Your little sailors look like they're having a wonderful time! I'm making a list of things to do this summer, and I think boat building will have to be on there.

Good luck for the move.

Margaret Oomen

I wish you all the best as you prepare to move your family this summer. I know how this feels having moved my gang around a number of times within the same area and once to a completely different area of Ontario. I bet you have the most amazing "stuff" to destash. I wonder if you might consider a "virtual" rummage sale of sorts. Have a wonderful weekend and I forgot to mention I love your little people and their fantastic boats.
Fern is sort of jealous.


wonderful! it just reminded me of a childhood moment! thank you!


What a funny summer project, Nini ! The kids looked so happy ! They will keep such great memories of you and this creative time together ... I'm sure you'll meet, in your new county, fantastic people sharing the same interest than you for the crafts, as your kids will go in a creative school ... Bon courage !


Good luck for the move :) It will be exciting for you, we have been in the same house for 10 years now and I am certainly ready for a change of scenery!


Joanie, this is a lovely, lovely post. The images of the children are treasures.

And the boats - wouldn't they make cute tree ornaments at Christmas?

My thoughts are always with you these days as you prepare to sail on your own voyage.


Hello my Joanie ! :) I'm finally back online, phew !!
Oh goodness, you know how much I feel for you, don't you ?! Just been there VERY recently, and everything went OK, so it will go OK for you just as well. I'm seconding Margie about the idea of an online rumage sale ... I'm sure lots of people would be interested ! (me included, eheh)
So, my friend, good luck for all the packing, sorting out, cleaning, cooking, partying, goodbye saying, I'll be with you with all my heart. Do you have a precise date for the move ? And how about the house ?
Oh, almost forgot to say that the boats were soooo cool, it's such a great idea for little ones, I'll have to use it this summer, I'll let you know, OK ?!
Lots & lots of hugs, my friend. Do take care, and always keep a little room for creation, but I know you will. (it kept me sane through the move process)


this is a fun, easy little project. thank you! best of luck to you all as you move.... moving is always a lot, whether two minutes or two hours away. but, yes, new adventures!


Such sweet little sailors! Love this idea and I can see on their faces that they loved it too. :)

Wishing you all the best with your upcoming move. I wish I lived closer, I'd be right over to help you out. Here's to new adventures in life! Good things are coming your way. :)

I love this post! I really wish that we had a stream in the grounds of our school! Unfortunately we have tarmac, but we are getting a new building and top of our wish list is to develop the grounds to include nature areas!

What do you think of my poem/song?
This is exactly how I feel about someone right now, I just wrote this poem/song/whatever to get my feelings out. But I want some criticism on it, I can take it.

So, my friend, good luck for all the packing, sorting out, cleaning, cooking, partying, goodbye saying, I'll be with you with all my heart.

Dear Nini Makes Author;

My name is Amanda White, and I would like to know if I may use the "Benito's successful launch" image in my classroom as a visual aide. We're learning the song, "Where Go the Boats," set to the poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson, and I think this picture would be a great learning tool for them. I teach a children's K-2 choir.

Please let me know if this will be ok.

Thank you very much!
