{Cardboard} Wash Your Car!!

You know how we love cardboard in our house, so when I see project pins on pinterest involving cardboard- I pin them.  I came across this pin a few months ago & I logged it in my mind for a rainy day. When Sayer asked me this weekend if we could make a carwash for his cars - I knew just were to find some inspiration. I'm really not one to read directions for projects - or anything if I can help it.  It makes Ikea & Playmobile purchases extra interesting. After looking at the picture on Pinterest, we just started making things up as we went along. This is our version of what I later found out, was a project on this blog. We now have a house full of clean matchbox cars. Word has spread & now there are lines waiting to use this carwash -  it apparently cleans vintage Fisher Price people just as well. 

It's Wednesday- do you need to wash your car?
Hope you are having a nice week. What are you working on these days?

{Illustration} experiments with pencil shavings...

What do you do with your pencil shavings? Marta Altes experiments with them! I kept seeing these fun & clever illustrations pop up on pinterest & I finally looked up her website. It appears that she has a cool picture book coming out in February called, "I am an artist". I'm interested in seeing more of her work- I like her style. How about you? 

Hope you had a creative weekend!
