Jeez, Hipmomma- your post made me laugh so loud the kids came running in to see what was the matter! I think your mom and my mom ought to get together.
We have a paper mache star that ds1 and dh made together last year, attached to a paper mache'd toilet paper tube and painted bright yellow with a cartoon happy face on one side and a cartoon scary face on the other. (not sure I want to know the story behind that...)
Tonight at my women's group we made wool roving angels- mine is orange, I'm calling her a fairy and the star is going ot have to share top billing now.
