Thank you all for following along with the Foam Saga,
now ended, and for the wonderful comments!
For those just joining us, welcome -
here is a pictorial recap of the projects
Foam is at half-price at JoAnn this week, incidentally.
Strangely, I no longer feel the urge to procure any.
Some updates on how the kids and foam toys are getting on:
Emily loves the cake and upon getting it, immediately
prepared it as a birthday cake for Kate. She surprised me
with her restraint in picking felt pieces to decorate with.
Her restraint is all the more evident when you
consider the enthusiasm of the neighbor kids,
who came to play cake with her.
Here is Jenna with her bit of overzealous gardening.
It was so much fun to watch her painstakingly pick all
the strawberries off the plant, count them, lovingly
apportion them to various family members, then put
them all back on the stems, all the while yelling,
"Kate can't have the strawberries! She's too little!"
Now I feel a bit restless for some quicker projects.
But first, a bit of a pesky emergency
- my wallet's days are numbered:
The sad, sad coin-pouch zipper split last week and
the bit of masking tape is all that protects its modesty.
Aesthetics aside, I am also growing tired of ripping off
and replacing the masking tape each time I need change.
So new wallet in the works.
One to keep and one to give away.
Check back here again if you'd like to win it!
