I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Arts and crafts

Me - I like arts and crafts.I like to draw. I have a lot of coloring books. I have some arts and crafts supplies in my room, but most of my arts and crafts supplies are in our basement. My mother doesn't really like us to do art in our room unless it is just coloring or putting stickers paper. It is too messy. I have lots and lots of stickers. My sister is jealous because I have so many.  I love decorating with stickers. My Mom gets mad when my sister or I put stickers on the furniture or walls. In school, we made lots of art projects, but now that I am older we probably will not make so many. I will miss making a lot of art projects. We saved a lot of my art projects. Sometimes, I like to play with the ones that are animals and people. I have to be careful that I don't break them when I play with them. My sister used to make really cute animals out of toliet paper tubes and give some to me. Now, she sews some really cute animals and gives some to me. I love art especially making animals out of art! It is fun to make things.*

*The above is guest post by little sister, Aurella as dictated to Mom.

Mom - At various times,  my girls have really been into art. Melia was into hook rug for a while and into Bendaroos for a while and various other thing. She even went through a period where she liked to make these little animals out of toliet paper tubes. Aurella likes to color and she loves to cut things out. When I was young, I went through a period where I was really into arts and crafts too. I was always saving things like egg cartons, paper towel tubes, cereal boxes and  other stuff to make art projects out of. However, I was more into the idea of creating art projects than I was into actually creating them. I ended up throwing out most  of the stuff  I saved and not really using it. I also liked to color when I was young. I had all these coloring books. I remember I had some Barbie coloring books. I had a Partridge Family coloring book. I had a Tom Sawyer coloring book. In most of my coloring books, I was always saving my favorite pages for last, I never got around to coloring any of those favorite pages before I grew out of  the desire to color in coloring books though. I went through a phase where I like to draw. However, I was never really that good at it, and I knew people who were much better at drawing then me so eventually I gave that up. I am much better with words than with pictures. That is why I blog.

And that's our view. What is your favorite arts and craft project?
