Crafty boy

All of our boys are creative to some degree.  But one has more patience.  One perseveres more than the others.  Hayden seeks out opportunities to be artistic.

Okay, right here he's just loving being the one who walked in the kitchen at the right moment so that he could  lick the beater from the red velvet cupcake batter.  But if you look at his wrist you'll see what he really came into the kitchen to show me.

Those are rolls of duct tape on his wrist.  They make all kinds of designs now - we got these (Duck Tape brand) at WalMart.  This is what he made:

It's a wallet.  He's giving this one to a friend for his birthday this weekend.  The others he has visions of selling.  We have a local Farmer's Market here where he actually might be able to set up a little table of his wares.  We'll see how it goes.  He took it to school and had lots of friends say they wanted to buy it, but, "They keep forgetting to bring their money!"  It's hard being a boy entrepreneur in these tough economic times...  

Speaking of being crafty, I'm going to try to make this wreath today to Easter up our front door.  For now, it just exists on my Pinterest board.  I'll let you know how it turns out.
