When Hannah was born, I immediately had arts and crafts on the brain. I couldn't wait til she was old enough to hold a crayon, a glue gun or scissors. Granted, six months may have been too early but give me points for trying.
We spent endless days with paper and glue and every other item we could find to create something out of nothing. This was before the internet and pinterest. We used our imaginations and imaginations we had. Some days we were exploding. And so did the mess ;)
Fast forward to 2012, when Miss Hannah is majoring in Chemistry at Mount Allison University.
Huh? Whaaaaaaaaaat?????? Yes I know. No graphic arts, no commercial arts, no photography, no arts and crafts, no fine arts career.
Chemistry: the study of matter and the changes it undergoes.
Well wait a minute....WAIT JUST ONE MINUTE : that kind of , sort of, sounds like arts and crafts to me.
So, as I wrap Hannah's gift this year, I say, 'Hello Chemistry! I'd like you to meet arts and crafts. It's a pleasure to meet you.'
I had an extra special thanksgiving this year....12 more reasons to be thankful.
It was an international table , represented by Japan, Dubai, Ireland, Red Deer Alberta. Ottawa, and good old Sackville. Imagine the conversation, the stories, the laughter! We had it all.
And then there was the entertainment.....
It was so great. I made them open the crackers and wear the hats. We went around the table and introduced ourselves, said an interesting fact about ourselves and then said something we were thankful for.
Apparently, according to Hannah, there are 7 interesting facts about me. Fortunately, she only got to five!!!!!
