That is truly wonderful tryskal. There is nothing like the feeling when an adult praises and encourages your work as a child.  Smiley

Sorry to hear about your problems, Aprettymess - at least I hope she is better now? Tryskal - what a lovely story - there is nothing better than being able to fix things all by oneself. It gives a child confidence and responsibility. It was so good of you to encourage her to do it, instead of taking over as we adults so often does.
Bananaleg - cute little people. I like the red and blue one with the big hat very much!

bananaleg the popscicle people are so cute. glad you remembered about your elvis flannel  Wink cute bean bags
tryskal that is so cool that your niece closed the pillow. i bet she felt so proud of herself as well. could be the start of an addiction for her  Smiley

i made another memory pillow with one of my aunts sweatshirts. i gave this to her son who had bought her this sweater years ago. he loooooves it and is going to display it year round (even though its a christmas sweater) because she wore it year round

That's such a sweet pillow Smiley.

Bananaleg, my daughter so desperately wants the one with the long hair and the bows, lol. She's super impressed with your popsicle people. She made a bunch too, they're such a hit with both kids actually though the 11 y/o's are a bit more complicated.
Here are 2 more of hers and a painting my little man finally finished, it's been hanging around the studio for Months! I only helped him a teeny bit with technique.





I'm working on another day of the dead sock monkey, I had a face left over from the last one I made that didn't fit but was too good not to do something with. I should be finished tonight or tomorrow.

A Pretty Mess - I'm loving those memory pillows. And, heck yeah, I'd leave them out all year too!

Those popsicle people are just too cute! What a great crafty future all our little ones have.

Child art is very creative!  I think next time I visit with my nieces and nephews, I am taking my felt scrap box and some popsicle sticks!  What a clever idea!  I think when you encourage children (or anyone) to express themselves, it is a good thing!

aprettymess--glad your baby is ok!  I do have pet insurance on my animals but it is thru work. Do you have a Pet Smart?  I know they give out information on inexpensive pet health insurance at their adoptions.  If any of you guys have any great ideas for non-stuffed pet toys, please let me know...my new dog is in need of toys!
