:: Sewing:: The Dress Like Your Grandma Challenge –
” Take a photo of your grandma (or your grandpa, great-grandma, mom, aunt, someone else’s grandma — you get the idea!) and re-create an outfit or piece that they are wearing. Many of us don’t have vintage garments to remember our loved ones by or perhaps we can’t fit into what they left behind. Re-create that image with vintage patterns, reproduction patterns or modern patterns. If your style is different from a family member’s or you want to evoke a different era, find a vintage photo with a garment that suits you and re-create that. The idea is to study a vintage photograph (1980’s or earlier) and transform that photo into a garment or outfit that you’ve sewn yourself.”

::kid lit:: my kiddo’s favorite book this past week – You DON’T Want A Unicorn! written by Ame Dyckman and illustrated by Liz Climo. Illustrations are done with “digital magic” (and are delightful, I might add). Main character is little boy who wears an “I ♥ Unicorns” and carries a stuffed unicorn (A+ for challenging gender norms/stereotypes).
:: journaling:: I keep a separate journal just for keeping track of books I/we read, reading challenges,etc. Yesterday the kiddo helped create a page for “You DON’T Want A Unicorn”
