I am not crafty. I do not own a sewing machine. I do not knit, crochet, or scrap book. I have never felted anything. I do own a hot glue gun but I'm not really sure where it is. However, this week Bob and I did a craft project together. It employed my skills with scissors and a pen. Oh, and tape. I'm a whiz with tape.
We made a Thanksgiving banner for our mantel. I know. Soon, I'll be carving a chain from a single block of wood. Or not. I shouldn't get ahead of myself. Anyway, Bob's job was coming up with a list of things that he is grateful for and then I would write his things on tiny triangles. Bob started with "the world." He then pulled it back a little and added "pumpkins." Next came "school, grandparents and vegetables." "Bicycles and food" made the cut.
Bob ended the list with "I am thankful for chairs so we don't have to always sit on the floor if we don't feel like it because sometimes we feel like it but sometimes we don't and maybe we don't want to sit on the grass because it's wet or muddy and we don't want to sit on the bed so that's why you need chairs and chairs are very, extra, good."
I'm totally digging out the hot glue gun.
