craft day


So Dave and I decided to make a mobile for the baby. We really weren't keen on most of the ones available commercially. We did some searching on blogs, thought about origami fish (decided that we were not talent enough to fold paper) and settled on making concentric paper circles that could spin.

We went to Blick's art store first which was packed due to the fact that all the local art schools just started. We then headed to Kate's Paperie and found all the supplies we needed - including these red painted brad fasteners.

So with some fishing line, paper glue and our trusty exacto knives, we got to cutting. We think it turned out well.
