Crafty

On a recent episode of Speechless the family spent the day doing things that were not limited to accessibility while the oldest son, JJ, who is wheelchair bound, was out doing things with his aid.   One of the mom's lines went something like, "I do things for myself...I lit a candle a few months ago!"  That episode really hit home in a lot of ways.

This weekend, Joshy has been in short stay.  Yesterday Jerry & I made a Costco run.  Kei, being very teenager-ish, opted to stay home alone and pursue her own interests.  Today, after church, I went shopping.  Nothing big, but I did spend quite a bit of time at the 100 yen shop looking over craft supplies.  I then went home and PLAYED!  I took an idea I found on Pinterest awhile back and ran with it.


There was paint involved...


And glitter glue...




We all need to play sometimes!!

I so get this!

Btw last night we had candles at dinner. My little insertion of "girly" into this macho household.

So with you on that - I like to sit upstairs in cafés when I have respite!

I like the crafty bits too - is it tiles you've stuck them to, or paper blanks?
