inspiration: get your crafty acorn ON!


Much inspired by my acorn owls, I continued the crafty acorn love throughout last week. First, with my girlfriends: very much enjoying ourselves with lots of wee bits (we're making playset gifty boxes for our children for Christmas which they could not possibly love as much as we do).

(Okay, so that last one was the day before: Reuben tracing his hand. With a green crayon, of course. I don't know where he learned that, but it was very delicious. And I needed one more picture and the other one I took of Shannon's fuzzy-horned owls was quite blurry because I am a most excellent photographer.)

Plus, we had the good fortune to be crafting at the farmhouse. The beauty! And the details like the vine-y fence. They're all over the place. You'd die of joy there.I also set some of my small girl friends plan loose with acorns, wool felt scraps (using that bag of tinies!), and gold leaf. I was impressed and do wish I had a darker background for that turkey because SURELY you want to make one.
