i just need to clean the craft room floor

I can't seem to get in the crafting/sewing groove. I think it has something to do with the fact that you can't see the floor in my craft room or the tops of the tables. I was going to take a photo of it today, but then I started cleaning before I got my camera out and decided it didn't look as bad -hence no more excuse for my lack of getting anything done.
As I was picking up my books from one of the shelves that my two year old decided to climb the other day and ended up destroying, I saw my Ed Emberely's Big Orange Drawing Book. I love this book. It brings back so many elementary school memories because we always made thumb print pictures at Halloween. I think I may even have made this skeleton from the book (found here at his website along with other great projects for Halloween) and I need to find him. Anyways, I am getting this book down stairs and getting my kids to make a few as Fall starts to creep upon us.

I remember that book too! Or at least the thumbprint birds we used to make. Thanks for sharing.

His books are the best for teaching drawing techniques.

Craft room floor? What's that?! Table top work space? Oh, that thing I kinda give a big heave=ho to to make a 6"x6" space to stamp on? Lol! Craft room is always last space to get my attention-and needs it the worst! Trick? Set a timer for 15 mins.---do what you can (you'll be amazed how much you can clear up racing against the clock!) Set it again and work on another part...) Before you know it---you can at least see the aforementioned sufaces! Lol. Blessings, Sharon

oh! I'm glad you posted this. I might get to do some class projects with my son's 1st grade and this might be a good one sometime this year!
