So I am only one mom, but I am going to take this post to tell you my opinion about the Hunger Games movie. St. Louis kids are on Spring Break this week, so we indulged and attended the midnight premiere. These photos show our kids freezer paper stenciling some shirts to wear - tutorial for fpstenciling here.
I don't know how the film could have been done better. Really. David will see it and my kids will want to see it again. And we'll let them, and we'll talk about it more.
Have you seen it?
On a lighter note: The gold metallic fabric paint by tulip works beautifully - I'll post a better close up next week (Faith used it on her shirt - all the way to the left, above). It was so fun to use!
And Kyle of course did not see the movie and he has years before he'll read the books. But he did make a tshirt (I'll show that to you next week too) and thinking of Suzanne Collins reminded me that he is ready to begin the Overlander series - another must read, for children of all ages.
Happy Weekend! xo

Like so many others with this early Spring weather - we are speaking cautiously and enjoying thoroughly! My yard is filled with bees which I'm taking as a good sign. Hoping to fill in our strawberry garden a bit today and plant some lettuce and spinach. We'll see...
I spent a dreamy morning with Maribeth last week in her uber fun art room. She taught me how she makes her art paper for her handmade journals. So so fun.
Faith and her friends are making friendship bracelets again. I love how this craft happens cyclically in our home. To those of you with young children, I encourage you to take one photo of your child with said bracelets during every friendship-bracelet phase. Faith's are now quite detailed and purposeful. I would love to have documented their evolution over the years.
Happy Monday! xo
