New Finds from Craft Depot & More

I had 30 minutes to spare before dinner was ready, so I ran out to Craft Depot and scored some vintage items. Apparently, they just got a load from an estate sale. This is what I got...

Rachel had to draw daffodils for a school assignment, as the poem they have to memorize this week was called "Daffodils" by William Wordsworth. After about half an hour, this is what she came up with, along with a poem to go with it. I'm so proud of her!

Her Poem:

By Rachel Fong

Dancing in the breeze
They seem so graceful
They look like dancers
So pretty, so tasteful

They continue their show
Their leaves flap about
I sit down to watch
For this short prancing route

They are so unaware
Of the audience that looks
They really are fearless
In their flower bed nooks

All the sudden the breeze
Fades to a gust
Is the show going to stop?
With this tiny flurry, it must

All movement stops
The daffodils freeze
The magic is over
Why did it cease?

And did you see the new video promoting the book for Where Woman Create - check it out, it's a nice video of all the artist included in the new book:
scroll down a bit and you'll see the video.

  1. You're so lucky to live so close to Craft Depot...I'm so jealous! Rachel - love your picture/poem of the daffodils...I would never known someone in middle school (or is it high school?) would have drawn/wrote something so inspiring! You have a very bright future ahead of you!
