The creative child

Early this morning, I was talking to the farmer about Em's "projects" as she calls them. We absolutely love how creative she is and she will sit at the kitchen table for hours and make things. My mom found her a couple of stamp sets at a garage sale and she has been very busy with those this week. One is a recipe card stamp with smaller food stamps. She has been creating invitations to people to come to dinner, menus for her restaurant, and recipes. This is usually how our table looks by the end of the day.

This is actually picked up since she went to grandma's house for the night and took her stamps and two school boxes of markers with her.

I'm always on the lookout for craft supplies at garage sales and both grandmas also watch for art and crafty stuff. Ribbons, markers, stamps, buttons, little do-dads, stickers, scrapbooking paper and crafts. It's one really good way to get cheap art and craft supplies. If only I could find the garage sale that has reams of paper for 50 cents apiece because boy oh boy do we go through the paper, at least a ream a month.

Note how half the stuff on the table is mine? Yeah, the farmer pointed that out also. Even when I'm at the sewing machine and she's at the table, we (she) talks (sometimes nonstop, all day, like never shuts up - but I love every word). I wouldn't change this mess for anything in the world!!
