I wish I was.
I try to be.
I pretend I am sometimes.
I buy a lot of stuff with good intentions to be so.
But I'm not.
This salt-dough craft is going all over the internet, though, and it looked 'somewhat' doable. I mean, for crying out loud! I am an elementary teacher! Crafts are the BEST part of teaching! Surely I could attempt it and have somewhat of a success with Luke.
So, without further ado...a little pictorial of last Saturday afternoon. We had fun. About halfway through, he believed me when I said I'd give him a skittle if he put Mimi's apron on (NO WAY to the hat...yet, ha ha!), so at least I have a picture or two of him in it! Speaking of...the giveaway ends TONIGHT so if you haven't entered already, do so! I have to figure out how to pick the winner with rafflecopter (anybody want to give me the Cliff's Notes version?) and then we'll get that info to Karie/Mimi. You will LOVE it!

|Checking his work!|
|Giving it a good stir with a spoon...|

|Seriously thinking about this!|
|Wearing Mimi's apron...note the smartie in his hand as bribery.!|

|Rolling it out....|
|He may or may not be in the middle of "Eyebrows" here...|
|The finished products! Not bad for a NOT crafty mom, huh?|
