A Little Blood Never Hurts July 11, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — goldfishpollywog @ 23:14

 

I went out and bought a knife, trying not to get distracted by all the shiny things as I usually do and managed to stick to a simple one. Pricked myself while showing son how not to cut, hopefully that helps the lesson sink in a bit more….Blood has a tendency to do that I’m told. Not much was lost, and much was discovered. I need softer wood or smaller pieces or something to start with. I have ideas and am scouting around to find what I’m looking for.

 

Hopefully Goose will be able to make something for his Grandparents this year as he has really wanted to for a while, but isn’t content with the semi-disposable projects most kids make. He has his heart set on making each couple a christmas tree shaped ornament for their tree. I was skeptical, but I think it just might be doable if we start soon and keep it simple.

Whittling Down Ideas June 27, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — goldfishpollywog @ 20:08

Just going about life.  Trying to get the next school year squared away and craft any spare moments.

So far everything is ordered and I’m putting each weeks work in it’s own folder so that less work will be involved on Sunday nights.  Trying to simulateously think like your son and a teacher is a little challenging.  I know what we need to cover, but deciding how to make it stick for good is another matter.  This year, I’m looking at adding some sort of crafting to our schedule, probably woodwork/whittling. 

Anyone who knows me will have winced at the previous sentence, and rightfully so.  I’m known for being less than graceful, but what is a little blood when giving the gift of expression to a boy?  Knowing him, his first project will probably be a question mark block or something equally geeky cool.    Can’t wait to see!
