It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas already isn't it? Our house is no exception to the rule. This weekend I handed my girls one of those little Xmas Felt kits which required a bit of sewing, some gluing and a whole lot of patience. As they sat down with much excitement to get all crafty together, I was instantly reminded of them as little children. My three creative little bunnies, all so very different in temperament.
My oldest girl had this very contented look on her face (she was the perfectionist when she little) she loves getting creative, the middle one looked quite serious (she was all for getting the job done in a speedy and efficient manner, she was the more contented little soul as a child) and the youngest, who made me laugh as she had the grumpiest look on her face and when she noticed me giggling she said "Mum, can't we do some easier craft?" (She would be the impatient one, who surprisingly enough grew up to take her time with her creative processes, this one being no exception, grumpy beginnings aside).
So a little into the crafting joy, they all started to grumble. The glue that came with the kit was not sticking the felt down. Hmmm. They raided my craft cupboard and tried several different glues. A little while later, they all gave up declaring this a bit of an arghhhh project.
The youngest however set hers aside and let it dry. The next day she did a little more. Last night she presented me with her finished work which took a few days to complete because "Mum, clearly craft glue needs to dry, its not superglue after all. " Yes clearly! :-)
I eagerly await the presentation of the other projects. I have full faith they will work it out. :-)
