We had Creative Friday at Jill's house again yesterday. It's awesome when Eva and Whitney go off to play and we hardly see them for the rest of the day!
It feels almost tragic that now that we're hitting a great C.F. groove, Jill has to go back to work soon. That's just plain wrong if you ask me.
Anyway. I worked on some felt barrettes for Eva and some book page flowers for me.
I may use some of these for gift toppers and I would like to make a wreath out of them as well. But I'll have to make a lot more. A lot.
Jill discovered that these fun size packs contain between 6-8 peanut m&ms. How's that for portion control??
I went in to give Eva a warning that we were about to leave and found this game set-up. She told me that they needed about an hour to finish. (I always wish we could stay longer, too.) I'm so happy that they come up with games they both seem to enjoy.
When we were leaving, Whitney presented this bag of Hello Kitty toys for Eva! She was thrilled, of course. (It only served to reinforce her idea that Whitney is her best friend.)
Well. You would think that after years of taking self-portraits together, we would really have our technique down, but then we get one like this. Yikes. (Incidentally, sometimes I wear my hair in a ponytail. I generally think it looks kind of cute when I see it in the mirror, but when I see it in a picture, I am horrified. What the? Maybe I shouldn't be allowed to wear ponytails?)
I'm trying to focus on the positive with Creative Friday. At least we've had quite a few this summer, and we can (hopefully) squeeze in a few more. But I still dread the start of school. Eva will be going to first grade and we could have actually had a block of kid-free time together! So sad.
