We have our own little cottage industry/art studio here in the afternoons when our neighbor kids come over. Since two of them are older than Soren, they make the perfect students for me to relive my art teacher days.
Within moments of opening the front door, they're asking about making a craft, which makes me smile, even if I don't always oblige, depending on the events of the day.
Yesterday I broke out the glass painting markers (great buy for under 7 bucks) and let them decorate some baby food jars, ahem, vases (pronounced with the highbrow short 'a').
I'll bet we'll be making more of these for all the special mothers in our life this coming Mother's Day.
