Something for the kids...

Edited to add: I posted Will's birth story over on my personal blog - I know a few of you have been asking, so click on over if you want all the gory details. :)

I've been trying to include Madeline in my crafty endeavors whenever I can. Usually this involves setting her up with paint and paper while the baby sleeps so I can sew or giving her some crazy scissors and paper and letting her go to town. When I saw this cute project over at Cluck Cluck Sew, I knew I had to make one of these with my girl.

I cut a "M" out of an empty cereal box, cut up some scraps from my scrap box, handed her a bottle of glue and let her have at it. She had so much fun!

When we were finished, I punched two holes through the top and hung it on some pink ribbon and she put it on her doorknob. I intended to hang it on her door, but she was very unhappy that she couldn't reach it "all the way up there", so the doorknob it is.

Also, in the interest of full disclosure, I do NOT set her up with a project everytime I sew. Like...right now she's watching Max & Ruby while I blog about keeping her occupied with cool craft projects. Ironic?
