Crafting Is A Family Affair Here

We have a 7-year-old daughter who always wants to do whatever she sees her parents doing.

When I'm making flowers, she's begging to work on her own. But Ellie hadn't been terrifically interested in woodworking since her first sanding session was declared "borrrrrrrring!" :)

But she's never been to a store where she hasn't found something to beg for, so when she accompanied Scott on a trip to Rockler, it wasn't a surprise that she begged for a block of pretty maple. Scott agreed on the condition that she would make a bowl out of it on the lathe (under direct parental supervision, of course!).

Pretty nice for a first bowl, isn't it?

And on the back:

Of course, Ellie's bowl will not be going on sale in our Etsy store, which will be launching soon!

A family that crafts together, stays together, right? :-)
