jack in progress

October 23rd, 2007

I’m working on my entry for the Holiday Softie Awards.  Well really I’m sitting on the couch whining to no one imparticular about being sick and trying to motivate myself to actually work on my entry for the Holiday Softie Awards.   So far it’s working pretty well, but there are a few more components and I’m a little nervous about tackling those.  I don’t want to give it away before it’s done, but you could probably figure it out.  Any guesses?

My daughter and I did a little craft project, but seeing as we are all sick it really wasn’t much of a project.  I taped a a big sheet of paper to a table (it would probably have worked better on the floor, but I didn’t want her little brother messing with it) and we colored little scenes for her toys:  a table she could draw food on, a road for all the cars, she drew a lake and I put in a diving board and some sea creatures, and a playground.  We color all the time, but I don’t usually think of getting her other toys “involved.”  She could add new things when she thought of them and her little people ate and swam and drove all around.  It made for a nice morning of rainy day play.

    that is such a clever idea!!! Once I stuck lots (LOTS) of masking tape to the carpet making lots and lots of roads and tracks for various toys. All over the house. The kids loved it…

    Intrigues by your softie… looking good so far!!

    Jess is soo much more clever than I. I couldn’t shake Jack be Nimble, though it didn’t make sense. He’s looking so cute. Love the shirt fabric choice.
