A Castle

I hope you had a great Mother's Day! I had a lovely time myself, spending time with my guys and my pup and getting a whole lot of the attic cleared out. Though I'm not ready to show you the space yet, it may be safe to start creating in there...

Today's post is a little bit of catch up with Easter. Just a little kit that I picked up at Michael's and thought Angelo would enjoy. While I knew I would be putting most of this together because it says ages 6 and up, it took longer than it might normally because I let Angelo punch all the pieces out before we started assembling. This was before I looked at the directions, which are only a diagram with numbers on each each edge. So, eventually, we put the pieces back so we could figure out which sizes of the odd shaped pieces corresponded to the numbers on the diagram. We glued the roof and tower pieces together since they just wouldn't stay otherwise. Once again, Aleene's Tacky Glue came to the rescue. It works great and is non-toxic. Eventually we will color this; that's the plan. I'm thinking markers and glitter glue, but we will see what Little Mr. has in mind. :)

We're having our second sunny day in a row and are going back to the park! Enjoy you day!


  1. I can't wait for your attic to be ready - we must celebrate with wine and drills! *hugs*

  2. It's pretty close, Darlin'! :) Still need to move some things around and get T to install the wall/mirrors and peg board (oh, and build a table out of those pocket door halves). There's still some further fabric reorganization, but Im fine with leaving it for the moment. :)
