SHOW AND TELL: Crafty Time

Welcome to our weekly expedition into the land of Show and Tell. Y’all know Show and Tell is wasted on the elementary schoolers. Join us weekly to show off an item, tell a story, and get the attention of the class. In other words, this is Show and Tell 2.0.

This week I want to brag a little bit about myself. I’ve been on a creative streak lately. First, Joey and I came up with an awesomely cool design for his Pinewood Derby car this year. He decided he wanted to do an animal head. Well, given my, umm, affection for dragons, we naturally went for a dragon head car. Her, in all its glory, is Joey’s 2010 Pinewood Derby car…

I also recently designed and crocheted a hat as part of my Pay It Forward commitment. Aunt Becky wanted a hat just like the one her darling daughter Mimi has. This is what I came up with…
I hope y’all don’t mind me focusing the spotlight on me:)


To see what everyone else in class is bringing to SHOW AND TELL, take a trip to visit the Miss Mel, Goddess of the Infertility Blogosphere.

    Catching up…

    The dragon head car sounds amazing. LOVE the hat!

    Pic of Gabe sleeping on your lap is SO precious!

    Happy (late) Bday Marty!

    LOVE the card Joey drew for Vday, what an artist!

    I definitely believe there are lifeforms in other galaxies. I think space is too massive and amazing for Earth to have the only “life” out there.

    I think apologizing is a key component to long-lasting relationships, but I don’t think apologizing when you’re not wrong should be a requirement.

    Whew…I think I’m caught up now. πŸ™‚

    Love that car! So very cool…

    And have I mentioned how envious I am of your yarn-related skills? I’ve tried, but it’s never worked for me.

    Like the Derby Car–especially the spikes!

    You are so freaking talented! Love the hat.

    Yeah, I am watching Caprica and enjoying it very much.

    You would like the BSG game, at the beginning and middle of the game “loyalty” cards are distributed (face down) that declare whether you are a cylon or not (i.e. you could be a sleeper, you could work undercover, or you can “reveal” yourself). Pretty slick.

    Oh how cool is that DerbyCar! It’s so cool! KUP on how he does!

    And love the hat! I taught myself to knit and didn’t follow through and now I’m thinking of learning how to crochet. I think you’ve given me that extra little push to do it!

    Great hat, its gorgeous. I wish I could crochet, it seems so much easier than knitting which I am not very good at. Thanks for stopping by my blog for ICLW. So many crafts, so little time..
