How to make pinwheels

Lynn here with a tutorial on pinwheels!
I loved making these cute pinwheels! 

Here is how I made them. I cut a 3inch x 3 inch square.

I drew lines in the corners about an inch

I then cut up the lines

Fold one corner and attached a button or you can use a brad! 
Voila! A simple embellishment :)

Gelato,stencil and stamps oh my!

Hello my crafty friends. Lynn here today sharing a few pictures of my fabulous vacation with the kids. 

We love crafts! This week was so very hot in Southern Ontario we worked in the shade or indoors during the afternoons. 
We made our own shirts! But if you see in the center of the table are stencils. I pulled out my stencils for the kids to follow the design. 

I have collected a few stencils over the years. But my daughter really enjoyed making the small hearts on her t-shirts. 

I also love the Faber Castle Gelato's for the kids.
For so many reasons! 

I laid a craft mat out and make small color circles. I then gave the kids water brushes and they used their own gelato colors. 

The kids loved the gelato's because of their bright colors. Each child had their own section with their own color so no arguing. they picked colors that suited them. And the clean up!!!! WoW

I also used some of my Prima and Tim Holt stamps too!!!
