I starting doing some spring cleaning this weekend (including washing the curtains and the windows, which sad to say, never gets done) but got waylaid by this project. Can you say procrastination?
I've been wanting to set up a writing/art table for Maia in the living room and finally did it. I love the Melissa Sweet counting birds! She also makes beautiful alphabet cards. I've been wanting to hang these for a while now and just realized they would be perfect for above the desk.
Here's what's on the table now: a pad of paper, various stencils (Maia loves stencils right now), her marker holder, a bell jar with colored pencils, some envelopes, a sheet of one cent stamps, a box with tape, scissors, and glue stick, and her Kumon cutting book.
I'm not big into workbooks, but Maia's other love is cutting with scissors, and she has really enjoyed the cutting projects in this book. She also cuts everything else that she can, unfortunately, including, most recently, her doll's hair. The table is still a work in progress and I'd love any suggestions you have.
We also celebrated Harry's birthday this weekend! Happy birthday sweetie. This is the special "melting birthday cake" look by the way. It's best achieved when you realize you only have one cake pan in the house and so substitute a pie pan for the second layer. Genius, eh?
