Sewing School!

Friday, July 26th, 2013

My children and I got to review the new book, Sewing School 2: Lessons in Machine Sewing and we had a blast testing out the projects!

Sewing School 2 is a wonderful way to introduce children to sewing with a machine because it encourages them to be confident in themselves while inspiring them to be creative in ways that feel fun and productive. Plus, the projects pictured in the book are made by other children, which leaves my kids feeling inspired and connected to all of the creative possibilities within.

There is a book review (and give-away) on my blog, Red Bird Crafts.

Happy weekending!

Bookshelf :: a spring favorite

Friday, April 5th, 2013

The Story of The Root Children by Sibylle von Olfers is one of our favorite seasonal books to read at the beginning of spring.  It tells a short tale of the root children who live under the earth waiting for spring to arrive so that they can decorate the earth with their colors and spirits. My two love to imagine the tiny root children busily preparing for the green shoots and warm days ahead.  If your library doesn’t own a copy, you might want to suggest that they do!

We’re off to warm our cheeks in the sunshine.

Happy Friday!
