the same.  Then I'll add a small flower and the hat will be done!


So, what have you been working on this week?
