Resourcefully Inspired Home Crafts

When the interest strikes, we dig into our supplies to create whatever our hearts desire.  We have a children's art cupboard and a mama-supervised art closet.  Our supplies consist mostly of second hand unloved goods from friends.  Their trash becomes our treasure.  (We occasionally refill our basic paints.)  Here are photos of some of our recent adventures.

Cards, cards, and more cards
