My love of crafting started early...

Whenever I go to mom's, I always look through the photo albums. I've seen this photo of my dad reading to me many times, but for some reason, this time I wondered what book he was reading. I recognized that back cover....I had seen it on my mom's shelf of craft books!
I went to the shelf, and sure enough, there it was.
This book is so colorful! I had to borrow it.
Look at all the fun pictures of toys!
I can see why I would want dad to read this to me. That yellow pig is so cute!
I want to make these Nutcracker Ballet puppets!
My mom had candle making supplies. I remember asking her once if I could make a candle. She helped me make a candle shaped like a bear. It was yellow because that's the color of wax she had. I didn't really care though. The thought of making a candle was so exciting to me. Waiting for the wax to harden seemed like an eternity. When it was ready, I think we painted it somehow? Hmm. 
This book has a little bit of everything. Knitting and crocheting patterns and recipes for jams, breads and cookies. 
Planter ideas and terrariums! I really like terrariums. I used to have one until my roommate's cat jumped on the windowsill and broke it. I think it's time to make one again.
Check this out. Macrame! Mom used to make macrame things back in the 70's. I'm gonna try learning a little macrame this weekend. I'm not making this necklace. Too groovy for me. Thanks mom, for letting me borrow your book. It may be awhile before you get it back!
