Picture Winter + other photo projects

So today was the end of Picture Winter, and like I seem to say every time I finish a month-long project like this, it was just the right length.  I enjoyed my 31 days of prompt-following, but now I am ready to be done.  I’ve signed up to take Picture Spring as a self-paced class […]

Snow day!

It may surprise you to hear that I don’t have a history of doing crafty projects with my kids all of the time.  My kids are plenty creative, but they’ve always preferred to do their making on their own terms.  They’re not much for planned projects.  That’s why, when I said, “hey, do you guys […]
