Doodle Camp

See that new link over there? No, over there <---- on the side. It's for Doodle Camp and you should check it out. Here, I'll make it even easier. I'll put it right here (just click on the picture and off you'll go):

Bug got the book, Doodle Diary: Art Journaling for Girls by Dawn DeVries Sokol for Christmas. I recently came across her website and wanted to share this with you. It looks like fun!

Stockholm Art Fair

We spent the day in Stockholm WI at their annual art fair: Lots of art, music and food. Even better, for Bug, is the play equipment that is right next to the stage so that she can play all day while her dad & I enjoy the music. I didn't bring my camera (other than my phone camera) but we ran into some friends who took this shot.

When Bug was little this guy and his friend played regularly at a coffee shop that we would go to. They even played at her 1st birthday party. One of her favorite songs of theirs was "Cocoa Butter". I took this pic while they were playing that today. 

Her FAVORITE thing at the fair. What I (lovingly) refer to as The 4-Tiered Spinning Tower of Death!!!

Sewing School

I got this book for Bug a few weeks ago.

We finally found/made time today to sit down with it and get started. She sewed on her first button today while making a needle holder out of felt.

Next she'll be making a small pillow for her stuffed animals. Keep watching!

Farewell to Small Mouse

 When Bug's dad got home from work today,  he got some pine out and made a coffin for Small Mouse. 

We wrapped him in his favorite piece of flannel. 

Bug put this note in with him. She had decided that "Prosper" was a good name for Small Mouse. (she's been reading The Thief Lord...) She and her friends added some clover, as well.

 Her dad helped her hammer in the final nails.

I dug the hole and she placed the coffin inside.

She then filled the hole. We are all a bit sad, but happy that Small Mouse/Prosper was comfortable and happy while in our home. 

Small Mouse has died.

Small Mouse has died. I went to feed him and he didn't run up my hand. He was moving a bit and ate a little, but died in my hand, wrapped in his bit of flannel. We only had him 3 1/2 days, but we'll remember him much longer.

Small Mouse has a bath.

Small Mouse is a messy eater. (S)he's had 2 baths today. The 2nd went better than the first. They're very tiring and one must rest and warm up afterwards. Looks cozy, don't you think?

Small Mouse trying to walk.

We haven't come up with a name for the mouse yet, so I've been referring to it as "Small Mouse" lately. I put it in a shoebox to let it stretch it's legs a bit today. Things didn't go so well...

A tiny mouse.

Bug and some friends found this little guy all alone in the alley yesterday. She ran for her dad and they brought him home. I did a quick google search and sent him to the pet store for kitten formula. We think it's a little over a week old. The eyes are not yet open. We made it through the first night, so are a bit more optimistic today.
