my creative space ...

is being overtaken by kiddies!!!

 If he's awake the little man obviously has to go into the sewing room with me, but if I try to sneak off there while the Rainbow girl is otherwise engaged in some princess game, she invariably notices my absence and follows. She invades my space with all sorts imaginative and creative game playing.  Last week she turned a pile of polar fleece into a river, forest and flower field. And then the barbies invaded....

She's even began invading my visual diary, drawing her own  "designs" in there for me to make for her. She browses the stash and selects fabric and yarn for me to make things for herself.  She always manages to deviate my creative direction.  I love that she is so creative and really into crafts, but sometimes...

Anyway, check out the dexterity on these little threading fingers, the hole she is threading through is just a bit bigger than a pin prick.
wanna see more exciting and more grown up creative spaces?  kootoyoo is the place 


  1. my lilli is a bead threader - it started with buttons but then she developed a "taste" for the expensive ones so we deviated to beads and i bought a 10 dollar bag of beads from spotties and some beading elastic -hours of entertaiment :)

  2. She's a creative girl! with an excellent creative imagination!!

    Handsome Steve and I wanted to thank you for joining in on my giveaway, Handsome Steve said his got your name in the cup! :)

  3. Super cute. I've been enjoying sharing the creative space with my girls too.

  4. Hmm, I think I need to get one of those threading machines. Since I always seem to have so much trouble. Do they make them in brunette?? ;)

  5. I am glad that I am not the only one with kids invading. I currently have two living under my desk - maybe I should blog it!
