Hi friends! Do you know that around 750 of you read this blog every day? I'm amazed and astonished by that... I don't know why, but it just makes me happy. If you are on pinterest, you can follow me there too... http://pinterest.com/jenni_swenson1/ Always feel free to pin photographs from my blog.
I grew up playing with paper dolls. I have a foggy memory of my Grandma Elsie teaching me to cut them. I would cut them out and color them to make families. My girls loved to do it too. Now, I'm cutting out paper dolls for my little preschoolers. I love to do it while they watch. The conversation usually goes like this...
Me: "Can you guess what I'm cutting out boys and girls?"
3 year olds: "An airplane? A robot? A giraffe?"
Of course, I stick with the easy stuff... boys and girls, hearts, snowmen, simple shapes. They are thrilled with the results every time.
Fold your paper into 4 equal parts. Fold it one more time, draw your design on half the paper. Make sure you have a couple spots where your drawing touches the fold.
Unfold and smile at your craftiness!
I started making doily garlands today at preschool. I used a package of small doilies. I sandwiched a piece of yarn in between 2 doilies. We added beads in between each doily... easy and cute!
Last week, I asked you to pray for a 14 year old girl named Carly. Sadly, she passed away this week. I hope you will pray for the Christenson family. Her obituary is here... http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/startribune/obituary.aspx?page=lifestory&pid=162264338#fbLoggedOut
