It’s Christmas! And for the last few years at Hungry Heffy Crafts, we have had a Christmas special video with our daughter Piper. Between nativities, and school fairs and stamp designing and all sorts… we simply didn’t get a chance to do one this year. So when Piper asked if she could make a card with me, and she seemed excited about doing a LIVE craft stream – I thought we would jump on it!
A huge thanks to everyone who joined the live stream and showed their encouragement with little Piper. She was in top form, and seemed to know exactly what she wanted to make – a light up chibitronics card!
Please do watch the playback, enjoy her childish ramblings and her witness her creativity flourish. Here’s a look at what she made.
She wanted to use coloured pencils and boy did she get excited about fussy cutting. She used some Lawn Fawn winter fairy images, and some pretty pink posh reindeer. I think she did a fab job at colouring them in.
I helped die cut some panels for the background, at Piper’s instructions of course, and I helped plan out the chibitronics circuit so that we could get the windows to light up. She seemed pretty sure on what she wanted it to do!
See the roof – apparently that is a chocolate chip icecream effect and the doorstep is a toadstool effect. Bless her! She is a funny chicken! When you press the door, the windows light up! Here’s a look.
I am so proud of my girl. She did a great job, and she was so good on the stream. Thanks again for watching and for your lovely comments. She beams with pride and excitement when i read them out to her.
I will leave you there – have a very Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you and your family have a very happy holiday!
From, Lesley, Craig and lil’ Crafter Extraordinaire Piper!
