I didn’t really sift through Pinterest with Miss Gaia this week before her father scooped her away for his turn. She is still wrapped up in all her Christmas gifts anyway. She did do some crafting of her own, using the fashion headband kit that my mother sent for her birthday last month. She’s also apparently learning to sketch, which I am extremely proud of.
Keep in mind that she just turned five. I could be totally wrong, but I feel like this is excellent progress as far as her artistic talent goes. She loves to write and draw and paint and I love it. She’s so awesome.
What did mama learn to do this week? Well I utilized Pinterest to learn how to 5-strand braid so I could make a nifty key chain for my cousin. We used to love the Sarah McLaughlin commercial against the cruelty of animals. I got him a semi-lame Christmas gift, and when I found this charm (which he gave me ages ago) I decided it’d be a nice gesture to return it in a useful manner. ASPCA key chain, go!
Also, Hutch’s brother joined the army last year and he was home for the holidays but because I went out of town I didn’t do Christmas with his family. I assumed he’d be home longer than he was, but he left on the 1st for his deployment in Korea. He says it’s frightfully cold, so I’m crocheting him up a scarf to help him keep warm. I decided to learn a new stitch. I had the spider stitch in my archives and so I’m trying to do that. I’m using a super bulky yarn though (and it’s black because that’s the color Hutch said I should make it). We’ll see how it turns out. 🙂
