Nothing like a few artic fronts to bring on early cabin fever! Really, it was just too cold to leave the house so here we all were for FOUR looooong days of togetherness. Probably could have gotten more done but the list is not too shabby.
Julia's seahorse habitat for the science fair was one of those super bonding experiences. She is a dedicated little worker and we had fun digging through my fabric scraps to find the "just right" sand, water, momma horse, brother horse, and sister horse...that's right I said horse because since "farm animals and pets" were disallowed we had to get creative!
Experimented with bread making....already do quick breads but decided to give yeast a try! Found a no knead recipe and did a whole wheat and a white version to mixed reviews. The texture and taste of the wheat was better but the crunch of the white's crust was preferred. Felt a lot like Henny Penny with this project as it seems the Disney channel is more alluring than a cookbook. BTW, it was all gone in less than 24 hours.
Since I didn't like the way the first little blouse looked with the Puppy Love outfits I redesigned a new option....and
did up a candy heart version as well.
If anyone out there knows of a little girl who wears a 4t and just needs to have a one of a kind Valentine's day outfit this one's available and will be listed on eBay as soon as I figue out this camera!! Stellaluna Style Studios now has labels....let's hope the lead law gets rewritten!!!
Checked a few heads for visiters! Seems the critters who first appeared in their school around Halloween are still hair hopping! Just the thought is grossing us girls out but our token male is bemused...seems it was not a rare event in rural Ireland in the 50"s. Leaves me wondering how any one of them survived that childhood when he tells you matter of factly that they'd just dust their hair and pillows with DDT powder!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So far we've been spared and let's just keep it that way!
