Raising Special Needs Kids Raising Special Needs Kids

I am learing how to make burlap and mesh wreaths. They are pretty but so expensive. A friend of mine makes them and is coming over tomorrow afternoon to teach me how and to make one of each! Very excited about it.

Are you crafty? Do you have any pictures of your projects?

I do some crafts...but not nearly as crafty as I used to be growing up.
I buy all my hairbows from a friend who's super crafty cause i can't make a bow to save my life!
I make candies, bird feeder ornaments & wreaths to hand outside for wild birds, dog treats, and working some doing more stuff.
Need to get back into sewing haven't been able to do it in many many years!
I like to get my girl into crafts....we paint t-shirts, make stepping stones, do little craft projects for each holiday, etc.

I used to do cross stitch and crochet a lit, but then I was having a lot of carpal tunnel pain in my right hand and stopped. I just started my first cross stitch in years yesterday for my niece's baby, due in Nov and shower next month!

Check out Oriental Trading they have tons of cheap supplies you can get in bulk as well as educational stuff.  My son loves this craft bin and looks for things each day to create.

Before i had kids. I would buy at hobby lobby those christmas village that you could paint. I been told i was very good. I would even use tooth picks to paint very tiny stuff.  But im trying to sale my village. It funny no one will buy cause they think it needs to be sold as a set.  Even after i say just buy 1 if you really like. I got no room. And 3rd child on way. I dont want over 20 building in boxes that takes up room.             And i love to draw animals. At least my boys like my drawings.
