Hopscotch

We grew up in little house in a large subdivision. These "subs" were popping up in the shadows of large cities all over America. They were the product of the post World War II Baby Boom. My siblings and I were born at the tail end of the boom, but our childhood, and I'm afraid now our aging years", were dramatically impacted by the boom. As a child, it was great! New neighborhoods sprung up, and EVERY house was full of kids! It was a time when parents didn't have to drive their children places for "play dates". You simply walked over to a friends, stood on their porch, and with a melodic lilt, called out your friend's name. "KAAARRRRRRREEEEEEEEENNNNN!!! (This proved to be a great time saver. Instead of ringing a bell, possibly waking up a sleeping child and suffering the wrath of a frazzled mom, you were able to announce from the porch, whom you came to see.) Of course, all those neighborhoods still exist, but there is now an age diversity in the families that live on those streets. There may be elderly couples with no children, quasi empty nesters with children away at school. Families with young children, and young couples that haven't...Read more

Several weeks ago we had a new sponsor quietly join our Wee Folk Art family. We are so pleased, to introduce them now. It is Felt-o-rama. If you have never been to the site, you are in for a real treat. I'll let the owner, April, tell you a little more about Felt-o-rama in her own words. 

A few years ago, I was in search of felt for my own craft projects. I just couldn’t find a source for a wide variety of felt in fresh and vibrant colors. I knew that other crafters out there must be yearning for the same beautiful felt and Felt-o-rama was born! Felt is the ultimate ‘blank canvas’ with a texture like no other and is such a pleasure to work with.
Currently, we

All of these materials are so beautiful! I would have to choose the summer spark wool felt. Many gnomes to be made of this.

That was tough choice to make, but I think the Lamb's Pride in Grassy Noll, Strawberry Smoothie, Orange Cremesicle and Prairie Goldenrod. I'm thinking fun stripey goodies for the kiddos
