Library Living At Home: The Craft Table

Our dining room table is rarely used for eating meals (don't panic - we eat plenty and we are always together). It's mainly our craft table. The library welcomes me to find treasures to create with my children and {Bonus} gives us a new tablescape each month. We found a book on Saint Brigid (I had never heard of her before), and this year for our St. Patrick's Day craft we're making a simple Saint Brigid's cross using different colors of raffia. 

The library is our centerpiece for new ideas and inspiration, and my children (and their friends) think I'm quite the crafty creator. Sharing more, spending less ~ the library helps us live, love, and learn.  

Update: Wednesday afternoon I put cookies in the oven, made a festive party punch and Arielle had her best girls over for a crafty party at the table. In  the words of my youngest son, it was an epic fail. Don't make the Brigid's Cross with 3rd graders - unless you're into despondent girls ("Your directions don't make any sense, Mrs. T." and "Are you sure you know what you're doing?") and a wreck of raffia that will make the most courageous vacuum cry. Stick with the shamrocks, Michele. Stick with the shamrocks.
