Last night my sister-in-law was asking me why I don't use Pinterest (hi Lorraine!). I told her I found it overwhelming. And I spend too much time on the computer anyway. But she made a compelling argument that she uses Pinterest to enhance her playtime with her kids. They spend time together making crafts and such.
So I thought I'd give Pinterest another shot.
Surprisingly, I found it less time consuming than I'd thought. I spent one hour while the kids were in bed (still a lot, but not all day like I was afraid of) pinning a million things. And my plan is to just do those things. One by one.
Today we made mini-books. With watercolors.
I sat Claire down to do this, watched her for a few minutes, stood at the sink to do some dishes, and then thought, "To heck with the dishes. I wanna make one."
So I did.
I am not an artist. (As you can see.) But I had fun. And Claire is pretty much totally in love with this silly thing.
