"Homeschooly" crafts

I really would like to explain a little. When we were kids, we would see kids at the thrift stores and other less than "High Fashion" places. We would see things that we just deemed "Homeschooly", well, sometimes I get a hankerin' to do homeschooly crafts. So, I thought it would be fun to share.

This first one is a painting I have been working on for a couple of weeks (with about 6 mo. in between)

I have had a vision of this painting in my mind for a while, and have been wanting to put something like this up in my house for years. Well, I couldn't really find one out on the market that I really identified with, so with Mark's actually pushing me a little , I decided to paint one. So, without further adieu, it's called

I went home recently to see my niece sealed to her family, and while I was there I met Cody's girlfriend. She was Wonderful! I like her a lot, and she wore a really cool sweater her sister made her. It was her name on the back, made out of felt.

That got my gears turning. And I decided to look for felt at the craft store. . .

And decided you can never have too much felt! Oh come on! That is a true homeschooly person at heart!

So, I busted out my girl's Easter skirts, and Spencer's shirt, and Put a little personalizing on them. And then realized they were very Lavern and Shirely! Oh well, I like them (Notice Spencer shirt isn't pictured, because I couldn't find it)

And last but not least I made a Carebear bag. For what I want to use it for!

There you have it. All of my homeschool crafts!

You painted that?

Holy smokes. You're like one of those freaks who never does anything particularly artistic then one day just blows everyone away with an "I guess I can kind of paint."

Keep that up!
