June 17th, 2009 · 7 Comments

This is the next installment in our Mother’s Alamanac from Se7en Series…

So far we have had:

This week I thought I would post Se7en Craft Collective Posts. Most of these posts have se7en crafts embedded within them. I chose this topic simply because when I look at what is being searched for on our blog at the moment – people are looking for things to do with their kids. Aha! Half the world is on summer holiday!

Here you go:

  1. Se7en Crafty Lamps: Most of these lamps work out great for summer evenings out doors… Candles, Lava Lamps, Paper Lanterns, Tin Can Lamps, Paper Box Lamps, Mini Pinata Lamps.

  3. Se7en Party Crafts: These are all crafts we have made at parties that have gone really well when working with kids en-masse.

  11. A City Scene: We used a whole lot of different techniques to make a city: buildings with windows, watercolor animals, scratch crayon cars and bread street signs, to name a few.

    Hi Olivia… The Calendar pages are a new feature on our Calendar posts so they will arrive on our site on the first day of each month, this year. You can take a look at our calendars on the side of our blog and the only calendar printable up so far is January… but I see February is looming!!! Hope this helps and have a great day!!!
