We got to make some fun crafts to celebrate Father's day with Matt (as well as our Dads). Anyone who knows me can tell you that I'm not a super crafty person- easily stressed out by creative environments- overly concerned with visions of grandeur- usually disappointed. This particular adventure was starting out poorly because my son is apparently a lot like me. Not that interested in painting, yes I"m serious. I even tried to show him that he could finger paint (yikes!) but he wasn't interested. I was surprised.
Change of plan: got with it. I was totally freed up by the release of my own expectations for what I could create, and James had more fun as well (it's always more fun when Mommy isn't stressing out). James painted. I outlined. Hayden contributed his foot. (and the awesome staff at Bisque and Beads did the writing on the cup- yes, stress relief!). THAT is was I call teamwork.
I was very happy with our results. memories were made; little hands & feet were captured in time; loved ones were celebrated; joy was given/received/shared.
I am so grateful for my boys' daddy. Happy Father's day.
Thank you pinterest for always giving me just enough inspiration to confidently pursue a craft. I am not the creative mind behind the concept, but I was pretty proud of my results.
