Nap Time Crafts

Personally I was too tired to craft when my baby slept……..10 yrs ago.  Since I was an “older” mom, I took everyone’s advice and slept with him……….I’m sure I would have made my Mother Inlaw proud had I used that time cleaning…….

Anywhoooo……..Serena has started a new blog nap time crafts.  For a new blog, it sure is plum full of great ideas.

Nap time is her creative time.  She has so many cute crafty things sure to keep us busy for a bit.  And I’m sure she’s just getting warmed up.

I LOVE this idea……..I have seen it before……she’s wanted to start an etsy shop to bring in a little extra $$……..I think she should make these for people.  I’ll take a “B”  Mrs. B if you’re reading………look away now.  (yes, my son’s teacher reads my blogs……….how scary is that?)DSC_6482  Serena seems to be the queen at making gifts that have that high gasp appeal, but are relatively inexpensive.  She made these plates…………well she bought the plates……….but she added cute vinyl lettering or graphics, placed a bunch of homebaked goodness on them, wrapped them up in some pretty cellophane and gave it as a gift.  Not actually sure of the cellophane, but I’m sure she didn’t just hand them over unwrapped.   If it were me, I would have warmed store bought cookies up and delivered them…….cuz I don’t have that LDS gene…….but I think I’m learning.  :)  Those girls are making the rest of us look bad and I’m not gonna take it anymore.  DSC_4819 OK, this is just pure cuteness.  She got this idea from someone…….not sure who….but this would also be a great teacher gift…….I know she was using them as learning tools…….because criminy she’ll probably home school too.  And no, that’s not a real apple.DSC_6484 These look familiar don’t they?  She got the idea from Lil Boo Blue……who I featured here a while ago……love these.

What a great project for cheap art………or kid created art…..and of course I love it most because it’s recycling…….that’s something I got on those LDS moms.    So off you go to give her a nice warm welcome to the TCB family.  Enjoy.
