The Paper Christmas Hat and Mr. Robot

We had a chaotic little trip to Hobby Lobby this morning. We were there to find Christmas hat essentials (feathery garland, sparkling baubles, tacky glue). This (as you can imagine) was entirely the big boy's idea. The inspiration was found in
The Outrageously BIG Activity, Play and Project Book, but I must say that my little friend had far more spectacular results than those featured in the book.

We are feeling very Christmassy around here and I'm also recently inspired by adorable advent calendar ideas over at Kid's Craft Weekly. I subscribe to their lovely newsletter and I'm inspired by it on a regular basis.

Meet Mr. Robot. You may remember when we were inspired to bring him to life many eons ago. Finally, he is able to sit and relax on the sofa. He was entirely designed and cut by the big boy, who also sewed on many of the buttons. I was just the grunt.

When we began making Mr. Robot, the little boy was just a baby and did not require one of his own. Now, it seems a glaring oversight that only one robot lives in our house. Luckily Mr. Robot is BIG and could conceivably be enjoyed by both boys at the same instant...(Yeah, right!).

oh my goodness miss M, your big boy is just beautiful, and I love seeing how creative he is! I love Mr. Robot!You guys are such an inspiration!

How fun! I cant wait until I have kids and can be all crafty with them. Especially around the holidays...
Miss J is just being kind! You are phenomenally inspiring. I have to rethink my whole parenting guidelines now. More art, less eating and sleeping I guess!

I love the robot Luke and you made! Wish I was there to do some crafty things with you. It's so hard to do anything with a 10.5 month old. I'm always amazed how you find time to do all your projects. miss you! xoxo Marcie
