#make30 Things in 30 Days

 

I’m not even sure if I made it to 30 things. I know Brandie did, and considering the roll Tina was on, I’m pretty confident that she made it. I know Laurie wrote 30 poems, Stephanie made a bunch of things, and Sherrin made some things and wrote some things – all beautiful.

I managed:

1 blog post about kids and money

1 blog post about geography

3 pajama monsters

1 weird out of shape, wrong sized, beanie

1 weird wrong sized beanie that fit the neighbors kid perfectly

1 ladybug beanie

7 beanies for the Draft Cougars

4 crocheted snowflakes

1 98% done ladybug beanie (ran out of yarn with 8 stitches to go)

2 hand knitted (with my hands instead of needles)

2 washcloths

2 ridiculously sized baby (doll?) beanies

I only made it to 26.

I decided to do host this challenge before I decided to sign the girls up for softball. Softball is killing me y’all. It’s nuts.

I’m going to be proud of my 26 things.

Anyone want to do it again in June?  I’ll open up the groups a bit people can join in easier.

I love creating things. It might be crafting, writing, or cooking. Sometimes, even though I can’t play very well, I drag out my guitar and make some noise.

It’s been a tough year (or two) around here. In February, my sweet Mr. gave us a bedroom makeover that included a new sewing/crafting/whateverLisawantstodo area.

I’m so excited! I finally started on some pajama monsters that were supposed to be finished for Christmas. I’ve been sidetracked by preparing for softball season.

Then I sit and look around at all the pretty things and become totally overwhelmed with the options.

I need a kick in the butt to push me to just start making SOMETHING. ANYTHING.

So, I’ve started a challenge for April, and you are all invited to join me.

Easy St. Patrick's Day Crafts

Last week, we were hit with a random wintry day smack dab in the middle of a couple warm ones. I was so incredibly grumpy about it that I declared it an old-school arts and crafts day! Cheesy St. Patrick’s Day crafts with construction paper and Elmer’s glue always make me feel better.

First we made some Tissue Paper Rainbows.

All we needed was paper, tissue paper and glue.

Tissue Paper Rainbows

He managed to finish three rows before he started sneaking the glue behind my back and gluing flat squares all over the page!

Tissue Paper Flowers

I wasn’t going to be too much of a stickler about it being an actual rainbow. She wanted to do rainbow colors in a flower shape.

Tissue Rainbows 2

Her big sister wanted to add a sunshine and some rain.

While they worked the tissue paper crafts, I drew up the hats and four-leaf clovers.

The clovers were four hearts and a stem.

Four Leaf Clover Pattern

Cut them out, glue the four hearts to the stem. Easy peasy.

Clover Assembly

In case you’re wondering, I cut out Lil Man’s, he isn’t THAT good.

While they were busy cutting and pasting those, I worked up the hat patterns.

First, I cut 4 yellow strips, and 4 black buckles. The buckle is just a rectangle with two slits cut in it so the band could be weaved through it.

Then I drew the cutting lines on the green construction paper.

Leprechaun Hat Pattern

Cut off the brim, then the hat top. Glue the brim along the bottom edge of the hat top.

Then glue the band to the hat, above the brim line.

Cut out the mini-clover pieces, glue them the same way you did the large one, and add to the hat.

Leprechaun Hats

Easy peasy crafting. I think we spent about an hour doing all three.

Time to reprint my Leprechaun Math Journaling page and get some school-y type stuff done!
