For just a few minutes that today is Sunday, shall we? Between watching kids and being way more active than normal plus hot weather and resultant lack of sleep… yeah, I’m run down. So run down that I ended up spending most of yesterday in bed, sleeping. Which is how my post ended up being done today instead. Oops?
We’ve mostly been playing board games with the kids, which is – mostly – fun. Last Monday, however, my niece and I had a different kind of fun. We crafted.
See? Yes, that cheezy munchkin is my niece. We both did some marble dip dyeing and the results varied as you can see. I did most of the actual dipping, we each picked colors, and away we went. The one bowl she dipped herself kind of came out a little busy because she almost dropped the thing in the water so it got a second helping of dye, so to speak. Still, we had fun.
As you can see, we ran into a little issue with the plates. Why? Because they were big and square and the tub we used was not quite as big and round. Square peg in a round hole and all that. Still, I love how they turned out.
Coloring wise, my favorite is my mug, as well as my big plate. Overall turn out, my favorite is her bowl. We had a lot of fun and we had a few hiccups along the way (it’s really important you dab all the water off ASAP, as you can see), but I think that for a first time attempting this, we did pretty darn good. She’s asked to do this again, so we’ll see.
