Sometimes Siena has the making bug. I totally understand. If there’s been days that we haven’t created much, it starts to build up. I get that same bug.
One day she was looking through the parachute bracelets she and Lucas had made last summer, and decided she wanted to learn to make different knots. We worked together with the bracelets back then, but I’ve never done any other kind of knots. So, with the amazing internet and youtube in front of us, she found what she was looking for.
It took few tries, but it worked great.
Lots of fun.
After creating our first silk paintings last fall, I wanted to make some more.
There is a store by our house that has challenges every month with a specific supply they carry. Siena has been trying to win since they started these last summer, and she’s still working on it. And most times, I work with her so we can have more chances to win.
Siena made this weaving out of crawling blackberries. She invented this design all on her own.
And a little something for a friend on her birthday delivered on her steps. Pansies (they are called Pensamientos (“thoughts”) in Spanish), and chai concentrate that I’ve tweaked a little (depending on what spices I have on hand) and have used for a long while inspired by Heather from Beauty That Moves, and know she likes.
Hope you are making something today!
