vertical


A few days ago, my four year old got her craft on and made this vertical garland. She went digging in the recycle bin for materials (how proud am I?) and decided to use a paper towel tube. After tearing it up into a bunch of medium sized pieces, she decorated them with colored pencils and then stuck the pieces onto a long strip of apple green artist tape.


Her creation has polka dots and stripes, it dangles, and is all wispy and cute. Most important is her humongous, beaming smile when she came to introduce me to her "garland." Gah! I love her. There is just something so cool about knowing that she is inspired by her time spent crafting with me, and that she is motivated to develop a completely unique project of her own.

  2. Hi Beth - Sure! I have my email address listed in the sidebar (in a boring little paragraph that discusses comments). Why don't you send me an email with some of your questions? xo e

  3. I just wanted to say that I am loving your blog. It is such a fun and refreshing read. And we HAVE to get together soon. This is ridiculous. I only have 1 more week of work and then my time will be more flexible esp. if we do mom+kid(s) dates.

  4. Good for her! Her garland is adorable. One of these days I'd like a blog entry about where you are keeping all these treasures, because we do not have a fraction of your craftiness going on over here and Eli's projects are taking over the dining room. Surely you have some brilliant idea for that too? ;)
