I searched etsy for perfect fabrics, but decided in the end to use fun stuff from my stash instead. And here is what I came up with:
I got the idea from THIS Junkmail Greetings post. Mine doesn't look as good as hers. I just realized that. Oh well.
Otherwise my craft room is the same horrid mess it was BEFORE I had Calvin. I've barely set foot in there. It's a shame. The good news is with no muse lately I've not bought any craft stuff. Saving money is good. Boring, but good.
I don't know when I'll get back into crafting. But when I do I'll post again. I know it's lame to have a blog and only post once a month. Maybe next month I'll get regular.
See you then. And Merry Christmas!
Speaking of school, it's going great. Stephen LOVES Kindergarden. He's not bored at all (his main complaint about preschool). He thinks all the activities are very cool. It's also making him learn faster. I'm not talking so much about the stuff they are teaching him, although there is that too, but the stuff we do at home. He has these word cards I've made, probably about 70 of them. All summer we worked on them, he would usually get all but about 10 right on the first try. I did them them other day and he got them ALL. It's like his mind is in learning mode more because of school. He's also reading GREAT. He is taking a stab at new words and getting better at sounding out. I'm very impressed.
Both Ethie and Stephen have made friends in their class that live right near us! Ethie has a friend who lives in the house right around the corner. He is excited because it's actually the house with the trampoline! We can see their yard from ours. Stephen has a new friend down the street named Ethan! He seems like a really nice boy. Talks a lot. That's me, Erin, saying he talks a lot. I want you to think about that... ME, Erin, saying this kid talks a lot. haha! He's funny and sweet though.
NO bully issues. They are in there but have mellowed or something. Stephen is not super good friends with them, but he said they are nice enough. It must be weird to be in Kindergarden with your brother. I would think they would take longer to make friends because they have each other? I think if my kids were the same grade I'd request them not to be together. Course I don't know, my kids are a year apart. Then Calvin, he will barely be in school with brothers at all!
