On Saturday morning, Gordy, Georgia, Josie and I all had to get up at 5:45am to make it to a soccer tournament. On Sunday morning, Gordy and Georgia had to get up early again for more tournament games, but Josie and I got to sleep in. Josie's soccer games weren't until the late afternoon. I took advantage of the ability to sleep until the sun rose, then I wrote a blog post, made a shopping list, did the shopping and prepared dinner. Josie got up early, watched some tv and then went downstairs to the basement playroom and did some crafting. Guess who had more fun?
Crafting on a Sunday morning instead of playing hockey is a luxury only available in the off-season.
On this day, Josie made a paper lamp.
You can see how she included a paper "light bulb" and how she used an elaborate system of string and knots to keep both the light bulb in place and hang the light from the ceiling.
I was impressed with Josie's engineering.
And with her air-brushing skills. She used her Crayola Airbrush machine to decorate her creation.
We hung the lamp from our family room entryway.
I'm sure you will all agree that it added some color to an otherwise dull, unused spot.
Good job, Josie! Welcome to your hockey vacation - now get on your soccer uniform, you're going to be late for practice!
