A fall mobile

I love mobiles. We have one in the kids’ room and one in our bedroom, and I love that they add just a teensy bit of whimsy to a space. The guys and I collected a bunch of things around the neighborhood during a few morning walks and Dash and I finally assembled our little project last week. By assembled, I mean Dash cut bits of thread and leftover leaves with his scissors at the table (his current favorite activity), and I assembled the mobile. But the point was that in the end we made the project together.

The only supplies we used were an embroidery hoop, thread, and baker’s twine. Plus the spoils from our walks.

I love that it hangs over the play space. I like to think it makes Dash feel accomplished that he made something for our home, with his little fingers. I know it reminds me that it’s not *that* hard to make just a few minutes of time to create something meaningful with my kids. Instead of always spending my free time doing dishes and sweeping the floors and catching up on emails. Eew. Making things is so much better, for all of us.

    So pretty! Are those fabric leaves, I’m assuming? I have a “bouquet of fall leaves” my boyfriend brought over a few weeks ago that’s hanging next to my computer and slowly turning brown. :p
