I am always inspired by crafty moms, it takes a lot to be crafty and I think it takes even more to get crafty with your kids. So I am always on the lookout for easy projects that are a little, I don't know shall we say chic? Because then when I inevitably get left at the craft table by myself after my kids lose interest within about 5 minutes, I can at least enjoy finishing it to the end by myseld and make the clean up all worth it! The truth is, depending on your child's age, it's normal for kids to lose interest in these things pretty quickly - especially at home with mom. But being a person who "crafts" everyday for my pillow line, I like to introduce projects for them too. With my older son Fisher, I think I might have pressed too hard for him to be crafty and now he would rather chew on glass than sit down to a project with me. So with my twins M+L I am trying to just make certain projects available, no forcing here, because I really want a little mini me designer in one of my three boys! Come on just one! I do have to admit it that I love it every time we leave the house M+L say, "are we going to the fabric store?" and they actually say it with enthusiasm! So I am hopeful here.
