German Phrase of the Day: Was sind deine Hobbies? = What are your hobbies? My wonderful 5 year old daughter Julia has many hobbies. Gymnastics, dancing, rollerblading, playing barbies / vet / legos / animals / you name it! But one hobby we share is crafting. I love it when she says to me "Mommy, can we go upstairs and do a craft together?"
On Friday afternoon we did that, and she wanted to make a special card. We have a good friend turning a significant age this month, and Julia thought it would be fun to make her a card. She wanted to use one of my MFT stamps, and she chose the women at the cafe. Next, she wanted a cake, on the cake plate. Once everything was stamped on the paper, she took it to her own desk to color and cut out. Then, she chose a color for the card base and I cut it for her, and she selected some ribbon and attached it herself! When she was done she was very pleased with herself and said "Mommy, I really want you to put this on your blog." I mean, how could I resist? She's quite irresistible when she's being cooperative (and I got 2 cards done while she worked on that - of course, I can't show them yet...sorry!) So, here is Julia's card - I even made her her own watermark! She would LOVE it if some of you left comments for her!
And now, since it is quarter past midnight and I have been awake since 5:30 am, I am going to bed. My friend Karin and I finished 2 of last nights challenges before heading to Pipoos and running other errands (she slept in lucky girl!) and then we just did the first 6 of Saturday's challenges. Phew... I'm tired! We have 10 more to do before she leaves Monday afternoon, so I think we'll be busy tomorrow!!Goodnight!!
