Thursday October 14th!

Wow~ life is freaking FAST these days! Monday night I made 2 FRANKENSWEATERS for this weekend at the Expo at the Convention Center, Tuesday I took down my stuff at the Firehouse for the L-7 show (SUPER fun! Hope you were able to make it!), and last night after getting a really snotty Max in the tub and then into bed while Duane went to Ethan's Memorial at the Cedar all night, I got one more FRANKENS done, and another fixed as the button broke while it was in the "fluff" setting in the dryer... and now I am uploading student work to our Artsonia gallery- here is a sample!

These are "Scrap Paper Monsters" made from ACTUAL SCRAPS out of my classroom scrap paper boxes.... aren't they GREAT?! I showed them how to just pull out any old scrap and determine it as the head, and then another and make it the body, ect ect ect.... kids are just SO MUCH FUN!

I wonder if adults would be such a hoot to teach? Maybe if I were to include some alcohol in the mix.....

What fun scrap-paper monsters, and what a great idea! I'm going to share this post with one of my arty friends who has a 3-year-old, I'm sure she would enjoy showing her daughter how to do this.
