I Just Have to Brag ...

I am Mommy to only one little nugget, Lil Monkey, but my husband has know our next current next door neighbors sine he was a teenager and of course, I inherited them with the marriage. They are only a few years older than us, barely newlyweds when they moved in and we have watched their two children grow up.Occasionally, Lately I have been asked to step in as the "crafty mom" when the younger one, aged 9, has a school project assignment. 

Last week, he got an assignment to make an Indian teepee for history class that is learning about American Indians. They had figured out a base and the poles using a Styrofoam flat circle and kabob sticks, but the felt they got to cover it was causing a problem. We talked over the design issues and I pulled out some pleather-type fabric I had been given a while back. I also gave them a hot glue gun to use (instead of pins) and a bottle of puff paint that I found in my paint box.

Today, I get a call to come see this amazing masterpiece ...



Awesome tribal painting! So proud of the "Other Monkey". 

Util our next cup of tea ...
