Being creative every day is a really fun job but after a while I have a tendency to feel like my work is getting "stale." I invited a gal pal of mine over, 11 year old Grace for a fun night of crafting. Not only did we get to catch up, but I gained a refreshing sense of inspiration. And I think in the end Grace had fun too :)
We made fun little figurines out of clay to turn into magnets. I loved the idea of brightening up my refrigerator and Grace was excited to have something new for her bedroom.
After sculpting Grace popped our pieces in the oven to bake. Then we put in a movie while we waited.
After they were baked and cooled, it was time to paint. Grace made a turtle and peanut butter and jelly
....I think it was inspired by my beta fish, "Peanut Butter & Jelly"...he was watching us work.
My refrigerator looks much more fun and we had a blast doing it! :D
