Olivia made Leah this cute little house for her miniature La La Loopsy dolls. She used a shoe box, scrapbooking paper, scraps of fabric, and several odds and ends that she found in various places.

Spending time on Pinterest has put me in a craftsy mood, and I normally don't even like to do crafts! Mostly I have rekindled my interest in sewing. Earlier this afternoon I cut out an apron for me and most of a capri pants and top outfit for Leah. Having a designated space for all of our sewing/scrapbooking/crafting supplies plus my fabulous crafting table inspires me!
One of the advantages of homeschooling is that my children have time on most days to spend in creative pursuits. They work really hard completing their schoolwork and chores, but unless we have somewhere to go, they always have time for their hobbies. They also work on their projects after supper until bedtime. As my younger children are growing older, I am finding that I am having a tiny bit more discretionary time as well. So, I am getting to spend some time in creative pursuits of my own!
I'll post some pictures of my apron and Leah's outfit when I finish them---it may take me a couple of weeks or even a month--I just work on my projects a little bit at a time.
