.... her children craft.
I won't deny it - those Make A Bag posts are frightfully time-consuming to write. However, what partly makes them possible is the girls now being able to craft independently of me. This leaves me time to write posts and then come and ooh and aah at what they're making. They see me now as a supplies stockist of sorts, coming to me with a list of art and craft materials they need, and then running off to set up "work areas" at which they can create.
I'm thinking that I need a tiny break from the intensity of bagblogging, so I imagine you might appreciate a post on something else, too. Here are some things the girls made last week - a sort of snapshot of what crafting looks like in our house when there are actual outcomes and not just mess.
