Making a caterpillar keychain ...

Today Mr Mailman brought me a package .. a very cute package that I had bought from ArtMind ... naughty little Mitsy sent something for the kiddies along with the two gorgeous cards I had bought from her ...

First the cards ... this is one I will give to an Australian friend for the birth of her baby boy .. it's so cute and fluffy!

Baby boy greeting card




This one I'm keeping for myself ... I live in hope ;).. te he he he ...

Happily ever after greeting card



There were some surprises included in this package (this is the naughty part) .. take a peek at what InĂªs, Gabriel and Simone made this afternoon ... This is the part we they learnt how to make a caterpillar keychain

Firstly they had to thread everything together .. which they did extremely well at their 'work table' (you can tell, it's got permanent drawings all over it)...



Then they had to pose for mummy to take a photo of the finished caterpillars ...



Thank you so much Mitsy (aka ArtMind) .. the kids had a wonderful time making the keychains and I totally love the cards!!!

My kids had a little round table like that too. I remember the painting and the tea parties. We gave it to another etsy mom who is using it for her little artists now. Her shop is at www.art714.etsy.com

One of my little kids who used to paint at a table like that, now has a shop at www.thepurplerat.etsy.com

You can see a photo of her painting at age 2, in this listing. Too cute! Must see!!

Sorry, posting on your blog and using to advertise my daughter's shop. LOL

She needs a sale to be inspired to keep posting paintings. Maybe someone will see her shop mentioned here.

Love the photos of your cute kids. How come they aren't wearing buttons?

I'm in a silly mood today, I better shut up. Have a lovely day Kerrin.

Hugs across the ocean!!!
