My nephew Liam came to stay with me yesterday afternoon. I love having Chloe and Liam together, but I jump at the chance to have just one of them once in a while. It's a whole different experience when it's one on one. We had fun pretending... to be Ninja Bakers and reading our favorite books. I have tons of toys here for the kids to play with, but the only thing Liam wants when he gets to my house is my wooden utensils and mixing bowls. He plays with them for hours.
I always know when Liam has been here.
In other news...I've been on a quest to create things using everyday items, recycled materials, etc....yesterday I fashioned a lavender sachet from a used dryer sheet, some dried lavender, and a vintage photo. I think it turned out quite nicely. I am always looking for something to do with all of the old photos I am drawn to and accumulate.
