Making & Listening

Making:
* I hope you’re not fed up with our conker creatures, because we’re not done yet! This hedgehog has just moved into his brand new duplo home.
We’re going to have to go collect some new ones because it’s much easier to poke holes into conkers when they are still fresh.
(Don’t tell the Mr; he is already in despair about all the conkers everywhere.
Our collection for the Nature Exchange doesn’t help with that. Oh well.)
* I finished these and made a little custom order Oak gnome.
* Inspired by this fall crafts roundup, we made a autumn tree picture with fingerprint leaves. Great fun!

Listening:
I can hear some faint U2 playing upstairs, where Kaya is building a giant car park on his bedroom floor.
Myself, I prefer a bit of quiet whenever I can these days.

Joining Dawn this week.

    I love your gnomes – oh my they are so wonderful! We have made some gnomes as we make our year into Waldorf and the boys had a great time with it but yours are an art unto themselves!

    I am not tired of your conker creatures which I think we call buckeyes or chestnuts…All we have here are black walnut trees and the squirrels are way too fast at collecting them🙂
