feeling crafty

I have been feeling quite crafty lately.  Last week I went on a major shopping spree at the craft store and bought all sorts of new fun art supplies.  I saw this butterfly art project (via Whatever) and knew that Poppy would love to make one herself.

Didn't it turn out great?!  I love how bright and cheery it is hanging in our living room!  And Poppy loved making it so much that we decided to make another one to give as an end of the year gift to her ballet teacher.

And we had a few leftover butterflies that we decided to use on a birthday gift...  (if you are expecting a gift from us anytime soon, you can pretty much count on it looking exactly like this!)

And we are still plugging away at the art lessons from the art class we started back in March.  Ever since the weather started getting nice, we have slowed way down, but we still enjoy working on them whenever we have a rainy day.

And I didn't want to leave Sammy out, so here is a picture of what I refer to as "Sam vs. cottage cheese".  It's what happened when I left a small bowl of cottage cheese within his reach when I left the room to wash some dishes.  Awesome.
