Artful ideas around the web


Today I thought I'd share a few of the artful ideas I've found around the web recently.

I love this gingerbread house accordian book by Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord! We're in the process of making a real gingerbread house and I know that Maia would have fun making a paper version as well.

Take a look at these sweet little birdseed ornaments by The Magic Onions! We're definitely going to be making some soon to hang outside for the birds.

And here, beautiful ice lanterns by Ordinary Life Magic. Thanks to Jenny and Molly for sharing the link after I posted about our ice wreath.

I just read Dallas Clayton's new book, An Awesome Book of Thanks! It's as awesome as his first book, and you can read the whole thing for free online (which of course'll just make you want to go buy it).

And, last but not least, please go vote for MaryAnn Kohl! She is in the running for an amazing grant that would allow her to bring hands-on art to kids around the country who have no art programs in their schools. You can help her win by voting for her now and even every day for the rest of the month.

    A doubt about “voting for MaryAnn Kohl”
    I’m voting her every day but… from Spain: any problem about that?

    Charo – I imagine votes count from anywhere!
