Sneak Peek Friday - Making art paper

This week has been all about children and creativity and lots of fun...
I learned a lot about making a video tutorial and operating the movie maker software on 
this wonderful computer my guy gave me a while back...
video
Shaving cream and liquid food coloring
art paper tutorial with Miss A...

Tuesday we made crosses at a homeschool function.  
The children were really focused, letting the Holy Spirit speak to them...

I loved the combination of the natural elements and the scrap fibers..

Thursday was her B.I.G. 10 birthday!!!  
I can't believe it!
She says she is "0-teen"!
We went to Don Pablo's for her birthday supper - 
she had a chocolate volcano AND sopapillas for dessert!

She wanted to go hang out with a group of older ladies and learn smocking yesterday...
so we had "Learning Heritage Sewing Arts" for school time (smiles)...
They absolutely loved having a young one...they are all amazed at her heart for hand work...

(You know that means that I am learning to smock...right?)
My project
Next week will be focused again on painting "eternal words..."

till then -

I have never done smocking, but I have a few dresses for my girls with hand smocking and I really admire it!

The crosses are so beautiful. Your daughter is precious that she wants to "hang out with the old ladies" and learn smocking - what a wonderful child!

What a great idea with the crosses...so easy and fun for kids...and a good Easter craft. Was trying to think of something different to do with older kids instead of egg art, this would have been good. Will keep it in mind for next year.

I'm not a crafty person - and so you know I didn't come from the link - just came by to read your wordds. And again I'm struck by the love of a mom who cares. Your homeschooling - I am just in awe of homeschooling moms - how hard you work - how creative the crosses were awesome - and smocking - well - whatever it is I'm sure it will be too. God Bless and keep you and all of yours. I really hearted this post Cindy. Thank you.

The crosses are magnificent, meencantan those designs. Greetings

PD:
I do not use photoshop, or any other editing software. I'm not against those who use it because the important thing is creativity. I do not use it because I like it and because I am an inept and lacking in patience to learn. As my photos are mostly studio and I have the ability to manage all the variables, can not find it necessary to repeat the picture is to my liking. What matters is the final result, and each one has to find his way and his personal style.
