On Saturday Susanna and I spent 7 hours at a crafting "bee", organized by a co-worker of hers. While most were working on scrapbooking, I brought up materials for beading and sewing pincushions, while Susanna worked on creating art pieces for Aidan's room.
Even though I don't have kids, it was none-the-less an amazing luxury to spend the day solely working on craft projects. We took a break for food, and to hit the art store for more supplies.
We finished off the day by making art books with Aidan and Vanessa. Vanessa filled the first couple pages with poems within minutes.
