1. Jewelry making
2. The Twofer's baby books - not to be confused with...
3. The Twofer's scrapbooks
4. Sorting, framing or otherwise storing the BEST of the Twofer's artwork
5. Stamping a collection of gift tags (so I always have one)
Notice the craft theme here. This is the short list. The list I have in my head goes on and on. For 5 years (not a coincidence the Twofer is 5) I start projects and then never find the time to get back to any of it. Until, hopefully, now.
That's when we came up with the idea of picking a monthly date when we get together and DO some of this! It would give us an excuse to get together and catch up, plus we might actually feel a sense of accomplishment.
And once we've completed our own crafts, I found a great website for suggestions so we can continue these monthly meetings til the kids are in college.
Twofer Thumbs Up to Kiddio.org, a weekly collection of ideas and links from all over the web. From crafts (mini notepads that looked easy peasy to make) to cooking (make your own toaster pastries) to fun stuff to do with the kids (bubble painting) kiddio has an ever-changing list of options.
I'm looking forward to this new excuse to visit with my friends and have a glass of wine and I can't wait get my crafty on!
Now all we have to do is pick the date. Let's hope that doesn't take another 5 years.
Committed to crafting,
