my favorite crafting partner!

Not only is Max great with music, but apparently he is quite creative with art too! We have been having so much fun lately making pictures and cards together.

He draws on the paper with markers (making lots of circles and calling out "O"), helps me punch out and glue shapes, and then he decides where to put the shapes. Oh my goodness...he is really good!

An added bonus? He made our craft paper into a puzzle! After punching out a circle, he would later find it and fit it back into the cut out area. Isn't that just so clever? Oh and yes, that is Max signing "yellow" in the first photo.

The apple doesn't fall to far from the tree at all! Creativity is mommy's middle name! Just makes sense that you would follow that course too Max.

Max, you are so clever! Your mom is so lucky to have such a fun crafting buddy. I hope Vivian likes doing fun crafty stuff when she gets a little older!

I had to tell you tomorrow I am going to channel my inner Amy, a friend of mine and I are going to a scrapbooking store for a valentine card making class and I can not wait, not only mommy time but I get to try and be as creative as you, I try my best but I think doing classes like this might be a thing I do every month just to get out of the house once in a while.
I just had to tell you that since you are so creative and so crafty!! I love all the cards I get from you and Max.

Max is doing so amazing these days (actually, he always has been amazing). I'm so impressed with all his new skills. Ben could learn lots from him :) And his love for scrapbooking is the icing on the cake! Ben loves using stickers, so he too has gotten the craft gene!
